Weapon Imagery in Drum Corps

Recommended Posts

How about petard imagery for these costume 'designers' Circa MDCCLXXXIX?

I joke but haven't we had beheading and lance-wound imagery already?

I remember watching the Three Stooges then running around poking my friends in the eyes. 

Oh wait, I didn't do that. I knew the difference between make-believe and reality. And I'm guessing young people today do too. I hope people don't hurt themselves straining to turn this into an issue.

I believe Brett Kavanaugh is a staunch supporter of rifles in Drum Corps being protected by the 2nd amendment, so it's a moot point.

Preaching to the choir here because we know our wonderful performers start at an early age honing their skills so let them know your decisions so they can learn tossing teddy bears and not waste their time on weapons. In all seriousness I think it's the kids that should decide that. They live in different times with lot more concerns than us middle age and old timers did. I would follow their lead will still love Drum Corps not madder what is being tossed.

The kids are fine. It's the adults projecting their foibles and agendas onto them that bother me.

Whoever this person was obviously doesn't realize how wars are fought and how drum corps has a military origin.  Though I am compassionate when it comes to general issues that offend mass groups of people, I have to agree with the folks who say that rifles and sabers in drum corps are a non-issue. 

They are decorations.
