New Mexico Firearms Education
This section of our web site offers basic firearm education; it is not meant to be, nor is it, a firearms course.
Students and interested persons who are researching firearm safety and “Best Practices” will find the information
in this section they are seeking--keep in mind, this section is not a substitution for a firearms course!

other Idaho Gun Laws

Using Your Firearm for Self-Defense
This section of our education series addresses commonly debated positions or misunderstood topics
related to gun ownership.
WARNING: These are very pro-gun, second-amendment opinions related to every citizens right to carry
and protect themselves with a firearm.
If an unarmed citizen feels safer waiting for the police to arrive, as their children, family, and self are
under attack, brutally raped or murdered--we honor and respect their position.
By the same standard, if an armed citizen chooses to include a firearm as part of their personal self-
defense plan, we ask you respect their opinion as well.
