MARION, Miss. (WTOK) - Law enforcement from several agencies will be gathering Oct. 5 to educate the public about gun safety. This is the 3rd Annual Rights and Responsibilities event that will be held at the Hamasa Shrine building in Marion.

Marion Police Chief Randall Davis said this will involve agencies like the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and even the Lauderdale Emergency Management Agency.

Representatives will share what they face on a day-to-day basis. Chief Davis said his goal is to make people aware and educated about current laws and promote responsible firearm ownership.

“We’ve got the Highway Patrol that will be there, and we’re going to talk about concealed carry. We’re going to talk about permits. I’ve got an MBI auto theft unit coming, talking about all the deaths, or the vehicles. I’ve got animal control going to be there. We’re going to be talking about having the incidents with your animals, you know, between neighbors. LEMA talking about explosives and expired ammunition that they have had to deal with. Wildlife and fisheries, they’ll be there just talking,” said Chief Davis.

The event is Oct. 5, starting at 6:30 p.m., at the Hamasa Shrine building in Marion.
