SWAT "visits" JROTC practice.

Someone called police to the Richwoods High School, Peoria, Illinois, to report a gun-toting student entering the facility. A special response team stormed the building, firearms at the ready, only to find ... a Junior ROTC air-gun team in the gym! "According to [School] District 150, members of the JROTC were practicing marksmanship, with parental consent and under their instructor's guidance," the Peoria Journal-Star notes, and a team member brought her air rifle from home to practice, during Spring Break. Says Assistant Police Chief Phil Korem, "We'll be having a conversation with District 150."
