A Different Kind Of Political Outreach 2

Its not just Hamilton County, Ohio (Cincinnati) republicans who are holding CCW classes. Licking County (east Central Ohio) republicans are doing the same.

It's a two-day deal -- the best way to both teach and learn CCW. Personally, I cannot stand the one-day classes. As an NRA instructor, I think it is unfair to ask a student to absorb all that material in a single day (12 hours classroom and range), especially if they are a newbie. But I digress . . .

The two-day class, sponsored by the Licking County Republican Patriot's Club, is set for June 28-29. The first day's class, June 28, will take place above Licking County GOP headquarters in Newark from 8 am to 6:30 pm. The balance of the class will take place at a private outdoor range in nearby Alexandria on June 29.

I strongly agree that the 1-day format is lousy for newbies. Perhaps those should be restricted to those with significant experience with firearms -- maybe a qualifying test in order to take it in one day?

Having said that, it was SO convenient to do the one-day, I couldn't pass it up. I've been shooting for 20 years, and am a lawyer, so there wasn't THAT much to absorb (by the way, it was a super high quality class - very impressed). Shout out: Blackwing Shooting Center
