    Reebok CrossFit stores in Manhattan overrun with protesters angry about Glock gun giveaway


    A pair of Manhattan Reebok CrossFit stores was overrun Saturday with protesters upset that handguns were being awarded to winners of an annual fitness contest.

    Dozens of members of Gays Against Guns and New Yorkers Against Gun Violence jammed the sidewalks outside the stores. The brand’s flagship location in Midtown shuttered its doors for the first half of the day Saturday in apparent anticipation of the protest. “Glocks should not be glamorized,” Public Advocate Letitia James said at the protest. “Glocks should not be given away as a prize.” The Reebok-sponsored CrossFit Games, in their 10th year, are taking place this weekend in Carson, Calif. Dave Castro, the director of the event, made the tone deaf announcement last week that the top men’s and women’s finishers would receive a Glock handgun in addition to the more than $2 million in prize money being dished out.

    Reebok upset CrossFit Games to award winners a Glock handgun

    “It is an outrage that an organization like CrossFit Reebok, who purport to be about health and fitness, are giving away a weapon of death and destruction as a prize,” said New Yorkers Against Gun Violence Executive Director Leah Gunn Barrett

    Damn, must be small locations if 20 people can 'overrun' them. Private business and people have a right to own a firearm. So you can fuck right off.

                        I was/am a crossfitter (into triathlons right now so that's on hold) for maybe eight years. The entire program is deeply rooted in military (SEALS and Marines in particular) and first responders (fire/Leo). I haven't been on their main page in a while but it was common to see with guns all over it.

                            Is that a "Drop the Glock and pick up cock" sign? Not that there's anything wrong with that...;-)
