    Michigan bills will encourage gun safety education for students

    The Michigan Legislature recently voted to pass several bills sponsored by Senator John J. Gleason, including his legislation to increase programs for gun safety in public schools. Under Senate Bill 1402, the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is required to develop or adopt a model gun safety program based on the "Eddie Eagle" curriculum developed by the National Rifle Association to promote gun accident prevention. Beginning in the 2011 --2012 school year public schools across the state will be encouraged to adopt the model program developed by the MDE.


    Memberships: NRA, GOA, USCCA
    Guns: Glock 26, Ruger LCP, Beretta 90-Two .40, Beretta PX4 Storm Subcompact 9MM, Beretta Tomcat, Bushmaster Patrolman M4

    This is a great idea.

    I've thought for some time that they should have the NRA Basic available in the schools...

    Add to that hunter safety education as well.

  5. hearing the details, it sounds pretty good.. I was expecting it was going to be some curriculum developed by the dept of state that taught kids how scary and horrible guns were.. I'm sure a lot of the teachers will put their own spin on it regardless though.

  7. Unfortunately it's not looking like the bills will pass though, according to a local news blurb.
