The laser guns help students learn how to aim at a target before they fire a real gun. The class costs $100 and is required before getting a permit to have a gun in the state. Students learn about gun laws and gun safety and also get an opportunity to shoot a few different types of firearms on the indoor shooting range. Massachusetts is one of the few states that require a license just to own a gun. (Photo by Melanie Stetson Freeman/The Christian Science Monitor via Getty Images)
