Meet Eddie Eagle and learn his important safety message at NRA Annual Meeting in Houston
Fairfax, Virginia - Although tens of thousands of people will converge on Houston from May 3-5 for the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting, one person will easily stand out - rather, one bird.
Eddie Eagle is the mascot of the NRA's Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program, a likable eagle who has a very important message for youngsters. Eddie doesn't teach whether guns are good or bad, but promotes the protection and safety of children. He travels around the country to make sure kids know:
“If you see a gun: STOP! Don’t Touch. Leave the Area. Tell an Adult."
No firearms are ever used in the program and are merely treated as facts of life like swimming pools, electrical outlets, matchbooks and household poison.
