On Sunday, a class was held in Robbinsdale called "Black Boys With Guns." It's a class aimed at breaking social stigma.
The course was created to give youth the opportunity to practice their firearm skills while also discussing gun-involved trauma that may have happened to them or someone they love. It's the second time organizers with "Strong Arm Protection" have lead a program of this kind.
The team behind this program believes that educating young black youth will help curb gun violence in the greater Minnesota Community.
This month, more than a dozen minority boys between 12-19 years old went to this range not only to discuss their roles with firearms but also to have a safe space to practice firearms skill.
