Caption The Photo: Duke Basketball Team Holding Assault Rifles


Duke Basketball Team Assault Rifles

Last week Coach K took his Duke basketball team to his alma mater, West Point. During their time there the team participated in some gun simulation training and took pictures with the assault rifles they practiced with.

I’m not sure how to feel about this picture. Given the on-going issue of gun violence in this country, I can see where some might view the picture as insensitive. But on the other hand, the team was at a military academy and participated in a simulation and I don’t see any harm in documenting the experience with a photo. Either way this is sure to raise some questions.


  1. Six black men, five of them holding semi-automatic guns, O’Reilly and Limbaugh will have a field day with this!
