School officials in Pueblo County, Colorado are bucking the anti-gun trend and recently approved a field trip for middle school students to a local shooting range where they learned about gun safety and how to properly handle a firearm. The gun safety and marksman group Project Appleseed, an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, was brought in to instruct students, all of whom fired at the range with live ammunition. The trip was scheduled shortly after students learned about The Revolutionary War in their classrooms.
Somewhere, there's an alternate universe with a much happier version of @CommonCentsUSA. An alternate reality where "gun safety and marksmanship" is a required unit in a required Physical Education course. Where every high school student must pass these to graduate. Where Congress, citing it's constitutional authority "To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia," provides every high school graduate with a military rifle.
Well, we're nowhere near that yet, but this story is encouraging. At least one school system is teaching some gun safety and marksmanship.
