Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) plans to host a gun training event in Florida on the anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

The congressman’s Facebook page last week posted an invite for the event to be held this coming Saturday, though a spokesman told the Gainsville Sun newspaper that it was not meant to be on the same day as the anniversary.

“Join us for a Family Firearm Safety event Saturday, December 14 at 2pm in Lake City. I encourage you to bring your family and friends,” the invitation to the event posted on Yoho’s Facebook page said. “Looking forward to seeing you there.”

Instructors at the class plan to talk about the dangers that come with using guns, how to properly use guns, and the importance of making sure guns aren’t too easily accessible, according to the Gainesville Sun. Yoho will also be at the event to answer questions.
