Chamber EBR Gun Training Class
Trained, Well-Armed Citizenry Best Way
To Fight BR Crime, Chamber EBR Says
BATON ROUGE — The Chamber of Commerce of East Baton Rouge has completed another Gun Safety Course at the Baker Range in Baker, and 24 more local residents are better qualified to use their firearms to defend themselves.
The Chamber EBR offers the course periodically throughout the year free of charge. Former Sheriff Greg Phares, Gordon Hutchinson, and other qualified firearms instructors donate their time.
Phares said the crime problem and citizens’ concern about gun control are driving more and more people to purchase firearms and seek training.
The Chamber EBR’s course is open to any resident of the parish, but it especially urges women to participate. Phares said firearms are the great equalizer that allows females to be able to live on their own and come and go without having to rely on a man for protection, as they have throughout history.
The Chamber EBR is composed of small business owners. For information, go to www.ChamberEBR.com or email chairman Woody Jenkins at email@example.com.
