Gun safety activists triggered by NRA’s Eddie Eagle gun safety program

The truth about the left, which the Cult of Gun Control is part of, is easy to see. Just ignore their rhetoric, and watch their real goals

The precepts were simple: “If you find a gun, stop, don’t touch, leave the area, tell an adult.” These days it’s been changed to “Stop, Don’t Touch, Run Away, Tell a Grown-Up.”

Utterly non-controversial right?

Well, apparently not. Eddie Eagle has been stirring up controversy for decades.

According to an article from Splinter News, Eddie Eagle was conceived as a trojan horse.

To really understand the NRA’s agenda with Eddie Eagle, it’s important to go back to the beginning. Eddie was essentially conceived as a Trojan Horse. The character and program was developed in 1988 by Marion Hammer, the ultra-powerful Florida lobbyist behind a string of infamous gun laws, including the “Stand Your Ground” law. According to the Violence Policy Center—which released a report in 1997 describing Eddie Eagle as “Joe Camel with feathers”—Hammer created the program as a way to deter lawmakers from passing Child Access Prevention (CAP) Laws, which criminalize keeping firearms easily within reach of children.

That’s right, a program which teaches children not to touch guns is somehow responsible for making them want to buy guns.

Hammer’s argument was that, instead of punishing adults for keeping a dangerous object around children, children could learn to simply not touch or use a gun that they might have access to—effectively shifting the responsibility of not getting shot by a gun an adult left lying around to kids.

Ah, so education is bad? Informing kids is bad? Talk about obscene thinking. The fact here is simple, the left hates firearms, and it has a goal of one day stripping all rights to firearms from the people. So, any group that supports the natural right of gun ownership must be demonized, no matter how much it stresses and promotes safety.
