BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY: Weekend session offers lesson in gun safety



Johnson said the lawmen added an extra element to the seminar and that he was appreciative they shared their expertise. 

“They did a great job,” Johnson said of the lawmen who took questions from audience. “I can't thank them enough.”

Tim Cook, of Jeffersonville, attended the seminar with his three boys, ages 7, 8 and 10.

“There no such thing as gun control — it's gun education,” he said. “We have three smaller boys, so we wanted them to be educated as soon as possible.”

Cook said the seminar provided useful information, but that he also takes steps at his home to promote gun safety.

“We have given the boys safety [information] about the guns we have in the house just so that they see what they are and they are not as curious if they already know what it is.”

Clark County resident Harvey Gruenwald said he owns firearms for personal defense and said he came to the seminar because he feels the more you know about gun safety, the better.

“Learning is always something valuable,” he said. “You can always pick up something.”
