DA An “Ideal Public Trustee”

To The Editor:

This year’s five National Rifle Association home defense courses successfully concluded in September. Held at the Fulton County Pistol and Rifle Club and taught by Bob Strait, the courses offer both class discussion and live-fire exercises.

Essential to the class discussions are the knowledge and experience provided by Fulton County District Attorney Travis Kendall.

Mr. Kendall once again, as in years past, donated his private time to expertly outline the legal considerations and rights and responsibilities of owning and carrying a handgun. His detailed explanations and common sense examples give the participants a clear understanding of the realities facing them and the confidence to make their own very personal decisions regarding their safety.

Mr. Kendall’s boundless patience with the class participants’ questions sets the relaxed tone that allows for a full discussion of everyone’s concerns. By his actions, Mr. Kendall embodies the selfless spirit of the ideal public trustee. Fulton County is fortunate to have him.

I sincerely hope that he can again be with us for next year’s classes.

J. Michael DeLuca
