Seattle Democrat promotes NRA gun safety programon February 21, 2013 @ 1:26 pm (Updated: 1:58 pm - 2/21/13 )
The NRA has little love for State Senator Maralyn Chase, but she likes the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program that features the motto: "Stop. Don't touch. Leave the area. Tell an adult."
Chase, a 32nd district Democrat, is sponsoring a bill that would require the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction to develop a gun safety program based on Eddie Eagle that schools could adopt by the fall of 2014.
The measure gets a hearing in the Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee Thursday evening in Olympia.
A separate resolution in the state Senate would urge all schools, day cares, preschools and child care programs to teach firearms safety.
