Naked Swimmer Distracts Homeowner – Gun Safety Course
If a strange woman asks to swim in your pool naked, be suspicious.
In Crossville, Tenn., a man and woman asked if the woman could take a skinny dip, and then the man said he was leaving to get cigarettes, according to the Crossville Police Department. But while the woman swam naked and the distracted homeowner watched, someone robbed the home of nearly $1,000 in jewelry, cash, a handgun and prescription drugs, police said. “We’ve seen numerous distraction methods – asking for help looking for a dog, asking for help with gas for a stranded car and then people come back and find their home was burglarized,” Crossville Police Department Det. J.C. Hancock said. “They just took it a new level using a naked woman.
On Friday, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon signed into law a bill that includes a provision encouraging Missouri schools to teach a National Rifle Association-sponsored, gun-safety class to some of the state’s littlest learners. The legislation, which was first proposed a day before the Sandy Hook massacre in December 2012, gives schools the freedom to determine whether or not they would like to offer the course, according to Fox News. Schools that offer the program are eligible to apply for additional state funding.
The NRA course is called the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program and it has been offered in states across the country since its inception in 1988. However, Missouri is one of a handful of states that supports using the program specifically in law. Other states may be allowed to teach the class, but only Missouri and several other states explicitly endorse the program in legislation, reports Fox News.
