mmmm, there is a thought. The last 3 principals have been trying to get us off campus, actually the whole time my son has been on the team (5 years) and before, and every year it is something new. I guess from the perspective of parents who do not have kids on the team the idea of a rifle team practicing in the basement could be scarey. But that is letting ignorance take over. Rifle is the only high school sport in the state that has never had a reported injury. But actually the objection isn't about possible injury to team members, it is that the "weapons" could be used against students in the building. Which is also ridiculous, because the rifles are single shot, most have to be cocked for 3 seconds between shots, and they are shooting pellets not bullets. They would really only be effective weapons if used as clubs. And even that wouldn't work as they are actually pretty delicate and would break apart if used this way. Just about everything in a classroom would be a more effective weapon.
