      Should first graders take a gun safety course by law?

      Should first graders in Missouri be forced to take a gun safety course?That's a question that some Missouri parents will have to wrestle with if a new bill under consideration becomes law.The bill proposed by Senator Dan Brown from Rolla, Missouri would make it a mandate to teach the NRA Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program in ever first grade classroom in the state.Teachers would also be required to atttend 8 hours of training that would include tactics on how to respond to an armed intruder inside their school.The measure is now before a Senate committtee but no action has been taken on it.Surprisingly Brown filed the measure just one day before the shooting in Newtown on December 14th, 2012.
