Constitution Day Seminar

2nd Amendment Rights & Issues

Although many know that the Constitution protects a citizen’s “right to bear arms,” few comprehend what those words truly mean. To help students gain a deeper understanding, the John A. Halter Shooting Sports and Education Center balances the teaching on the range with Second Amendment-focused lectures in the classroom.

This approach brings the concept of freedom to life by literally placing the idea into the hands of students. Once a class, seminar, or camp finishes, individuals will have a deeper and more personal understanding of the Second Amendment and the importance of protecting the liberties guaranteed by it.
