This important legislation educates children, promotes safety to help reduce the risk of accidents, and increases awareness among students about firearm safety.
Senate Bill 116 establishes grade-appropriate curricula guidelines to teach firearm safety to students of all ages. It is based on NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism’s existing Hunter Education In Our Schools.
SB 116 enables firearm safety education to help promote responsible gun ownership by teaching students to be aware of the potential dangers of firearms. Learning about firearms and safety can reduce fear and misunderstanding among students. Please forward this to your family and friends, and ask them to also contact the committee members to request support for Senate Bill 116.
