Smithfield-Selma High School just made a move that is bound to infuriate gun grabbers. The school opened an indoor shooting range for the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps program.
JROTC built a 1,200-square-foot, six-lane, indoor shooting range inside the school and began using the facility last month. The $10,000 to build the range was donated by The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
“There’s a marksmanship safety test they have to take, and they have to get a 100 on it,” Commander David Legman told WRAL. “In addition to that, they have to sign a safety pledge, get permission from home and then finally demonstrate on the range that they know how to handle one of these air rifles safely.”
Four students at the North Carolina school are currently certified to use the range but Legman hopes to have all the seniors certified and using it by the fall.
Gun control activists will certainly be screaming about having this not only in close proximity to a school but actually inside it, but Legman says so far, there aren’t any concerns and the range poses no threat.
The cadets will be using Daisy pump air rifles. It is terrific that they can practice their shooting without having to leave their school. This is a win for the Second Amendment and common sense. You can learn more in the video below.
