Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence promoting ''Safety'' Conference

We're pretty sure Eddie Eagle was not invited to this seminar. We're also pretty sure attendees will not be taught the REAL way to protect kids from accidental injuries with firearms: "If you see a gun - Stop! Don't Touch! Leave the Area. Tell an Adult." If you're interested in attending this conference, we recommend spending some time at www.dslg.org (Doctors For Sensible Gun Laws) and go prepared to ask some questions!
