The Village Lansing and The Advocates to educate youth with the proven tactics of education versus abstinence. We believe that when young people are educated on the privilege of their second amendment rights, firearms safety, responsible gun ownership and behavior, and conflict resolution, the likelihood they will use them inappropriately greatly diminishes.
The 2a21 Program offers Free CPL certification for those 21 and older and aims to curb the school to prison pipeline. Many young people are being charged with CCW as their only charge, meaning their only actual crime was not having a license to carry their legal firearm, and in turn are now caught up in the judicial system. Which we know further perpetuates breaking the law.
We also teach the “Stop the Bleed” which certifies all who are in this class to be their own first responders and be able to pack and bandage a gunshot wound. This is very important as gunshot wounds can become increasingly more deadly given the time it takes for emergency services to respond.
