Colorado middle schoolers are learning firearms safety from the comfort of their classroom

In Colorado City, Craver Middle School students got to put their hands on an entire assortment of firearms for a 3-day gun safety and awareness program, which officials from Project Appleseed, the NRA, and the Colorado Board of Education say is designed to teach children to respect the seriousness of owning and using a firearm, with a foundation in American history. Jim Heath, state coordinator of the program said, “I think that it’s better for them to have a respect for it [and] know how to handle it,” when discussing the course, which culminates in students from grades 6th-8th all participating in a live-fire exercise at a local gun range.
