Watch Me Play Beethoven On My Trigger

Meet My Friends, Mr Smith And Mr Wesson

An Italian concert violinist has been given a gun permit so he can protect his $12 million Stradivarius violin. Matteo Fedeli has been given police permission to protect it with a 357 Smith and Wesson Magnum. He said he also has an armed escort as he travels to concerts.

FOOTNOTE: Violins begets violins.

(that may not be a relevant reference in Australia??? )

Ridiculous amount to pay for a violin.

Remember this guy who left his Stradivarius on a taxi backseat a few years ago? Would a gun have helped?
