Proposal to ban archery in NY schools

NY Capitol News

One New York lawmaker wants to put a stop to archery programs in schools. 

Manhattan Democrat Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal says they promote “gun culture.”

She says she introduced the bill to ban such programs in the state after it was revealed that the Parkland Shooting suspect honed his shooting skills in a marksmanship program at the very school he’s accused of killing 17 people. 

Supports of the program say they foster concentration, patience, and self-disciple – all attributes that carry over to the classroom.
