Register for Tuesday’s Gun Safety Seminar

gun

There are many reasons citizens own firearms. Those reasons vary from individual to individual. Some may own them for the purpose of home or self defense while others may hunt, participate in organized sport shooting events or merely enjoy recreational shooting. Regardless of an individual’s reason for owning a firearm, the fact remains that education in gun safety is critical.

Gun ownership is a great responsibility that falls on the shoulders of all of those who choose to own a firearm either in their home or place of business. The Cobb County Police Department in partnership with Cobb County School District Department of Public Safety will be hosting a “Gun Safety Seminar” at Lassiter High School.
In this seminar, you will learn about gun safety and the updated Georgia carry laws. Guest speaker will be Sgt. Wayne Delk, Cobb County Police Department Weapons Training Unit. Please plan to attend this informative seminar which will be held on October 21st, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the Lassiter High School auditorium. Attendance will be free of charge but will have limited seating. Please R.S.V.P Sgt. Craig Dong at craig.dong@cobbcounty.org or call 770-499-3971 to reserve your seats.

Person making threats against Lassiter High School arrested in New York

A 21-year-old man who once attended East Cobb’s Lassiter High School was arrested in New York on Saturday morning after current Lassiter students reported a threatening video he made and posted on Facebook to police.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Bridger Carreau, now 21, was arrested in Elmsford, NY and is now awaiting extradition to Cobb County on a felony charge of making terroristic threats. Police discovered several airsoft guns in Carreau’s home, the AJC says.

According to the Marietta Daily Journal, Carreau posted the video on Thursday of last week. He allegedly wore tactical vest and displayed a knife and various firearms. He then allegedly mentioned ”Lassiter goons” and then threatened to “go full deer hunter” between Oct. 22-27. Students who saw the alleged video on Carreau’s Facebook page felt threatened by it and contacted school administrators, who reached out to law enforcement.

Lassiter’s principal Chris Richie sent a letter home with students on Monday which provided parents and guardians with information regarding Carreau’s video.
