Shoot to live, Live to shoot

The Red Brigades have made something of a comeback in Italy in the last few months. I will write a report on this soon, but here I would just like to record what was found after a march in Rome this weekend [article in Italian].

A leaflet with the image of a Walther P38, a pistol that recalls the Left-wing terrorism of the 70s. Above, the words "Sparare per vivere, Vivere per sparare" - Shoot to live, Live to shoot. Below, the words "Nulla รจ finito" - Nothing is over.

This is not the hick America of the NRA; this is sophisticated Europe.
