These are government experts who are making engineering decisions, even though they were political science and psychology majors in college, since calculus was too hard. They're the best and brightest, just like the ones who knew better than Eugene Stoner and his engineering specifications for the M-16. Who cared if the government used a different powder in the ammo, since there was so much of it left over from WWII and Korea. And then there were the geniuses in government who assumed the design of a direct impingement action meant "self cleaning," so M-16s were shipped into the field without cleaning kits. Oh, and the chrome plated chambers called for in the specs? Too expensive, so get rid of it from the production models.
I wonder how many of our guys were killed in Viet Nam because of "government experts" and what they did to Eugene Stoner's M-16?

(Do I really look like a guy with a plan?)
If dumb politicians died for their own mistakes in stead of causing the deaths of others they would think twice.
