Refuse to be a Victim Instructor to donate class proceeds to Buckeye Firearms

By Jim Irvine

Recently, several Buckeye Firearms Association volunteers have become Refuse To Be A Victim® instructors.

Refuse To Be A Victim® is an NRA course, but it is a personal safety course, not a firearms course. The only thing better than having a firearm when you need it to defend your life, is avoiding the life threatening event in the first place. That is the purpose of this class. It’s a good course for anyone, without regard to your feelings about guns.

Chris Chumita is teaching a course on February 11th, in Geauga County. If you are interested, please contact him at [email protected]. We thank Chris for his intentions to donate all proceeds from this course to the Buckeye Firearms Association.

This class is not about guns, martial arts or other self-defense training. It is about education, choices, and a mindset. Criminals profile for theirs victims. Their success is determined by picking the right person to victimize. Understanding what the criminal looks for will help you to discourage them from picking you. By making choices that make criminals pick someone else, you are refusing to be a victim.

The class will cover security ideas for the home, office, vehicle, and your personal security. We will also cover technological issues, travel issues and more.

Rather than telling you what you must to do be safe, this course discusses a variety of options for you to consider. There is no “one size fits all” approach that will work for everyone, and this class recognizes that. There are positives and negatives to most options. This class you help you better understand those various aspects. You will come away more informed so that you can better decide how to improve your safety.

While Chris’ class mentioned above will be co-ed, this course is also offered for women only.
