Gun ownership is on the rise, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation , and gun sales in California and elsewhere in the United States rose before the Obama administration took over.
Are you among the newly armed?
If so, you might consider attending any of a series of “First Shots” live-fire safety and training courses being offered Saturday at Angeles Shooting Ranges  in Lake View Terrace, and Burro Canyon Shooting Park  in Azusa.
The events, sponsored by the NSSF, are scheduled for 8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Angeles, and at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. at Burro. An additional course is scheduled at 8 a.m. Sunday at the Orange County Indoor Shooting Range  in Brea.
