Teenage Republicans learn about gun safety, Second Amendment

May 2, 2021

Members of the Sussex Teenage Republicans, aka STARS, met April 17 at the Bridgeville Rifle & Pistol Club. The first item on the agenda was a lesson by Jeff Hague, Delaware State Sportsmen’s Association president, about the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the current Delaware and federal legislative efforts to curb gun ownership.

After receiving basic firearms safety instruction from Erin Chronister of The Well-Armed Woman - Southern DE Chapter, STARS members went to the range and received hands-on training with various pistols and rifles. Finally, each member experienced the International Defensive Pistol Associate course with multiple targets, positions and live ammunition.

The STARS are looking forward to other opportunities to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Membership in the Sussex TeenAge Republicans is open to teens between the ages of 12 and 19. For more information, go to
