One Florida mom is livid after her child was taught a valuable, potentially life-saving lesson in his school.
The Jacksonville parent, who is choosing to remain anonymous, claims Mandarin Oaks Elementary and the National Rifle Association’s gun safety program Eddie Eagle are responsible for informing her 7-year-old son that the message she’s been proclaiming all these years is wrong.

Preaching to your child that ‘guns are bad’ isn’t going to keep them safe. Taking the curiosity factor away from children and providing them with a practical plan of what to do if they should ever come across one is just good parenting.
