PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. - Middle school students moved their lesson from the classroom to the shooting range.
It wasnt your typical field trip. A group of students in Pueblo County was firing live ammo and learning about gun safety.
"I'm very excited, today we're going to come out here on the gun range and shoot a little bit. The past week we've learned about the revolutionary war," said Jonah Statezny, a Craver middle school student.
"My favorite part is shooting guns. When I was little we used to go to the shooting range," said another student, Danielle Cooper.
Appleseed is a nonprofit, dedicated to teaching American history and traditional marksmanship.
For the first time, the national organization brought guns into a classroom, right in Pueblo County.
"We've never been allowed to bring actual real firearms into a school. Until this week. This is a very big deal. We had them touching fire arms, holding them and learning about how to handle them safely, said Elizabeth Blackwood with Appleseed.
"I think everyone should learn how to use a gun but learn how to use it properly, and the precautions youre supposed to take and how serious a gun really is," said Statezny.

Every High School should have classes in gun safety and shooting. Heck, have the inner citie’s gun deaths are from gang banger who can’t shoot—and just spray bullets, killing innocent people in the cross fire—being able to shoot might save lives!
Wonderful program offered by a very giving group of men and women.
Poke around the website, we are getting some really great training opportunities with handguns and carbines. Lots of tools for sale and the gun ranges are always busy!!
Knowledge is power, suppression of knowledge is also power. This is why the left doesn’t want people to know about guns. If people know about them they will be able to see though the lies being spread about guns.
