• SHAME: School Bans 21 Gun Salute Honoring Veterans Because It ‘Promotes Gun Violence’

    The 21 gun salute will no longer take place on school grounds at an Iowa High School’s annual Veteran’s Day assembly, due to the state’s gun laws, according to NBC affiliate KWWL.

    Administrators at Belle Plaine High School in Belle Plaine, Iowa, say the event’s traditional 21 gun salute “promotes gun violence”.

    Post 39 legioneers, member of the a veterans’ organization American Legion, offered up their property near the school so the time-honored tradition of memorializing veterans can continue.

    Veterans and residents of the small town were outraged by the news to ban the salute.

    Post 39 legioneers fear that it’s only a matter of time before high schools across the state and country, may soon be following suit.
