You just wrapped up another semester of college. What are you going to do to celebrate? Shoot up a dead Xbox 360 with semi-automatic rifles of course!

Ben Strauss sends in these pics of the celebratory firing squad that both wrapped up another year at a local college near Kansas City and bid adieu to a red-ringed Xbox 360.

Here's the story straight from Stauss:

I was at the shooting range yesterday with my friends and my brothers. We had decided on taking our rifles out for a long needed range day when we happened upon a couple of students that were celebrating the end of the semester at a local college where I live.

Happens they had an Xbox 360 that decided to RROD on them during the semester, so they decided to make use of the hardware the best way they knew how. My buddies and I offered to help them solve their "problem."

Thanks Ben!

In most european cultures I think kids grow out of having the need to shoot anything by the time they are adults. That is not to say, there aren't nutters there either that love their guns, but on the whole most adults don't go out to shooting ranges and have other past-times.

It seems most North Americans just HAVE to shoot something, regardless of age.

Does everyone live in so much fear that the only way to feel safe is by owning and regularly shooting something, so you feel you can protect yourself one day? This is a genuine question. What am I missing? I just don't understand that gun fascination in my 40s. I understood it when I was like 14-15 or generally as a teenager, when I had less control over my future and a gun, sounded like it may solve some issues, but as an adult it does not compute. So please enlighten me.
