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.
“We’ve never been allowed to bring actual real firearms into a school. Until this week.”
