New Jersey S 3580 - Gun Education

This bill requires a school district that includes grades kindergarten through six to implement the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program. The purpose of the educational program is to promote the safety and protection of children and to emphasize how students should respond if they encounter a firearm. A school district may not use or include a firearm or demonstrate the use of a firearm when teaching the program. The National Rifle Association created the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program in 1988 to promote the protection and safety of children. The program does not make value judgements as to whether guns are good or bad, but rather promotes the safety of children by teaching elementary school students how to respond if they encounter a firearm. Under the program, students are taught that, if they encounter a fiream, they should follow four simple rules: (1) Stop; (2) Don't Touch; (3) Leave the Area; and (4) Tell an Adult.
