The Cumming Police Department in Georgia announced plans to hold a free firearms safety training class designed specifically for new gun owners.
According to the Forsyth County News, this is the third time that police will be offering the class. It is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Castleberry Building in Cumming.
“It’s part of the NRA curriculum,” Lt. Bryan Zimbardi said. “It’s going to be a basic class on gun laws and gun safety and basically introducing new shooters or new gun owners to the local laws and safety precautions associated with ownership.”
As the County News reports, the class will consist of a presentation on changes in gun laws and tips on how to keep guns safe. No actual shooting or range training will take place.
“It’s a conglomeration of several things, one of which obviously is the laws, the concealed carry laws and those types of things, as well as the introductory safety things like where to buy safes, where to buy gun locks, where to keep them to keep them away from the kids,” Zimbardi said.
Attendance for this seminar is limited to 75 people, but there are still a few spots left. To register, click here.
