McHenry Defends Hunting and Archery Programs for Students

WASHINGTON - Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement after joining his colleagues to demand reversal of a Department of Education policy that withholds Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) funds from hunting and archery education programs nationwide.

“Hunting education and archery programs in our schools are vital to teaching proper firearm safety and providing opportunity for young people to pursue their passions. This egregious overreach from President Biden and Secretary Cardona is this administration's latest attack on our Second Amendment rights, this time impacting students in the Tenth District. The administration must reverse this harmful policy immediately."
