Re: Have people seen this?

Thanks for sharing. Signed the petition.

I can't speak for the rest of the country/world but I can tell you people here in Minnesota are really hurting. There's been so much gun violence lately. Philando Castile was shot less than 2 miles away from our gym. Two toddlers were shot and killed in North Minneapolis last week. There is so much sadness and fear...this really couldn't have come at a more inopportune/insensitive time.

How was I supposed to know when I affiliated our gym to CrossFit that I would be signing up for a pro-gun organization? What do guns have to do with health and fitness?

Regardless of your stance on the 2nd amendment/gun violence/etc, you have to admit it is a very polarizing topic, and in what historically I have found to be a very inclusive and positive community, I just don't see how this helps make CrossFit better.
