Please do not fire your guns on New Year's Eve

PROGUN supports this call, as it has always advocated over the past years, for licensed gun owners to refrain from firing their guns in the air on new year's eve. The number of injuries and deaths due to stray bullets has gone down drastically over the past years due to our campaign. Let us keep up the good work.  http://m.philstar.com/314191/show/314f209844e92603fa17ddb63cbdbd9e/

PROGUN: Please do not fire your guns on New Year's Eve.

Please do not fire your guns on New Year's Eve.

Although the number of firearms related injuries (with practically no deaths) has dramatically increased these past years due to proper education and discipline among gun owners, there are still a few isolated incidents of stray bullets hitting innocent people. Remember: when you fire your gun upwards, the bullet comes back down at the same speed. Thus even if you do not intend to shoot or aim at someone, a stray bullet can still injure or kill another person a kilometer away. No amount of good intentions or sorry can bring back a human life, once lost. So please let us be responsible this New Year's Eve. Let us fire our guns on any other day of the year, safely, responsibly, and in the proper manner and place.

Stay Safe,

PROGUN.

Have a SAFE New Year: Do Not Fire Your Guns

PROGUN calls upon all licensed and responsible gun owners to please refrain from firing their guns on New Year's Eve. The traditional New Year's revelry of firecrackers and firing has left countless unintended victims of stray gun shot wounds and mutilations from firecrackers.

If you choose to celebrate with firecrackers, please do so in a SAFE MANNER.

1. DO NOT HOLD THE FIRECRACKER IN YOUR HAND

2. Wear eye protection

3. Keep a safe distance from onlookers and family members

4. Have a bucket of water ready nearby

 

Let's all have a SAFE and RESPONSIBLE New Year free from injuries.
