How long has it been since the Biathlon was shown in the US ?
It’s still an Olympic sport. An exciting one, at that. But it won’t be shown on US television because it shows a firearm being used in a fun, athletic way.
And that sport is ridiculously tough.
Actually, I saw it during the last winter Olympics. I couldn't believe it.
Early this year, the commie idiot mayor of London banned tickets for kids to next year’s Olympics for the biathlon because he deemed guns to be “violent”.
The UK who incidentally, have a team participating in the competition argued they do have programs showing the safety factor of the sport. Later, the mayor OK’d.
Not since 1978, when they disallowed the use of centerfire target rifles to allow the girls and Euroweenies to play, abandoning all previous rules, records and examples set by those who had competed in the sport all the way back to its origins as the *Nordic patrol rifle* event.
