Gun-themed T-ball jersey stirs controversy (VIDEO)

An Oregon T-ball team’s jersey has ticked-off at least one mother in the small town of Sandy. The reason – it depicts crosshairs.

“I think this is being made into something bigger than it is,” said Brain Coleman, owner of Rapid Fire Arms who sponsors the team. According to Coleman, the crosshairs are simply part of the store’s logo – and he isn’t willing to change it.

Despite overwhelming local support, the parent in question (who asked not to be identified) said the jerseys were “inappropriate.” She went on to explain, “We need to be eliminating any sort of association between children and guns, rather than promoting it.”

In an ironic turn of events, Coleman is reaping a great deal of publicity from the controversy.
