Greyson Guns has long provided a popular shooting range and gun store for firearms enthusiasts, but now the business has added a new twist \u2014 general safety courses to be taught at the new \u201cGreyson Academy.\u201d And the classes don\u2019t involve shooting anything. \u201cIt\u2019s not our goal to convert people to become gun owners,\u201d said the academy\u2019s Director of Training Anthony Cuozzo, the retired Orange assistant police chief. \u201cWe\u2019d love them to be educated.\u201d The academy also offers classes designed for serious gun owners, but the new offerings will be focused on safety education. Cuozzo, who developed similar programs while at the police department \u2014 teaching women\u2019s safety, teacher drills, Internet safety, even babysitter safety \u2014 said among the Greyson Academy offerings will be safety training for students headed to college , classes on home safety \u2014 including theft protection \u2014 and Internet safety, including how to talk to teenagers about it. There also is a \u201cHow to talk to your kids about guns,\u201d class \u2014 \u201cWe still see tragedy\u201d with kids who handle parents\u2019 guns, Cuozzo said. Greyson also is developing a small-business active-shooter safety course that teaches the new national model of \u201crun, hide fight,\u201d rather than the old shelter in place. Even though the classes are not designed to promote gun ownership, that doesn\u2019t mean there\u2019s no general public classes involving guns \u2014 such as the \u201cHow to choose a firearm that\u2019s right for you\u201d or \u201cHow to buy a gun,\u201d the latter part of a free lecture series. The general public offerings at Greyson Academy also include a class on gun laws and a women\u2019s self -defense class psychological. Most of the classes are $99 each. The pristine, state-of-the-art classroom where the teaching takes place is situated in a newly remodeled space at the business, located at 543-545 Boston Post Road. Cuozzo, an adjunct college professor, said he\u2019s taught safety on campus to freshman at the University of New Haven, Albertus Magnus, Yale University and University of Bridgeport. He said much of the key in that arena is to be self-aware, make good decisions, \u201cif you see something, say something,\u201d and to be careful on social media, including posting your whereabouts. Cuozzo, who was a police firearms instructor both at the local and state levels, said he can design a class for any need. Greyson Guns owner Mike Horvath said all the education they can add \u2014 all the \u201clittle things\u201d \u2014 will make a difference to the community and in public safety. \u201cWe\u2019re not just a bunch of gun people.\u201d Horvath said. Cuozzo, who retired last year after a 27-year career at the police department and made a brief career switch to restaurant executive, decided he wanted to return to his passion of training and teaching. \u201cI was like, wow, this is like my dream job,\u201d when he and Horvath started talking about the concept. \u201cI have the opportunity to develop curriculum and training that have value to the general public \u2014 Joe Citizen.\u201d Cuozzo has an undergraduate degree in criminal justice, and a master\u2019s degree in leadership from Albertus Magnus College.
