The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a Kids Handgun Safety and Awareness Seminar Saturday, June 6 for children ages 5-12.
There will be two classes offered this Saturday one from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and another from noon to 2 p.m.
Parents interested in registering their child can contact Jackie Smith at (913)715-5598. Registrations are limited to the first 30 registrants.
The course is designed to be a fun and high-energy experience that begins a strong and unwavering respect and knowledge of firearms safety. Firearms instructors from the Sheriff’s Office will teach participants the correct response to seeing unsecured firearms and the basic fundamentals of safe and proper firearm use.
The concepts will be reinforced throughout the class while playing games and other physical activities so the overall experience is fun and educational.
Parents are encouraged to actively observe the event so they continue to build on the knowledge and skills learned for a lifetime of safe and responsible gun ownership.
