Gun Safety for Kids

The Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program teaches children in pre-school through third grade the four important steps to take if they find a gun. These steps are presented by the programs mascot, Eddie Eagle, in a memorable format consisting of the following simple rules:

If you see a gun:

Don’t Touch it!
Leave the Area.
Tell an Adult.

Once a child masters the principles of the Eddie Eagle GunSafe program they are ready to handle small-caliber firearms under adult supervision. If you never let your children touch something (like a computer, cell phone, knife, gun, etc) the minute you are gone they are going to want to try whatever it was you always denied them. In the case of firearms, this is not the best plan. Teaching your children how to safely manipulate and use firearms will dampen some of that natural curiosity they have, and learning what a firearm can do under supervision is much better than waiting for them to steal a chance on their own, and possible injure or kill someone or themselves in the process. Teach your children well.
