Gun safety, 'personal protection in the home' to be taught soon
Handgun safety programs sponsored by the National Rifle Association (NRA) will be held March 12 and 27, April 23 and May 7 at the shooters' pistol range in New Milford.
The one-day program will offer knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for using or owning a handgun.
A national written examination and live-fire range qualification will be conducted.
Program completion is a requirement for application for a state permit in Connecticut and most other states.
The NRA will also offer "Personal Protection In The Home" courses May 14 and July 23 featuring a talk on criminal and liability law by attorney Thomas Allingham.
