LOOKOUT - Many people wouldn't think of a fundraiser when it comes to guns but on Sunday, getting your concealed weapon permit means funding a local youth football association.
New River Tactical held a concealed weapon permit class at the Nuttall Middle School gymnasium to help fund the New River Patriots Youth Football Association, Inc. Co-owner of New River Tactical, Nick Mooney instructs people on the rules and guidelines to owning a gun. He says funding the football association from these classes is necessary to keep the kids on the field.
"We just purchased a scoreboard last week that we had to have and it was $3,000 and we had to make that up some how, so it's just one of those things that we could not function without donations from the community or help from the parents in those communities, local businesses or anything like that," said Mooney.
The class is $50 a person to complete.
