The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Bearing Arms
On Christmas morning, a number of children will wake up to find their first gun, whether it be an air gun, a shotgun or a hunting rifle, nestled under the tree.
But it’s important these kids know that these gifts aren’t toys like that Nerf Blaster or Super Soaker they received the year before. That’s why Louisiana Sheriff Steve Prator is offering a free gun safety course for youngins this December, known as the “First Gun Course.”
The four-hour class, which will run from 8 a.m. until noon, is open to children ages 8 to 12. All kids must be accompanied by an adult for the entirety of the class.
Sheriff Prator will first go over basic gun safety. Then the children will then get the chance to try skeet shooting and firing at fixed targets, which were provided by the National Rifle Association Foundation.
