Up until just a generation ago, rifle marksmanship programs were familiar features on school campuses in America. Millions of Americans learned to shoot at school programs taught in school basements, in school gyms and at ranges the schools took school children to as part of their school's marksmanship programs.
Then it started disappearing in the 60s, even more in the 70s. By the 80s it had almost vanished. Very few schools remain that have active rifle marksmanship programs. But, that is starting to change. And we can help change it.
When I was a kid, everyone I knew had firearms and did at least some type of shooting. Hunting, skeet, target practice and just plinking on evenings and weekends. Even all of the girls I knew growing up knew how to shoot. Now, I live rurally, and of the kids living out rurally today, very few have had any kind of experience, introduction or instruction in firearms and shooting. I imagine the kids in cities have had even less.
This poses a very real problem for the future of our 2nd Amendment rights. When these millions of kids, who have never had any involvement in the shooting sports industry become of voting age, they will have no dog in this hunt. To them, having the right to posses or use a firearm means nothing. They have never owned a firearm, never experienced shooting, so what would they miss? Getting rifle marksmanship into the Schools should be a priority for Americans who are concerned about the direction the erosion of our 2A rights has been taking. We should be pushing for a very up front and aggressive educational program for rifle marksmanship in our schools.
Jim and Kim Heath, two of the Appleseed Project volunteers have been doing just that and they will be on the show tonight to tell us how to go about getting rifle marksmanship programs into our schools.

"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." -Col. Jeff Cooper, Firearms Pioneer “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.” -Richard Henry Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and crafter of the Second Amendment "The unarmed man is not just defenseless -- he is also contemptible." -Machiavelli Minute-of-Angle, Point of Aim/Point of Impact, Natural Point of Aim, Cheek Weld, Trigger Control, Off-Hand, Kneeling, Prone...

Captain John “Woody” Woodall is a retired Fire Captain from Raleigh N.C. He was the Chief of Operations with the North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Foundation from Feb. 2000 until Feb. 2011. He was the official liaison from N.C. to New York after Sept. 11, 2001. During this time Captain Woodall researched the best ways possible to assist the families of the 343 firefighters killed on 9-11. He found the FDNY Fire Family Transport Foundation who was in desperate need of transportation for the families. Through this research four fifteen-passenger vans were donated to the foundation and $380,000 donated to the Thomas Elsassor Fund. This fund was set up for non-line of duty deaths; two retired firefighters that were not in an official capacity were also killed on 9-11 trying to help others. During this time the firefighters of NC collected over $7,500,000 for the families of 9-11.
November 22, 1963 a date that don't mean squat anymore as the people who lived it can't remember where they put the car keys. The seminal event that started the revolution floats off into obscurity as America enters conflict number seventy- two since the Peace Race began. Lee Harvey Oswald guilty as charged , the lone assasian , he did it , no doubt with his $12 rifle and some chicken wings. The highly trained Secret Service does a great job of partying all night at Jack Ruby's bar but kinda let the Prez down by allowing the worlds biggest loser to blow JFK's brains all over Dallas.
