School Board Approves Gun School Policy

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

On Monday night, the Bozeman School board gave the "okay" for an after-school program to bring guns on school grounds for demonstrations.

The trustees voted seven to one to allow Bow Hunter Safety class instructors to use firearms with no ammunition for their teachings. The approval of the program is only for this year.

Next year, the program will have to get approval to use firearms, again. Nearly 300 students per semester participate in these classes.
