North Carolina Schools Prohibit Marksmanship Team From Participating In Statewide Tourney

I missed this story earlier this month. A North Carolina school district banned East Wake High School club marksmanship team (a team affiliated with Future Farmers of America) from participating in a statewide shooting tournament. The reason? One of East Wake's principals, with the support of the area superintendent who oversees that school, stated that ammunition and students don't mix.

The full story is here.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, Ducks Unlimited and the International Hunter Education Association voiced their strong objection to the blatantly unconstitutional act.
