Default the global attack on legitimate firearms use continues

I agree with India if no shooting sports or archery we should boycott them. I doubt Canada would exist without hunting fishing and trapping so to drop one of our traditional sports in favor of table tennis is a personal affront to many of us.

Unfortunately if the youth of today are only exposed to the illegal use of firearms instead of the legal use the sport will die altogether with no new blood coming in. Many people now only associate firearms with military coup or police suppression in their original country of origin so any opportunity to show legal use is important.

I'm just going to go ahead and label them all racists, whether warranted or not.
Seems to be enough to make anyone apologize, retract, and repent these days.

The CGF is racist towards East Indians.

Makes perfect sense to drop the combat sports from Olympics,in Ancient Greece the emphasis traditionally was geared more towards events such as Racewalking and Rythmic Gymnastics/ribbon dancing.
Maybe we can petition to include lawn bowling,pub darts,and speed Chess for 2026?
2nd thought....darts might cause grave concerns with such reckless use of deadly flying projectiles and Chess is likely too offensive with itís reference to war and Imperial conquest.
How are all of these Snowflakes going to survive mid summer in India without a total meltdown,stay tuned for mass flooding.
