Home firearms safety workshop

Do you have firearms in the house? Is everyone in the household comfortable and familiar with the safe handling of firearms? Do your children know what to do if they find a gun? Are firearms stored safely and correctly or is it simply left to dad?
   Firearms and a safe household are a family affair.
   Phil Murray and other certified National Rifle Association (NRA) instructors will conduct a free four-hour course in home firearms safety at the Woodinville Library on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
   The workshop, intended for the entire family, uses presentations, demonstrations and practical exercises to teach safe handling, storage and gun safety habit in the home.
   Participants will also receive additional information and safety checklists for evaluating their own homes.
   Participants 12 and older who complete the workshop will receive a NRA Home Firearms Safety Certificate.
   The workshop is sponsored by the Woodinville Library, the Northwest NRA Instructors Groups, the Second Amendment Foundation, the Gun Owners Action League and Project Homesafe.
   Space in the workshop is limited.
   For more information and registration, contact the Woodinville Library, (425) 788-0733.
   The library is located at 17105 Avondale Rd NE, near Cottage Lake.
