Firearms seminar to be held at Ag-Center

As the sale of firearms continues to grow, many people who are unfamiliar with their legal rights regarding firearms are now gun owners.
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8433 is attempting to educate local residents about gun laws and the rights of gun owners at an upcoming event.
Post 8433, in cooperation with U.S. Law Shield, will host a gun seminar Thursday, Sept. 22, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Grady County Agri-Center, 65 11th Ave. N.E.
U.S. Law Shield is partnering with VFW posts across Georgia to host gun law seminars that provide face-to-face time between experienced lawyers, firearms instructors and experts in every area of legally owning and carrying firearms.
According to seminar sponsors, a Pew Research Center poll indicates that 44 percent of all households now own a gun.
Every seminar features experienced attorneys and law enforcement professionals who explain basic firearms laws every gun owner should know, such as the Castle Doctrine, Stand Your Ground and Make My Day laws, what to expect when law enforcement arrives, the law of Search and Seizure, gun owners’ liability under civil laws, as well as addressing current events and topics in the news.
Participants will receive a free copy of “When Can I Legally Shoot? Knowing The Law of Deadly Force,” a U.S. Law Shield publication. This publication explains the ins-and-outs of the law of the deadly force.
For those interested, on-line registration is encouraged in order to have enough handouts on hand. Light refreshments will also be served.
For more information, contact Doug Taylor of VFW Post 8433 at (229) 377-8790.
Admission is $10 per person and for members of U.S. Law Shield it is $5. To register, visit and select VFW Post 8433 when prompted
