while the where is irrelevant, The where is also easy to determine due to the lack of people swinging around rifles in a decent bit of the world. only in America i think the saying goes. i bet the emergency room visit was expensive too. no worries about gun swinging, bayonet slashing, or hospitals gouging citizens for cash up North.

Somebody should really make the point to that person that a gun is not a toy. A gun with a sharp pointy stick on it is even less of a toy. If you want to spin/twirl/riverdance with a toy, go for it. But leave the real weapons (regardless of if it was loaded or not) home.

I'm pretty sure it was part of the competition. They weren't spinning it for fun or pretending it was a toy. It was likely just a dummy rifle. You should watch an ROTC armed drill team competition on YouTube so as to understand better.

They are dummy weapons, but however, the bayonets are very real and extremely sharp for no reason at all. They got in serious trouble despite me forgiving them, and we still competed.

@10, your probably right. When i saw competition, i assumed it was a shooting competition. It didn't occur to me that it might be something else. But my point still stands, a weapon is dangerous, be it knife or gun, and safety should excercised at all times.
