Gun law seminar offered locally
Workshop scheduled for Saturday

Gun enthusiasts or those who may be considering owning a firearm may want to sign up for an upcoming gun law seminar to be held in Statesboro.

The U.S. Law Shield gun law workshop is scheduled for September 17, from  1 to 3 p.m. at Statesboro Martial Arts on Buckhead Drive.

“Gun laws are soaring across the country,” said Jamie Portillo, digital marketing coordinator with  

Texas & U.S. Law Shield, which is partnering with Statesboro Martial Arts to host the seminar.

“A new Pew Research Center poll shows that 44 percent of all households now own a gun,” she said.

The seminar will offer “face to face time between expert lawyers, firearms instructors” and other experts.

The course will cover basic firearms laws including the Castle Doctrine, Stand Your Ground and Make My Day laws, how to interact w/police; the law of search and seizure, gun owners’ liability under civil laws, and current events and topics in the news, she said.

All participants will receive the U.S. Law Shield publication “When Can I Legally Shoot? Knowing the Law of Deadly Force,” valued at $9.95, included in the course.

The cost is $5 for U.S. Law Shield members; $10 for non-members.
