University of Virginia Bans Gun Salute On Veterans Day
Apparently there was a tradition of a gun salute.

Just now on radio news bulletin. Statement from university (paraphrased):


“Veterans will be honored. There will be no firing of gun salute this year. The presence and use of weapons glorifies guns and promotes gun violence.”

The university founded by Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration Of Independence.

So what will the UVA history books say about the American revolution? That we won with hopes and wishes? And the invading British armies fell dead by magic?

Casteen was the last gasp of old Virginia.

It’s gotten quite bad since he stepped down. The administration, and the student body, are destroying the university.

My family has attended UVa on and off since the beginning. I assume my generation will be the last though.

It’s just sad.

James Bowman wrote a wonderful history of honor a few years back.

At one point in it he remarks on the “war is not the answer” bumper sticker that was popular in the 2000s.

As he writes, war has been the answer (and solution) to many questions, including the Revolution, and the threat of Fascism in Europe.

Hey man, its not just uva, sadly. In this very thread you have downvoters to the idea of saluting veterans.

There is a big problem brewing in this country.

So what's caused Virginia to go all bitch mode? All the DC trash spewing into Virginia?

I guess the veterans being honored today used Billy Ray Valentine's Quart of Blood Technique in all those wars.

Yes

The tech boom in Northern Virginia in the 90s, together with the natural expansion of the DC suburbs, reshaped state politics.

When they revoke the statute protecting war memorials, you’ll know it’s truly over.

Now that the Dems control the Legislature, you know this is coming.

Yes

Northern Virginia a wasteland now. Miles and miles of tract housing, and subdivisions with names like The Oaks, or The Reserve.

No one is from there, they’re all transplants, so there’s no real culture left. There’s just this petite bourgeoisie snobbery built around the neighborhood you live in, or the golf course you play on.

I haven’t lived there in ten years, but a big weekend for the people of Nova consisted of trips to Starbucks, getting tanked at a vineyard, and then dinner at a chain restaurant, like the Bonefish Grill.
