Our troops need to be training with blanks. The training and experience needs to be as real as possible. The disorienting nature of gunfire and the way it sounds in an urban environment should be experienced in training. But I would advocate our military building an urban training compound on their bases. It might cost a but it seems better than unnerving the pooulace and stirring up the paranoid conspiracists.
