Learn the basics of safety from the National Rifle Association

Betty Ashby, an NRA Refuse to be a Victim Counselor in North Carolina, poses with students at a Rural Hall, North Carolina class Rural Hall, North Carolina - One of my favorite programs here at the National Rifle Association is Refuse To Be A Victim®. Why you ask? Because this safety program empowers our students to learn the basics of personal security with a few common sense every day fixes. Where to park your car, replacing the screws on your front door, safety on vacation and more are just a few of the tips that will come your way.

Those were some of the lessons learned by those who attended Betty Ashby's Refuse to be a Victim class a few weeks ago in Rural Hall, North Carolina. Apparently things went well.

"Betty was an excellent instructor," said one student. "I felt she gave us a real life impression of situations to be aware of and be prepared for. This class was an eye opening experience!"

Ashby held her class at the ProShots Indoor Range and Training facility in Rural Hall. A very active instructor, she tries to organize and run a few classes a year. She's also an alum of our The Refuse To Be A Victim® Online Instructor Development Workshop — a professionally delivered seminar model for instructor candidates to mirror while ensuring NRA’s high standards of excellence and quality.

"We're very proud of all that Betty has achieved," said Ruthann M. Sprague, NRA's Refuse To Be A Victim® National Coordinator. "She's a great ambassador for our program.

Her students tend to agree.

"We will be doing some talking and planning about security – this really has me thinking. This is one of the best classes I've ever attended."
