USA -(Ammoland.com)- The NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show, held Feb. 4-12 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, is billed as the world’s largest consumer outdoor show. While nearly 200,000 attendees travel from across the country to meet with manufacturers and retailers to learn about and purchase new gear for their favorite outdoor activity, the NRA also goes to great lengths to promote its educational and recreational programs at the event.

While the mainstream media and “gun safety” organizations promote a gun-control message, we’ll continue to be the only group offering a real accident prevention solution.

A new attraction this year was the Eddie Eagle Kid Zone. Over the nine-day show, thousands of youngsters immersed themselves in a kid-friendly experience featuring face painting, wildlife identification and even some basketball. The fun came with an opportunity to share Eddie’s simple live-saving message: STOP! Don’t Touch. Run Away. Tell A Grownup.

It’s a mantra that has now been taught to nearly 30 million children since inception, making the award-winning Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program, also the world’s leading firearm accident prevention program.

At the Great American Outdoor Show, Eddie Eagle staff handed out nearly 10,000 prizes and supplied over 4,000 families with Eddie Eagle materials including workbooks, stickers, parent’s guides, and DVD’s – all which opened the conversation for parents to talk to their kids about firearm safety.

The National Rifle Association has been the leading voice on education, training and safety since its founding in 1871.

While the mainstream media and “gun safety” organizations promote a gun-control message, we’ll continue to be the only group offering a real accident prevention solution.
