The video focuses on the fact that a four-year-old discovered a loaded gun underneath a porch. It ignores the more important question: why didn’t anyone teach him about gun safety? The NRA’s Eddy Eagle program‘s “stop, don’t touch, run away, tell an adult” message is aimed at kids like this. Shame on those schools and gun control groups whose hoplophobia bars Eddy from darkening school doors. Meanwhile and in any case, shouldn’t schools go beyond Eddy to teach the four gun safety rules? Or is all gun safety instruction, like religion, best left to parents?
