A seminar - hosted by the School of Weapons Safety, Neosho, and provided by US LawShield will be held from 3-5:30 p.m. Sunday, March 18, at the Civic, 109 W. Main St., Neosho.

"I have concerns, I love the fact that we are a permitless (carry) state now, I wish that we were a Constitutional carry state," said Bill Doubek owner School of Weapons Safety. "At the same time, it scares me to death that people are not getting the education that they got when they were requited to have a permit. I think that if people want to be responsible gun owners, they are going to want to be educated. Now how is that going to happen, person such as myself, to teach these classes, provides opportunities for people to come and learn."

The seminar is "Understanding Missouri's Permitless Carry" and is open to anyone and everyone, according to Doubek. Entrance fee at the door is $5 for members of US LawShield.

"That organization in itself that supports gun education in all kinds of levels," he said. "It also provides insurance and lawyers for people who are gun owners."

Topics to be discussed are:

• Use of deadly force and stand your ground laws

• Where you can legally carry

• How to deal with law enforcement

As far as what it means to be a "permitless carry," Doubek said, "they do not need a permit to carry a firearm - concealed or open - anywhere in Missouri anymore. That doesn't mean that you can go 14 miles west (to Oklahoma) or 34 miles south (to Arkansas) without, that is a different state with different laws."

Doubek said he is grateful for representatives from US LawShield on coming Sunday.

"They (US LawShield) are so well informed, so creditable, so good, let's go with the pros, let's go with the professionals," he said. "It (seminar) is worth it, it is a good thing."
