NRA Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program

 

Eddie Eagle   Trigger Trainers uses the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program teaches children in pre-K through third grade four important steps to take if they find a gun. These steps are presented by the program's mascot, Eddie Eagle, in an easy-to-remember format consisting of the following simple rules:

 

If you see a gun:

STOP!
Don't Touch.
Leave the Area.
Tell an Adult.

 

Begun in 1988, The Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program has reached more than 21 million children -- in all 50 states. This program was developed through the combined efforts of such qualified professionals as clinical psychologists, reading specialists, teachers, curriculum specialists, urban housing safety officials, and law enforcement personnel

 

The purpose of the Eddie Eagle Program isn't to teach whether guns are good or bad, but rather to promote the protection and safety of children. The program makes no value judgments about firearms, and no firearms are ever used in the program. Like swimming pools, electrical outlets, matchbooks and household poison, they're treated simply as a fact of everyday life. With firearms found in about half of all American households, it's a stance that makes sense.

 

Eddie Eagle is never shown touching a firearm, and he does not promote firearm ownership or use. The program prohibits the use of Eddie Eagle mascots anywhere that guns are present. The Eddie Eagle Program has no agenda other than accident prevention -- ensuring that children stay safe should they encounter a gun. The program never mentions the NRA. Nor does it encourage children to buy guns or to become NRA members. The NRA does not receive any appropriations from Congress, nor is it a trade organization. It is not affiliated with any firearm or ammunition manufacturers or with any businesses that deal in guns and ammunition.

 

 

Programs for Older Youth

Trigger Trainers programs for older youth are divided by age

group and are based on the individual maturity of each child.

Ages 7 thru 10

Ages 11 thru 17

 

There are no pre-requisites

 

Course description: Your child will be provided with the opportunity to learn the proper way to handle firearms from an NRA certified firearms instructor. In this interactive class, children will learn safety, firearm function and operation, and the fundamentals with range time (shooting)!

 

Students age 7 thru 10 will have the opportunity to shoot BB or pellet guns.

 

Students age 11 and older will have the opportunity to shoot .22 caliber pistols and rifles.

 

Before we go to the range we will cover firearms safety in depth to include:

 

* An interactive discussion on facts and myths of firearms in TV/movies/ video games vs. firearms in real life

 

* Discussion of safety rules

 

* Scenarios on finding guns and what to do and what not do when one is found

 

Your child must be mature enough to handle a firearm with close supervision. As a parent you know how important this is and that children will listen to an instructor more readily than they will listen to their parents.

 

Parents are expected to have a basic understanding of firearms and firearm safety.

 

A PARENT IS REQUIRED TO BE PRESENT WITH THEIR CHILD FOR THE ENTIRE CLASS! HOWEVER, REMEMBER THAT YOUR CHILD IS THE STUDENT NOT YOU!

 

Your encouragement and support of your child throughout the class is most helpful.
