Over 100,000 Kentucky students participate in an archery or hunting program at their school, but if the Biden Administration has its way, these programs will be history. The administration is interpreting the 2022 Bipartisan Safe Communities Act to prohibit funding for school archery and hunting programs. Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron criticized the Department of Education for “manipulating schools and students for political purposes.” It’s a stretch to say that these programs, which contribute to practical life skills and teach kids to use their talents and interests, somehow contribute to violence. The Biden education department is under fire. Not from the students are learning archery and hunting skills, but from angry parents who see this move as nonsensical and affront to their values and choices for their children.
