ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany workshop gave citizens a chance to arm themselves with information before they bear arms.

Albany State University's Police Department held the session on campus.

Attendees were informed by legal and public safety experts on how to handle a weapon, when to shoot, and the consequences of pulling the trigger.

Judge Nancy Stephenson and District Attorney Greg Edwards also took time to talk to the crowd.

"It's our second workshop, we did one last year it was well attended and a lot of people started asking about it. I put that as part of my project for the beginning of this year to let people know the changes in the law," Said Chief Roberson Brown, Albany State Police Department.

The Department plans on having a class in the near future for gun owners. At Saturday's workshop more than one hundred gun locks were handed out.
