Learning to use a gun is serious business

By Jeanne LeFlore Staff Writer

McALESTER ó Exhilarating

Thatís the word I would use to describe my first experience a using gun after taking a firearms safety and training class recently.

I have been a gun owner for two years, it was a gift from my husband and to be honest, I was afraid to even touch the gun at first. A fear I over came over time.

But after two years, I knew it was time I learned to carry and to use it. So I took a class.

With the recently enacted Open Carry Law taking affect on Nov. 1, Oklahoma residents a Self Defense Act license can openly carry their firearms in most public places. But before a loaded weapon can be carried, a special license must be obtained.

SNIP (Long description of class)

Overall the class was a great learning experience. I canít wait to get my license and carry my loaded weapon. And I will never forget that firing a deadly weapon is serious business.


Outstanding. She is a rare creature - a reporter who actually investigates the topic of guns instead of blindly repeating Brady & VPC lies.

I hope she will never need to gun for anything but target practice, but if she does need it - she will have it.
