NY Gun Range Opens To Teach New Gun Owners

From The Truth About Guns:

One of those businesses that found itself serving scores of people new to gun ownership is the Pioneer Shooting Center in Mount Vernon, New York. The store and range are owned by Michael and Denine Timlin and family matriarch Rita Timlin. Being so close to New York City, they found themselves selling guns to a lot of people who had never fired a gun before and were clamoring for basic safety and training information.

Online Safety Courses Offered By NRA

From Bearing Arms:

While we don’t know how much firearm education these folks might have previously gotten–were they military or even Boy Scouts?–we’re all better off assuming that most of those buying the guns have no idea what they’re doing with them, that they haven’t been taught how to use them safely.

That means they need to be trained.

Woman Can’t Get Over Preconceived Ideas About Guns

From Narratively:

For me, there is no way to recognize the possibility of good when it comes to owning a weapon. I can only see the bad, what makes me fearful. And just like my father, until I can control both the weapon and the power, I’ll refrain from trying to harness either of them, willing to master the skill without actually using it.

How To Build A First Aid Kit

From Recoil:

Deciding what to carry in a medical kit is highly dependent on anticipating the injuries and illnesses you may encounter in a given situation. It’s also dependent on the space available for your gear. After all, the space available when partaking in outdoor activities off the beaten path can be quite limited. You must eliminate unnecessary items so that you can carry other essentials. If you carry a gunshot trauma kit on your person or in a range bag, it’s even more essential that the contents remain compact and free of clutter from unnecessary items.

Virginia Wants To Make Firearms/Martial Arts Training Illegal

From The Captain’s Journal:

This is a remarkable development.  One refreshing thing is that the masks have all come off now.  With control of the Senate, House and Governor’s mansion, the controllers want you to know where they stand and are willing to say so out loud and in the clearest possible terms.

RI State Police Colonel Says It’s Too Easy To Get CHL

From Bearing Arms:

“There’s no scenario-based training, no low-light level training, no storage of firearms training, no, uh, so uh, I think there are holes in the concealed carry permitting system.”
