LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

A new clinic is helping to arm adults with a little empowerment this weekend.

The first annual NASA Rifle Clinic gives people with physical disabilities an opportunity to learn how to shoot rifles. The class pairs each person with a friend and a .22 rifle, but organizers say it goes beyond just teaching the rules of marksmanship. 

"One of the things I try and focus on when I work with people in general, but especially people with disabilities, is empowerment,” said Amy Burns, the clinic’s program director.  “And this is a great opportunity for them to feel it."

About half a dozen people took part in the clinic Saturday.
