NRA Certified

Posted on the 10 June 2011 by Mikeb302000
Meet an NRA certified Safety Instructor:
Police say a two-year-old found a loaded .45 caliber pistol under a bed. He accidentally shot his six-year-old stepsister Emily Lavender in the chest and killed her, authorities said.Investigators found 53 guns after searching the home.People who know the homeowner say he was an NRA certified firearms instructor and a trainer for a Valley Sea Cadet program.
Do you realize it's harder to become a barber or a driving instructor than to become an NRA certified instructor?  It's true.
Plus, barbers and driving instructors are routinely monitored and have to periodically renew their licenses.  An NRA certified instructor isn't monitored and doesn't have to renew anything.
Nobody ever fails any NRA course and course content and conduct isn't standardized.
