P.O.S. Trinidad (Sonique Solutions) – Popular Television host and educator Kezel Jackson
is partnering with The Firearms Training Institute Ltd directors Towfeek Ali and Nyree
Alfonso to promote public education regarding the safe use and handling of firearms.
T&T based Jackson is the presenter and driving force behind ‘Crash Class’, a weekly TV show
which is aired regionally in Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados and Antigua & Barbuda and delivers
valuable information to the masses on a variety of subject matters such as Law, Medicine, Social
Sciences and History in an entertaining, relatable and engaging manner.
Crash Class’ partnership with The Firearms Training Institute Ltd is seeking to promote
education rather than ignorance.
Regarding the importance of firearms education and the motivation behind this collaboration,
Kezel stated, “Guns are extremely dangerous if mishandled, both intentionally and
unintentionally. If members of the public have the opportunity to buy them, then they should
have the opportunity to be educated and trained. Perhaps, it would better serve our citizens to be
more well-informed about guns in general.”
The Firearms Training Institute Ltd director Mr. Towfeek Ali echoed Kezel’s sentiments saying,
“We hope to build meaningful understanding of the lawful and safe use of firearms, including
proper handling and secure storage.”
His co-director Nyree Alfonso shared, “There is a negative perception and stigma surrounding
guns, as there is with the ownership of them. Legal ownership of a firearm should not be feared
or be taboo to any law-abiding citizen. The real issue which is of national concern is the influx of
illegal weaponry which has found its way into the hands of the criminal element.”
All parties emphasized that more awareness, training and education are needed and view this
partnership as an imperative tool in achieving these objectives.
These weekly firearms education and safety features will be viewable on upcoming episodes of
