    School wants to build a (gasp, shiver) shooting range.

    Sounds like a great idea to me. Teach the kids safe gun handling.

    Southern Pines School Wants To Give Firing Range A Shot

    SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. Many schools teach shooting and gun safety classes off campus. Now, a school in Southern Pines wants to build a shooting range at the school.

    Calvary Christian School has a small student body, and a big request. The school wants a shooting range on campus.

    "I don't really see the purpose in it myself, but they're a private school," Southern Pines resident Jill Phillips said.

    Certified instructors would teach students about shooting, using air rifles and BB guns instead of actual firearms. The only thing standing in the way is a town ordinance.

    As it now stands, you cannot shoot a weapon inside the city limits. The town council will decide Tuesday whether to carve out an exception for schools like Calvary Christian.

    Headmaster Dwight Creech said the school already offers the class off-campus. Having it on-campus would save time, money, and maybe, even lives.

    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
    "Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."

    Let's do this. I am a perty fir backhoe operator and if we hit a water line I can fix that too.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    My high school had a rifle range in its basement. In 1964, ROTC was a required class for the boys to take and marksmanship was a part of our grade. It wasn't unsual to have rifle clubs and shooting teams. I'd like to see that return.

    You can't shoot a BB gun inside city limits? Oh, that's right -- might put an eye out.
