Senator Proposes Teaching Kids Gun Safety

Ad Feedback

Republican Sen. Dan Brown is proposing legislation requiring school districts to teach first graders gun safety.

He wants to introduce "The Eddie Fagle" program to schools. The NRA developed the program to promote safety and the protection of children and to teach students how to respond if they encounter a firearm.

"From what I've read over Senate Bill 75, I'm in favor. I'm not sure if the training needs to start at first grade or maybe a little bit later, but one thing I would change as a superintendent, I would ask my board to allow us to train every year," Brown said.

"The same training may be up through eighth grade because repetition, I believe, is important," he said.

The bill would also require teachers and school employees to participate in armed intruder training.

Critics say teaching the children about guns will only increase their interest in them.
