Since the outbreak of COVID-19, historic numbers of people have purchased firearms, with unprecedented numbers of first-time buyers and inexperienced firearms owners.
In response, Safer Homes, Suicide Aware is launching a firearms safety webinar to address the training needs of first-time buyers and others who are new to firearms ownership. This course, integrating material developed with input from suicide prevention experts, clinical psychiatrists, and Seattle Children’s Hospital, provides a thorough and compelling overview of firearms safety. The presenters are staff members who hold a variety of professional certifications as firearms instructors and have extensive backgrounds in both the armed forces of the United States and private-sector marksmanship training.
This course is open to all, but is particularly relevant for new or inexperienced firearms owners, those who are returning to firearms ownership after a long absence, or anyone else who wishes to attend a refresher course.
