March 17, 2021 (Moscow, Idaho) —
The Moscow Police Department is providing a firearms safety course for individuals involved in the accidental discharge of a weapon within Moscow's city limits. This course is not open to the public.
A certified firearms instructor will join Moscow Police Officer Kris Bragg in teaching the course. The three-hour class will teach proper safety protocols and gun handling and operation techniques for handling a firearm, including proper unloading, loading, cleaning, carrying techniques, and City of Moscow and State of Idaho firearm laws. Successful completion of the course will provide individuals the opportunity to have a previous accidental discharge of weapon charge reduced or dismissed. Upon completion, individuals will be required to show their proficiency in handling a firearm and pass a written exam covering the course topics. Each case will be reviewed by the City of Moscow's Legal Department to determine eligibility.
For more information, please contact the Moscow Police Department at 208-883-7054.
