The University of Arizona Wants to Terminate the Arizona 4-H Shooting Sports Program!

Monday, December 19, 2005

 

After a long-standing Wildcat tradition of promoting and developing life-long recreational activities, the University of Arizona wants to terminate the Arizona 4-H Shooting Sports Program as of January 1, 2006.  This decision is based completely on the State of Arizona Board of Regents Audit Committee recommendation. 

 

As a result, the University of Arizona Police Department would confiscate all University owned guns and associated gear connected with this program for disposition.  If the program is indeed terminated, this will be a tragic loss of shooting opportunities not only for both middle school and high school students but also for all up-and-coming shooting enthusiasts statewide. 

University of Arizona President, Peter Likins, has temporarily suspended the decision to end Arizona’s 4-H Shooting Sports Program.  However, to ensure the University does not move forward in the future to terminate 4-H Shooting Sports, program coordinators are asking for comments from concerned Arizona citizens in support of the program. 

Please contact members of the Arizona Board of Regents Audit Committee, University of Arizona President Likins, and State Legislators, and respectfully ask them to reverse this decision!

Please be sure to mention the Arizona 4-H Shooting Sports Program assists youth, their families, and adult volunteers in becoming productive and self-directing by developing their practical skills and knowledge through safe, educational and socially acceptable involvement in shooting activities.  Youth exposure is not only key to the development of safe and responsible firearm handling but is vital in preventing accidents.  Please also tell them this program not only promotes the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship, and ethical behavior, but it often brings awareness and understanding of Arizona’s natural resources while complementing and enhancing the impact of existing safety and hunter education programs.
