WLBZ, WABI Report on Weapon Safety Offered by UMaine Student Veterans

WLBZ (Channel 2) and WABI (Channel 5) reported on the Family Weapon Safety and Range Day held at the Orrington Rod and Gun Club and organized by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the University of Maine student veterans group. Families were invited to learn the proper way to handle different types of firearms and how to keep guns safe in the household. “Familiarization is key,” Christopher Phinney, VFW senior vice commander and treasurer of the UMaine group, told WLBZ. “If people are familiar with the weapons — how they work, how the safeties work — then if they come across the weapon in any situation, they can understand how to operate it or leave it alone safely.”
