The Hidden Battle Over School Courses You Haven’t Heard About

In a concerning move for passionate Republican voters and pro-Second Amendment advocates, the Biden administration is facing strong opposition from Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin over its handling of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA).

Passed with bipartisan support in June 2022, the BSCA aimed to create safer and more inclusive schools in response to tragic mass shootings. However, it inadvertently affected funding for hunting and archery programs in schools.

Sens. Sinema and Manchin are standing up against the administration’s misinterpretation of the law, which denies federal funding for elementary and secondary school courses teaching children about shooting sports.

Republican Senators John Cornyn and Thom Tillis, who were also co-sponsors of the BSCA, joined the call to rectify this issue. They stress that hunting and archery classes should be eligible for funding and not penalized.

The Education Department’s decision has faced backlash not only from Republicans but also from pro-Second Amendment groups such as Safari Club International, National Shooting Sports Foundation, International Order of T. Roosevelt, Outdoors Tomorrow Foundation, and the National Rifle Association.

Rep. Mark Green introduced legislation to clarify that programs training students in archery, hunting, or other shooting sports should be eligible for federal funding.

Republicans view the administration’s stance as another example of its radical agenda with disregard for the law and individual rights. They emphasize the importance of preserving our traditions, heritage, and the responsible use of firearms.

As this battle unfolds, it is crucial for Republicans and like-minded Americans to stand together and protect our rights from government overreach. Let’s ensure that valuable programs promoting essential skills continue to thrive in our schools, fostering responsible citizens who cherish our constitutional freedoms.
