New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)-  For those that are unaware, two high school students in Lacey Township, NJ were recently suspended for posting pictures of themselves at a shooting range. Although the questionable pictures were never made public, and the school is barred from discussing student situations due to privacy laws, New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) immediately prepared for best case and worst case situation to address this issue.

The worst case? School officials digging their heels in and joining the national war on the Second Amendment. The best case scenario would be officials turning the situation into a positive moment and allowing NJ2AS the opportunity to properly train students on how to safely and responsibly handle a firearm.

NJ2AS President Alexander Roubian spoke at the Lacey Board of Education meeting in the aftermath of the suspensions, offering school officials the opportunity to allow NJ2AS to sponsor a day at the range for students. Most importantly, we wanted to bring the topic of firearm safety to the forefront by providing students with basic training – a common sense measure which could save countless lives throughout America.

Since then, New Jersey Second Amendment Society has been overwhelmed with interest from parents, and most importantly, the students who have contacted us to sign up. Part of NJ2AS’ message included the many Olympian and top competitive shooters who began their careers by accident – casually participating with a friend or family member at the gun range.

Case in point, Matt Emmonds – a gold, silver, and bronze winner at the Olympics who began his shooting career after he went to the range with his father’s friend. Ironically, Matt grew up only 30 minutes from Lacey in Brown Mills.

Moving forward in a proactive and professional manner, New Jersey Second Amendment Society turned a negative into a positive without any litigation and/or waste of gun owner resources – a spectacular turn of events in New Jersey. Although it’s very important to be aggressive, this is an example of finding balance and not turning off those who may had made a mistake, but would be willing to work towards an amicable solution.

After speaking to the superintendent several times, the school board and the principle, NJ2AS is confident we are going to develop a long standing relationship to work together and not against each other. This is why it is important to not always come out guns blazing and threaten costly litigation as an initial reaction.

With that being said, we are ecstatic to announce a firearm safety and training day for Lacey students on May 20, 2018. This event will be hosted specifically for all Lacey students who are interested… FREE OF CHARGE!

Safety training, firearm instruction, firearm rentals, ammunition, targets, range time AND catered lunch will be provided for free, saving each student $300! School administrators, teachers, and family are also invited.

We cannot thank our Platinum sponsor Union Hill Gun Club enough for their generous offer to donate their resources for the students. This will save each student almost $300 each! Students and their families MUST register since we are limited to 100 participants.

    Fantastic idea. Students and parents get a chance to spend a day at the range that so many of us enjoy. Can’t believe there will be 100% of the people will be converts, but if even half are, that is a magnificent step in the right direction. Congrats to Union Hill, their members, instructors and donors. Please post a follow up as this progresses. (Former NJ resident that used to own a 22 SS rifle at age 11)

    @Larry
    It’s Typical for them to be Anti anything ,
    when it comes to Guns !
    My opinion of them is if has anything to do,
    with guns, They want people to be ignorant
    about them . The more people that are familiar
    with firearms the harder for them to ban or outlaw
    a specific type or brand (style) gun or magazine .
