Class teaches basic gun shot first aid

It’s a sad reality that we’re training bystanders how to treat gun shot wounds. But, as they say, it is what it is and it’ll certainly save lives. With the rash of mass shootings in the US, all of us should know basic gun shot first aid.

A bullet in the foot that could’ve been so much worse…

Even DEA “expert" gun handlers sometimes shoot themselves. Sorry for the poor video quality, but this video never gets old and is worth it.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for teens

I’m a believer in the Second Amendment, but also in the truth. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for teens (after accidents). Firearms in the home increase teen suicide risk.

No one knows exactly how many guns are owned by Americans

What we do know is that it’s in the hundreds of millions! Teens (and the rest of us) should be mindful of this as they go about their daily lives.
