Web letter: Rifle fire salute for starting lineup inappropriate in high school gym

I recently attended a local high school basketball game. The gymnasium was packed with excited and cheering fans.

When it was time for the starting five to be introduced the fan next to me said, “You might want to cover your ears.”

There was an honor guard on the court with what I assumed were wooden guns. I realized I was wrong as a round of rifle fire was used to salute each starting player as their name was called out.

Yes, they were using blanks, but in this day and age does anyone anywhere need to hear gun fire in a school gymnasium?
