Louisiana Measure Targets Gun Safety

posted on May 23, 2015

A measure that just passed the Louisiana State House by a 93-to-3 vote would provide for firearm safety training for elementary students in the state.

Rep. Blake Miguez, a competitive shooter and former “Top Shot” contestant, sponsored the bill, saying, “The goal is to save children’s lives and protect our youth.”

The measure allows for public school districts to allocate time and funding to administer gun safety lessons modeled after the National Rifle Association’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program. Since it’s introduction in 1988, the Eddie Eagle Program has taught 28 million children what to do if they find a gun: “STOP! Don’t touch. Run away. Tell a grown-up.” 

The bill now goes to the state Senate for consideration.

From Editor: This Is Not A Culture War

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
