An Appeal: Please Do not Fire your guns on New Year's Eve
New Year's Eve is once again coming up and PROGUN wishes to greet all responsible gun owners a happy New Year! We are also appealing to all gunowners not to fire your guns on New Year's Eve. Our track record of responsible gun ownership and education over the past decade had drastically REDUCED deaths and injuries from stray bullets from hundreds in the 80's and 90's to less than 15 injuries and less than 5 deaths these past 2 years. Nevertheless one injury or death is one too many; let us aim for ZERO injuries from stray bullets. A bullet when fired upwards in the air goes down and lands with the same velocity and power as when it left the barrel of the gun. So, a seemingly harmless act of firing a gun in the air can unknowingly cause the death of an innocent child 1 km away. Wag po tayo pasaway; umiwas po tayo ng makasakit o makapatay ng kapwa na hindi sinasadya; let's be responsible.
So please, let us keep up the good work and continue to contribute to a SAFE, HAPPY, AND INJURY-FREE NEW YEAR'S EVE.
Happy New Year to all!
