Free classes for Americans to protect themselves. That's gotta cause cases of explosive diarrhea in anti-Liberty bastions around the State of Ohio. Thing is, the idea will get around and soon we'll see free CCW classes in other States. If it's one thing I love, it's seeing Those Who Abhor Individual Liberty going insane when everyday Americans stand up and say "I will not be a victim!"
Several rural Sheriffs here offer free or discounted classes, and even have a few indoor shooting ranges to enjoy!
It's especially nice for female shooters, especially those new to firearms, as they do ladies night sessions with female staff to train safety and competency in a non male environment!
Madera county in CA has been doing this for years. The current and previous Sheriff said If anyone asks "What are you doing about gun safety" They can point to their staff giving safety training to any one that wants it! They gear it to getting a CCW, and actively encourage Senior Citizens to carry.There is a very high number of Seniors here that do carry. DR
