NRA Launches Online Gun Safety Courses for New Shooters

NRA Online Training
In response to a growing number of new gun owners in America, the NRA is offering online safety courses.

Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- In response to the growing number of first-time gun buyers during the coronavirus outbreak, the National Rifle Association's Education & Training Division is pleased to announce the launch of four new online gun safety courses.

“These courses will provide an option for first-time gun owners who don't have the ability to take an NRA certified instructor-led class at their local shooting range at this time,” said Joe DeBergalis, executive director of NRA General Operations. “While there is no replacement for in-person, instructor-led training, our new online classes do provide the basics of firearm safety training for those self-isolating at home.”

Those courses include:

  • Gun Safety Seminar
  • NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course – Distance Learning
  • NRA Basic Rifle Shooting Course – Distance Learning
  • NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home Course – Distance Learning

Each course, lasting from one to eight hours, is available at NRAInstructors.org.

Though range time is part of some of the classes (Basics of Pistol Shooting – Distance Learning & Personal Protection in the Home – Distance Learning), there is still a wealth of knowledge available in every online section.

“The NRA recommends that all new gun owners seek professional training at the range, but that doesn't mean you can't get a head start on learning the basics of firearm safety at home. New gun owners, old gun owners, it doesn't really matter. Taking one of these classes moderated by a certified NRA instructor, can only make you safer and that's our primary goal,” DeBergalis added. ​

The NRA also offers the award-winning gun accident prevention Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program (eddieeagle.nra.org) nationwide and the NRA Hunters Education program (NRA.yourlearningportal.com) in selected states to help those safeguard their home and to be safe and responsible when they go afield.

While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the NRA has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world.  Visit: www.nra.org

Another LaPierre scheme to dupe “New Shooters” into sending him money.

LaPierre is spending millions of dollars a month from membership funds not to defend the NRA, but rather to pay for his own personal legal defense.

Covid-19 is not responsible for the NRA’s current financial crisis. The LaPierre Virus is the untreated infection that’s been sucking the financial lifeblood out of the NRA for decades.

In most cases, when something is “offered” and they don’t give you the price there is a good reason for not including it. Looks like LaPierre is taking advantage of the so-called “crisis” to make some more money for himself while appearing to provide a needed service.

The only way to save the organization is to refocus on the original mission statement and stick to it. Leave the fighting to the organizations like 2AF, GOA and the state groups like Arizona Citizens defense League. A clean division between education/recreation and political advocacy and litigation keeps both sides focused on winning the war for natural rights but from different avenues of approach. In the end this will be a good thing for NRA. As a kid I viewed the NRA as a place to learn the shooting sports and to participate. Before the advent of the Progressive New… Read more »

If you’re making $2M you can afford a cut. It would have been better to keep the 60 and lose the $2M crook; imagine the money alone that would have been saved.

Hopefully this will come across better than Negotiating Rights Away’s failed on line instructors training did.
Wonder if they will push their wine club at the end of each session as Wayne La Pew Pews suits have to be paid for one way or another and then there is his girlfriends make overs.

THIS IS GREAT !!!!!! The NRA can start teaching gun safety to the geriatric I just saw sporting a bumper sticker that said , and I quote “It takes a special kind of stup[id to think criminals will obey gun laws” No Cletus. It takes a special kind of stupid to deny that gun safety laws work, which they do or that gun safety means banning all guns. Both claims are the fraud and ignorance spouted by those opposed to common sense gun safety laws . Gun safety laws work. And clearly, in a nation that has 130 to 150… Read more »

In who’s warped Leftard mind, perhaps you can post evidence of all the successes of unConstitutional gun control, just one more infringements will surely fix the previous failures.

There is a huge difference between inner city Chicago and the rest of America. Unreasonable impediments to the exercise of Constitutionally enumerated natural rights are what we call…………….. wait for it………………….Jim Crow laws. Law abiding gun owners are the new negro. They are the new vilified class. Progressives of all ilks see self-reliance in any form as a challenge to state authority and ideological hegemony. Eliminating that threat, the threat of the people is the real intent of your new brand of Jim Crow.

@ ochwill, Do you have a link we can use to verify your statement? “Gun safety laws have been proven over and over to work”.
We’ve seen a lot of “New” gun buyers though, here’s a link.

Interesting that you actually ignore what the bumper sticker said in trying to down play it.
Can you prove anything you said??

How about you prove that your gun safety laws stop criminals.
Just prove that one part, that any law works perfectly 100% of the time.
You can not and you know it.
