Missouri gov. signs gun-safety course for first-graders

Missouri schools will be encouraged to teach first-graders a gun safety course sponsored by the National Rifle Association as a result of legislation signed Friday by Gov. Jay Nixon.

The new law stops short of requiring schools to teach the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program. But by putting it in state law, Missouri is providing one of the stronger state-sanctioned endorsements of the NRA-sponsored firearms safety course, which the group says is taught to about 1 million children annually.
 Baby steps. Perhaps next we can start bringing back marksmanship training starting in second grade with air rifles, and possibly I will live to see school kids carrying .22s and shotguns on the school bus for some after-school plinking and hunting...
