In the wake of the nationwide debate over gun violence, here’s a chance to learn how to properly handle guns. The Etowah County Sheriff’s Department is joining with Gadsden State Community College to offer free civilian firearms training. The training sessions will involve dummy firearms, not actual weapons. They will take place each Tuesday night in February from 6 to 8 PM in the Joe Ford Center on Gadsden State’s East Broad campus. You can get more information or pre-register by contacting Natalie Barton at the Etowah County Sheriff’s Department.
