FAIRFAX, Va. –-(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association is proud to support the efforts of law enforcement agencies nationwide as part of the annual National Night Out Campaign, donating Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program materials to more than 200 agencies to help promote youth firearm safety to over 106,000 young Americans on Aug. 1 2017.
Since its launch in 1988, the NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program has helped teachers, law enforcement officers and parents teach Eddie Eagle’s life-saving message to more than 29 million children. The powerful lessons of the Eddie Eagle program – Stop! Don’t Touch! Run Away! Tell A Grown Up! – are the keys to helping children from Pre-K through 4th grade know what to do to stay safe should they encounter a firearm.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), child-related firearm accident fatalities have fallen by 75 percent over the past 25 years, a testament to the impact of proper gun safety education programs like the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program.
