NRA- Nonsensical Rifle Addiction

I Just returned from FIG World Championships (Gymnastics) in Canada. There were thousands of people from all over the world attending each proudly wearing their team colors.fullsizeoutput_48caThe day after the shooting in Las Vegas I overheard many speaking about the USA’s addiction to guns. In one store there were displays of knives made by local artists. The kind of knife that you are more likely to display than to actually cut anything with. There was one gun, a revolver, in the case. I heard one of the team members from Italy say in Italian, “That must be for the Americans”. (I speak Italian so I understood what he said) All his teammates laughed at his joke.

I am a proud American. I have represented the USA at International Competitions throughout the world. No one like to be laughed at. But you know what, he was probably right.
