2 High Schools In North Carolina Just Put Shooting Ranges In Their Facilities. Do You Support This?


rfleGun violence and safety is a hot topic in the country currently, and there are very polar opinions on the topic as well.

Despite all the recent controversy, some people still need to train for the future line of work, whether it be training to be a police officer or joining the armed forces.

JROTC recognized that they should start having JROTC members practice their aim as soon as possible to make for the best shooters, so they arranged for just that.

The JROTC got funding to build a 1,200-square-foot, six-lane, indoor shooting range at Smithfield-Selma High School.  Students started practicing their aim since last week, and the range has been a hit.

Students are shooting with Daisy air pump rifles, however they still need to undergo comprehensive gun safety training before being allowed to enter the range.

Students need to take a safety course, and get a 100 on the test.  In addition they must get a signature from home and sign a safety pledge. Once all these things have been completed, they are tested in the range for knowledge in proper gun safety.

Currently, only four students are cleared to use the range, but there are hopes that this number will increase with time.

What do you think of this idea?  Is it safe and worth it?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and if you wants to find out more about the gun range check out the video below as well.
