Kansas – Urgent Action Needed – Contact Your Lawmakers Today to Support Firearm Safety Education Bill Veto Override

Your immediate action is needed! Please contact your lawmakers and urge them to support House Bill 2304 and override Governor Kelly's veto. This bill establishes grade-appropriate curricula guidelines for firearm safety education to students of all ages, using the tried-and-tested NRA's Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism's existing Hunter Education In Our Schools.

Unfortunately, this is the second time Governor Kelly has vetoed this important bill, despite its overwhelming bipartisan support in both chambers. Our children's safety should always be a top priority, and the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program has been doing just that for over 30 years, reaching over 32 million children across the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

Please take action now and contact your lawmakers to encourage them to vote for the veto override. Use the link below to take action and make your voice heard. Then, share this alert with your family and friends, and ask them to do the same. Together, we can ensure that our children receive the education they need to stay safe around firearms.

Thank you for your support in this critical matter.
