PA: School board rejects NRA grant to help rifle team

The Stroudsburg High School rifle team has been using equipment that dated to the 1970s and was in need of an upgrade. The team learned about an NRA grant that would cover the nearly $5,000 cost of its new equipment. The team applied in December and recently learned it had won a grant. The last step the rifle team needed was the school board's approval.
On Monday, the Stroudsburg area school board voted six to two to reject the grant.
"The kids were very upset and I was upset myself," rifle team coach Mike Qendro told CNN affiliate WNEP.

:banghead:

Amazing idiocy at work! If I was one of the businesses that donated money, I would make sure the School Board knew that I was an NRA Member and was donating on behalf of the NRA.

The school has a rifle team... so it obviously has no qualms with firearms and yet the reject the NRA's grant to give them FREE STUFF? complete idiots. I bet the school would be facing a lawsuit if one of those old guns fromt he 70s blows up in a kids face and the parents sue the school because they rejected NEW FREE equipment for them to use... smh

Local business donated MORE than what the NRA grant was. The rifle team is getting their new equipment. I read this story on a non-communist news website yesterday (can't find it now) and many of the business owners who donated are NRA members.
