South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit SC CWP

NRA Gun Safety for Kids

Our South Carolina and Florida Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) classes emphasize gun safety. South Carolina and Florida laws, like the gun laws in most places, make adults responsible for the safety of children around guns. In our CWP classes we help parents learn how to meet their responsiblity.

The Eddie Eagle gun safety program for kids saves lives.Click the video below to see a brief clip from the NRA's child safety DVD, Learn Gun Safety With Eddie Eagle. It's part of the NRA's Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program for children from pre-K through Third Grade.

Our clip is only 33 seconds long. It should give you a good idea of the approach. You might want to audition this clip for your own young kids and give them a start on gun safety right now. We think they'll enjoy the jingle and the animation that will help them learn what to do if they encounter an unattended gun.

Preview the clip first, to make sure it's what you want as the parent. At Paladin Services we try to help you take control of raising your children safely. Safety is always our foremost concern. If the clip suits you and seems to interest the children, consider getting the full package of Eddie Eagle materials from the NRA to use at home.

The NRA's Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program teaches children in Pre-Kindergarten through Third Grade the four important steps to take if they find a gun. These steps are presented by the program's mascot, Eddie Eagle®, in an easy-to-remember format consisting of the following simple rules:

    If you see a gun:
        Don't Touch.
        Leave the Area.
        Tell an Adult.

The Eddie Eagle program makes no value judgments about firearms, and no firearms are ever used in the program. Eddie Eagle doesn't teach whether guns are good or bad. He promotes the protection and safety of children.

Our South Carolina CWP classes learn how to keep young kids safe with Eddie Eagle.Like swimming pools, electrical outlets, matchbooks and household cleaning products that can hurt kids who aren't taught to be safe, guns are treated as a fact of everyday life. With firearms found in about half of all American households, the Eddie Eagle approach makes sense. Its only aim is to help young children be safe.

Eddie Eagle is never shown touching a firearm, and he does not promote firearm ownership or use. The program prohibits the use of Eddie Eagle mascots anywhere that guns are present.

The Eddie Eagle Program has no agenda other than accident prevention — ensuring that children stay safe should they encounter a gun.

Eddie Eagle is not propaganda. It is designed to help keep kids safe. The program never even mentions the NRA. Nor does it encourage children to buy guns or to become NRA members. The NRA does not get any "stimulus" or appropriations from Congress, nor is it a trade organization, union, political party, or any other fantasy originating in the minds of those who fear guns and gun owners. The NRA is not affiliated with any firearm or ammunition manufacturer or with any businesses that deal in guns and ammunition.

The NRA is not the "gun lobby." The NRA is a membership organization composed of ordinary Americans who want to practice and preserve the shooting sports and have the means to defend our lives. We, and millions of other ordinary Americans, are the NRA. Click here to join the NRA or renew your annual membership through us at a substantial discount.

All of our classes emphasize gun safety at every point. We begin every class with a safety review and end every class making safe. E-mail us about taking a class with us. Please be sure to include your local telephone number(s) so we can call to determine your needs and answer your questions.
