Gunsite Academy Inc., the Nation’s oldest privately owned and operated civilian firearms training academy, is saddened and angered by the violence in our schools.
Our mission is “. . . to provide good people with the skills by which they may conduct themselves as responsible citizens of a free Republic.” We recognize that the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Proper training is crucial to achieve the objective of keeping our young people safe in their schools. It is crucial that we recognize that local leaders must be the impetus of changes in the safety and security policies in our local schools.
To further positive changes of the safety and security in our Republic’s schools, Gunsite will offer a free five (5) day 250 Pistol Course (tuition) at our northern Arizona training facility to School Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, and School Board Presidents.
Our hope is that we educate these policy makers and help them formulate programs within their schools to train and arm their teachers to better protect our youth.
