Attended by about 80 supporters, the event raised several thousand dollars for state and federal NRA Foundation pro- grams. According to NRA field repre- sentative Phil Roath, who helped with the Sussex banquet, 50 per- cent of the funds raised will stay in Delaware to support local pro- grams that encourage safety and responsibility in the shooting sports. The other 50 percent of the funds go toward national programs such as the Eddie Eagle program. "It's like the 'stop, drop and roll' program taught for fire safety ex- cept this program teaches children in kindergarten through fourth grade what to do when they come upon a firearm. It teaches them to stop, don't touch, leave the area and tell an adult," said Roath. ren Short, Troop 4 patrol Man- ship's Rural Community Policing Unit is based at Troop 7. "The program's been taught to more than 12 million children at no cost to anyone except us. The funds also go into education and training programs. There are now 42,000 NRA-certified instructors in various areas such as shotguns, pistols and dries. "We also sponsor a program called 'I Refuse To Be A Victim' which is taught by women for women. It does not advocate gun ownership. Rather it teaches women common sense things like using peep holes in doors to check on visitors and parking cars under streetlights," said Roath. "Overall, the goal of the NRA is to advocate responsible gun own- ership and protect second amend- ment fights [which allow citizens to bear arms]." Roath invited all those attending the banquet to vis- it the National Firearm Museum on Rt. 66 west of Washington D.C. Charlie Steele, chairman of the Sussex committee, said there are currently between 1,500 and 2,000 NRA members in Sussex County.
