    They were children, not older teens.  They wore little school uniforms, short shorts, some had their hair in braids.  They were cheerful, enjoying their field trip, having a picnic outside on the grounds.  It looked like a group of 6th graders to me, and I was speechless to look at them.  Maybe they weren't loaded rifles, just part of their uniforms.  I had just never seen anything like it.  And I still remember it 30+ years later.

      find out about this, too.  Sounds completely bizarre, though.  Maybe it was some kind of bizarro militaristic youth group outing or something?  I cannot believe the guns were loaded.  Sheesh.
