The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Department says kids who got guns for Christmas need to be properly educated on how to use those weapons safely.
They're holding a First Gun Class Saturday (Jan. 7), which is already full. But authorities say they'll hold several more classes this year.
Deputies say biggest things to remember is to never play around with guns and don't point them at people. Also, parents should be aware that even small caliber weapons and pellet or BB guns can cause fatal injuries.
