The Bossier City Gun Show is set for this weekend at the Bossier Civic Center.

Concealed gun permit instructor Kevin Billiot of Colfax, La., has been teaching the training course for seven years. He says demand for permits has stayed stabled during his tenure of teaching monthly classes to about 12 students.

Billiot, a deputy fire marshal, says he talks with all participants about their motivations for acquiring a concealed handgun permit.
