Should Firearm As A Part Of National Service Training Programme's Tool?

‘National service trainees should be trained to use firearms as part of the national service training programme.’ Do you agree with the above statement? Give your point of view and support your answer with reasons.

          Firearm is always said to be fatal and violent to ours but you must know that there are many benefits in having it.As you know that many people in the world do not know how to use firearm, They think that the knowledge about the firearm is not as essential as our life, but we must realize that if one day we being attacked by someone or in a war, the preparation of this knowledge must be compulsory as you might able to use this technologies. So keep in your mind that utilization of the firearm is significant and need to be trained in using it.That why we are securely agree with the statement that the national service trainees should involve in firearm training during national service programme.

          There are many reasons that we agree with this statement .First of all, the trainees will be familiarized to apply the firearms on a benefit from firearm training. They have trained by the authority trainers that come from Police Department or Royal Military Department to use this weapon basically. From that, they can able to use namely M-16 rifles, reload the firearm and service their firearms by themselves even the trainee’s girl can use them in a proper way. In additional, they can use this weapon if the war or confrontation happens in this country. Thus, this not be burden by the army alone, to protect the country from the enemies who attack us. And of course our country will be saved by this youngster and they might serve for this country willingly and sincerely.

          Furthermore, this training is useful in their future especially in the armed forces of this country. In this way, the trainees can put themselves in the security department due to their experience in firearms uses. So the trainees have no chance to misuse this weapon for themselves and they can secure the country’s safety in this way.Besides that, this training can instill confidence among themselves.Before this training,the trainees fear to this weapon and they did not pretend to use it even though in dangerous situation.In additional,they cannot hold on with the noisy sound when this weapons are blown up.In this training,the trainees had fight with their fear and use this weapons.As a result,they can use weapon confidently although dull for while.So no fear when trying to use the weapons in the security department.

          On the other hand, safety is the biggest advantage of firearms training. Everyone who learns how to use a gun becomes less likely to mishandle it or fire it accidentally and it reduces the likelihood of a tragic accident. Most firearms training courses include safety as a top priority, teaching students how to handle, clean, load and discharge a firearm in the proper way. All types of gun owners can benefit from basic safety training, even if they never plan to use their gun except for self-defense. I believe one day every one of us may need firearms in their house. It is because as the world modernized, criminals or outlaws will use firearms instead of using knives as tools for robbery or doing other crimes. Hence, it will be necessary for everyone to learn at least the basic rules in handling firearms. Step taken by the government to train the trainees in national service training programme is a right decision in order to build a safe community in Malaysia.

          In conclusion, we believe the national service trainees should be trained to use firearms as it brings many advantages to us, the communities and even our beloved country. With the knowledge of using firearms, these trainees will be able to protect our country from enemies rather than only depending to armies, easier for them in finding jobs and our safety as the citizens of Malaysia will be preserved. Hence, as a responsible Malaysians, we need to support the training programme prepared by the government especially the training in using firearms in national service training programme because it is not just training but it is one of steps in building stronger country in order to compete with other modern countries.


  1. @humaira-athirah-muin :
    good job to three of you..
    I (personally) like your essay very much..

    Absolutely agree with your stated points..
    And now, I realize the advantages of firearms trains to the national service trainees..
    Absolutely right, in the national service we had been trained to use firearms in the appropriate way and we had been thought the safety way to use it.
    So, the probability to miss use this weapon is less..
    keep it up..

  2. 3 months are not enough for us as a NS trainees to
    learn something new.the government should lengthen the period of NS training for 4 or 5 months as it can give so many benefits to our a Malaysian,we must support this training programme...
    ~btw:we miss our camp:)

  3. Agreed, any national programs that can give improvements to the countrymen should be supported and encouraged, given that its negative effects are minimal and also not into immediate effect.

    Maybe some of us had thought about a part of Islamic value that is not properly practiced during the camp, especially about the incidence of male and female Muslims whom started to become more 'open', in which they are said to had been changed by the 'more social environment' of the program, as they are more shy, well-dressed and well-mannered in the schools previously.

    I(imran) did have this kind of thought before. But I forgot that this program caters for all the citizens of this country which came from different races and religions, so the Islamic atmosphere is actually difficult to be initiated. And not every Muslim trainees are any different before and after the program, or so to speak...

    And then one day I managed to interview an NST trainee and he said because of the camp, he now can wake up early easier to perform the Subuh prayer. This is good progress from the camp, I thought.

    Thus I concluded that this program can serve as another practical field for those who are spirited, and willing, into practicing the way Islam had taught about male-female interactions, and many other teachings. Whether they are truly sincere and had adequate skills and knowledge for it, or not. I take this as an individual self-evaluation, especially for me.

    However the government should do something about this, or else they will just become an Islamic government for nothing.

    Just something to share from me, thanks for reading thoroughly =)

  4. Most criminal use guns to do any crime and the best way to stop them is to good firearm training to the police. Firearm training is very useful in getting knowldge of different techniques of shooting and to operate different guns easily.
