Schools treating students like criminals for going to a range
I can understand the pressure the police agencies are under, particularly at this school, but there's absolutely no excuse for the way this was handled. This is not just a safety thing. This is a social ostracism thing. The effect -- whether or not it is the intent -- is to place dramatic social pressure on adolescents to avoid guns and any positive experiences or training relating to guns. It will kill the positive gun culture, if allowed to continue, and the only remaining gun culture will be the criminal and spree killer culture. It's like Operation Fast and Furious. Give the criminals guns and let them commit crimes, then use the crimes to call for gun control. That's why the police only crack down on the people who aren't dangerous.
