Those appear to be rifles, and other than small bore/ air rifles, rifle teams at the primary school level are largely unheard of.

However, even in California, there are some schools/clubs that have highschool shotgun skeet/trap teams.

Often, prizes for winning competitions are small college scholarships.

*the more you know!*

**Youth shooting sports also tend not to result in injuries on the scale that say, soccer or football do, and are therefore on the level of just above chess on the frequency of injury.

That would be better than the alternative, right?

But it seems like the answer is a firm "maybe?"

That's a frightening statistic

Police killed 1093 people in 2016 in the US. In 1st six months of 2017, police killed 492 people. When communities protested in Ferguson after the killing of Mike Brown they were met with military grade weapons, says @opalayo #ICM2017 "We have a human rights crisis now in the United States", says @opalayo #ICM2017
