"I am a Certified NRA Instructor, and a NRA Range Safety Officer. I am ex-military and served During Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. I also was a range safety officer teaching range safety and marksmanship to U.S. Army basic trainees at Fort Jackson SC I have been teaching people how to safely handle and shoot pistols and Rifles for over 25 years. I have taught students from all different backgrounds including future police officers, U.S. Army basic trainees, house wives, business professionals, and even grandmothers. I teach the Basic Pistol Permit Course required by the State of Connecticut. This gun class is the first step in obtaining your gun permit.

My goal is for you to leave this class with the knowledge and understanding of firearms so that you may enjoy the sport safely.

did you train Lanza?

Well, Eb Swanson... THAT was an ignorant statement. It turns out that the actual shooter was 20 years old and would not have been allowed to even apply for a pistol course. http://newtown.patch.com/articles/ryan-lanza-wrongly-named-as-mass-murderer-left-to-grieve-21958569

Do the horrific events that occurred today impact your views regarding the issuance of firearms to civilians?

I am all for 2A and concealed carry (have my own permit) but perhaps now isn't the best time for a CCW class? I think it would be better to postpone it a for a week or so out of respect for the victims.

Thank you, Tim. My thoughts exactly.

Six adults at the Sandy Hook School might be alive instead of dead if they had had a gun with them. I believe in background checks for guns permits, no gun permits issued on same day ( because of heat of the moment marital disputes and suicidal thoughts ), concealed carry laws, and mandatory gun training courses which includes ways to safely store guns and the state laws regarding when a person is allowed to shoot to defend themselves or others. Peace to Newtown, Ct.

I appreciate your perspective, Sylvia, however the adults at the school also could have been "outgunned". I don't know anyone that wants to take away pistol ownership or instruction. It is the automatic weapons and large clips that gotta go, along with what you suggested re: background checks and loopholes for gun shows,etcs. I would add mental health check with primary care physician and regulations re: training. Compare weapon ownership to driving an automobile, or at the very least, purchasing cold medicine with phenedryne in it. This would not be difficult to implement. Peace and love to Newtown. Still in thoughts and prayers.
