Baton Rouge gun range offers free concealed carry classes for women, victims of domestic abuse

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A local gun range is now offering free concealed carry classes for women and victims of domestic violence.

On June 26, Brenda Morris was allegedly murdered by her husband, Sean Morris. The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office said he shot and killed Brenda in their home after a fight. District Manager of Precision Firearms and Indoor Range Christopher Woosley said domestic violence is increasing statewide.

“Louisiana is ranked among the top states for domestic violence,” said Woosley. “There are people and resources they can contact that can help them get out of a bad situation.”

Woosley also said to bring a police report or restraining order to sign up for the class. He said it’s offered throughout the year.

The constitutional carry class is held from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Precision Firearms & Indoor Range. It’s a 2-hour class that discusses gun laws related to operating and owning a weapon during self-defense.

The concealed carry class is a 9-hour class. It discusses more fundamentals about self-defense. After completing the class each individual will receive a certificate.

“Anything that shows us you’ve been a victim of these things, and we’ll sign you up for the class free of charge,” said Woosley. “I want them to know it’s not their fault. I want them to know that if they’re being victimized by stalking, they need to document every single contact.”

He said victims of abuse are not alone.
