    Army cadets banned from carrying rifles on Remembrance Day parade because it 'glamorises' weapons

    Army cadets have been left ‘bitterly disappointed’ after being banned from
    carrying rifles on a Remembrance Day parade - amid fears the weapons
    might 'upset' onlookers.

    The young cadets have proudly marched with rifles for decades and around
    100 had spent months fine-tuning the drill where they would showcase
    their skills.

    But the cadets were left 'gutted' just days before the big event when
    military top brass cut the rifles from the display following complaints from
    members of the public.

    My Comments, If it upsets people seeing guns at a Military Parade The answers simple "DONT F*****G GO".

    I've been sorta MIA from the site for awhile, but I seem to have found my way back. And what do I discover? Army Cadets being disallowed the carrying of weapons????

    Makes me glad to live in a country where it's still a constitutional right to keep and bear arms!!! Our American Legion's Honor Guard always carries rifles, whether it's in public or at Post functions.
