Colo. middle schoolers take field trip to gun range
Students at a Colorado middle school were able to get firsthand experience with gun safety after their class was taken on a field trip to a firing range.
Volunteers from Project Appleseed, a program by the Revolutionary War Veterans Associationdedicated to teaching American history, took students from Craver Middle School in Colorado City to learn gun safety and fire live ammunition at a local range, KRDO reported.
“I’m very excited, today we’re going to come out here on the gun range and shoot a little bit. The past week we’ve learned about the revolutionary war,” student Jonah Statezny told the station.
“I think everyone should learn how to use a gun but learn how to use it properly, and the precautions you’re supposed to take and how serious a gun really is,” he said.
