Self Defense in the Home is an outgrowth of Liberty’s concealed carry classes.  Instead of focusing on the broad concept of carrying a concealed carry firearm while an individual is out in the public, this class focuses on measures a citizen might take while defending themselves and their families within the confines of their home.  We will cover a number of issues such as ethical considerations, mental preparation, how the layout of your home might influence your choices, and firearms safety. General Firearms Safety is a course prerequisite.
