Just my opinion,
Good idea though I like it.
I also read that sometime around 1990, NYC Schools sold off many many target rifles... over 1000.
Everybody know that when a gun gets within 1000 feet of a school it "goes off" on a rampage killing and maiming all children in the area. It just couldn't be safe!
What a concept ! Teaching kids responsiblity and safety ! If only they would. Here in Massachusetts they're intent on suspending 6 year old boys for sexual harassment ! :banghead:
It takes some of the mystery out of the firearms, and teaches kids how to properly handle the guns. And with that knowledge, the kids would be less likely to accidentally shoot themselves, or others from fooling around with an unattended gun left out somewhere else.
Just my opinion.
They shoot .22lr target rifles and have won the State Championship numerous times.
So if you have a high achiever son, who can handle Greek, Latin, Chinese or, Russian (or one of the standard foreign languages), excells in academics, enjoys sports and likes to shoot, this may be the place for him.
On another note, I do recall seeing a television program, Shooting USA??, about high school trap teams in Tennessee.
In Junior High I took archery...(not so many years ago) in the basement of the school gym.
I say...bring this all back. We have programs in schools to educate the kids about the importance of responsible sex and contraception...no reason we shouldn't be teaching them the importance of responsible firearms operation.
