Last week, Sen. Chase Blasi introduced Senate Bill 116, a bill that expands access and standardizes firearm safety education for schools. Please use the link below to contact lawmakers asking them to support SB 116. This important legislation educates children, promotes safety to help reduce the risk of accidents, and raises awareness among students about firearm safety.
Unfortunately, Governor Kelly vetoed a similar measure two years ago, and last year this measure died in the Senate. We can’t let the same thing happen this year. Senate Bill 116 establishes guidelines for appropriate curricula to teach firearms safety to students of all ages. It is based on the NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism’s current Hunter Education In Our Schools.
SB 116 enables firearm safety education to help promote responsible gun ownership by teaching students to be aware of the potential dangers of firearms. Learning about firearms and safety can reduce fear and misunderstanding among students. Please forward this message to your family and friends and ask them to reach out to their lawmakers to support Senate Bill 116.
