University of Virginia President Jim Ryan explained the school’s reasoning in a Facebook post.

The University of Virginia has eliminated the 21-gun salute from its Veteran’s Day ceremony after some expressed concern that the traditional sign of honor would disrupt classes and scare students.

University president Jim Ryan explained in a Facebook post that the Provost’s Office and Col. Michael Hough, commanding officer of UVA’s Air Force ROTC detachment, came to the decision for two reasons.

“First, to minimize disruptions to classes, given that this event is located at the juncture of four primary academic buildings and is held at a time that classes are in session; and second, recognizing concerns related to firing weapons on the Grounds in light of gun violence that has happened across our nation, especially on school and university campuses,” Ryan wrote.

He argued that “the 21-gun salute is not a required, or even typical, part of Veteran’s Day ceremonies” and suggested that the practice is meant to honor “those who have lost their lives in service to our country.”

In fact, according to the Arlington National Cemetery’s website, the 21-gun salute is used by the United States to honor a wide variety of symbols and people, including the national flag, the sovereign or chief of state of a foreign nation, a member of a reigning royal family, and the president, ex-presidents and president-elect of the United States.

While it’s not officially prescribed for Veteran’s Day, it is also used on many national holidays that are not meant to honor fallen soldiers, including George Washington’s birthday, President’s Day, and Independence Day.

The University of Virginia has been firing a 21-gun salute at its Veteran’s Day ceremony for the last ten years.

Ryan refused to change the plans for this year’s proceedings, but said he might consider re-introducing the salute in future years.

If what's ahead scares you and what's behind hurts you, look up; He never fails you.

If My people will humble themselves, pray, seek My face & turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven & will forgive their sin & heal their land.

Looks like if the snowflakes would be disrupted and traumatized the University could just make an announcement that for a period of 10 seconds they would be conducting the Salute to honor the veterans and to plug your ears if it may bother you.
A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.

Be careful. Sometimes they look like regular people.

No matter how you look at it at the end of the day BO still stinks.

This guy needs to grow a pair, instead of being the neutered cow-towing pacifist to these far left socialist.

So these young people are smart enough to attend a "school of higher learning", that a small percent of the population achieve to graduate from, yet they can't be disrupted for a couple minutes to honor our fallen who died for these youngsters to have the freedoms they enjoy. What a [beeep] pantload. These a-holes need their brain housing groups re calibrated. This appeasement of the far left snowflakes has gone too far.

Exactly, WAY TOO FAR and it's not over yet!
Just saw where they are now after Disney animated movies such as Snow White, something about the prince kissing her without her permission while she was asleep, and there are others.

The cannon salute has been reinstated.
