Friends Of NRA Chips In For New Eddie Eagle Costume

posted on May 20, 2016

The sheriff’s office in Madison County, Tenn., now has a new Eddie Eagle mascot costume, thanks to a $2,800 donation from the Friends of NRA Forked Deer Chapter. The gift was presented last week to Sheriff John Mehr and Sgt. Allen Castleman.  

The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program is an NRA initiative that was created in 1988 to teach children four simple, easy-to-remember steps so they know what to do if they ever come across a gun. Although Eddie has evolved over the years, his mission remains the same—to remind children that if they see a gun, “Stop! Don’t touch. Run away. Tell a grown-up.”

Sgt. Castleman and the Madison County Sheriff’s Office have been offering the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program to young students for what will be their seventh year. In that time, they’ve taught more than 6,000 children the importance of firearm safety precautions.
