RTC is dedicated to teaching firearm safety and self defense as well as advocating our Constitutional Rights. Particularly the 2nd Amendment. In the wake of the recent school shooting in Florida, it is obvious to us that our government is not able to protect our children. Since every single stop gap that has been put into place to prevent this FAILED MISERABLY, this is even more obvious than ever. We as citizens need to take charge of this on our own. While they waste time concentrating on “Gun Control” and resolving nothing, our children are still “Soft Targets”.  We at RTC are confident that whatever legislature they conjure up will do little to prevent this type of atrocity from happening again. With that said, we have decided to make our own contribution in an effort the make our children safer.  If (or when) a decision is made that will allow some sort of armed personnel in our schools, we would like to support this cause. RTC will now offer our “Basic Pistol Safety Course” FREE to any CT educator or school employee. We will reserve 2 seats per class for these students up to the week before the scheduled class. The seats will be made available to anyone at that point in time. We know that this is not all the training they will need but they will definitely have to start with this before any other training is given. Ultimately, we hope other instructors in CT and eventually other states, will follow suit (if they haven’t already).
