The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office announced on Tuesday a free program being offered to residents aimed at promoting firearm education and safety.

During a news conference, Sheriff Chad Chronister talked about the program created in collaboration with Shooters World.

” Gun safety can only be accomplished by being properly trained,” the sheriff said.

The training program was conceived due to the permitless carry law recently passed in Sunshine State that will take effect on July 1.

While this is a significant change in Florida law, Chronister reminded the community that the lawful gun owner is still responsible for safely handling and storing the firearm.

The sheriff says the agency is committing $50,000 to provide free training for more than 650 people in Hillsborough County through a partnership with the gun shop.

“In addition to the free training, we will also be committing an additional $25,000 to provide trigger locks and gun vaults to prevent anyone from having access to a firearm,” Chronister explains.

The funding for the training classes, along with the trigger locks and gun vaults, comes from the Law Enforcement Trust Fund – which is money seized from criminal activity.

According to Chronister, the training classes will teach owners about firearms storage and handling, where it is permissible to carry concealed, and locations where it is prohibited from carrying a concealed weapon.

Participants will also learn how to react in a self-defense situation and when using deadly force is appropriate.

“Our objective is simple. We want anyone who plans to own and carry a firearm concealed under the new legislation to be prepared,” the sheriff said. “Our goal is to do everything we can to keep our community safe, and this initiative is another step in accomplishing that goal.”

Hillsborough County residents who want to participate in the training only need a valid government ID to sign up at ShootersWorld.com. When checking out, enter the code “teamHCSO.”
