Spring Hill, FL -- Students from Mary Giella Elementary got a lesson on gun safety Tuesday morning.
Children learned four steps that could save their lives: stop, don't touch, leave the area, and tell an adult.
Safety Town's Corporal Creg Bell expresses the importance of firearm awareness and admits that it's never too early when it comes to learning about gun safety.
"This is the perfect opportunity for us to get to them early and teach them what their going to do if they were to ever encounter a fire arm," says Corporal Bell.
Corporal Bell says too many incidents involving kids and guns have turned tragic. It's something he hopes the Eddie Eagle GunSafe program will help combat.
"Kids are growing up with video games and they're not realizing the dangers of not properly using a hand gun or a rifle, so what this training does is talk to them about the differences between what they see in a video game and what reality is," says Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco.
The NRA-supported program has been around since 1988. It has taught 26 million children the importance of gun safety.
Corporal Bell says the Eddie Eagle GunSafe program is something he will continue each year.
