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.
