On Halloween this year, many children will learn about something they may not have expected: Gun safety. The Halloween GunSafe® promotion hosted by the NRA’s Eddie Eagle Program will provide educational materials for community events, from school assemblies to mall trick-or-treating, during the holiday. “Halloween offers a great opportunity to talk about safety with our children, and the NRA is thrilled that so many communities are using the chance to teach firearm safety,” said NRA spokeswoman Amy Hunter.
The materials distributed to Halloween GunSafe® participants include workbooks, stickers and an Eddie Eagle DVD. “No other organization in the world does more to promote firearm safety than the National Rifle Association,” said Hunter, “and the Eddie Eagle Program is a prime example of that.”
