Gun safety class offered March 19 at Rindge Recreation Department

A free gun safety class and demonstration will be held at the Rindge Recreation Department on Tuesday, March 19, at 7 p.m.

The class will offer instruction in the proper handling and storage of firearms and is co-sponsored by the Rindge Police Department and Rindge Crime Watch.

In the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings and a significant rise in the applications for pistol permits, this class seems timely.

The civilian instructor Don Huntington of Rindge is certified as a Hunter Safety Instructor through NH Fish & Game. Fish & Game Officer William Boudreau will be present for the training, and can answer any questions regarding laws.

Tye Taylor of American Weapon Systems of Rindge is a licensed firearms dealer and he will also be present to answer any questions about the laws involved with purchases and background check requirements of gun dealers before they can sell.

Gun locks will be handed out free of charge to the attendees. One-hundred locks were purchased from Walmart of Rindge at their cost ($3.00 each) and were paid for through donation, $100 from the Rindge Women’s Club, $100 from the Rindge Police Association and $100 from Rindge Crime Watch.

The class is scheduled for two hours. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend.
