The adults hung a target in the tree about 5 ft up and were shooting it with the rifle. I couldn't believe what i was seeing the kids were shooting in the air & so were the adults.

Probably would have been waste of time to try to educate them, though maybe it was worth a shot.....
The sad thing is one of those kids may hurt someone or themselves because they obviously are not being taught gun safety.
If I were to see that at our range (I'm a member of the Sportsmen's Club) I certainly would let them know (as nicely as possible) of the error of their ways. If they gave any guff, I'd see to it that they were banned.
