Local officials to warn residents about dangers of July 4th celebratory gunfire at "One Bullet Kills the Party" press conference and rally


In preparation for the July 4th weekend, Miami-Dade Vice Chairwoman Audrey M. Edmonson and City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado will hold their annual “One Bullet Kills the Party” press conference and rally on Monday, July 2, asking the community not to engage in celebratory gunfire on Independence Day. The event will begin at 10 a.m. at Little Haiti Soccer Park, 6301 NE 2nd Avenue, in Miami. Also attending the event will be members of local law enforcement and clergy.

According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), bullets shot into the air can climb two miles and then fall at a rate of 300 to 700 feet per second. Vice Chairwoman Edmonson participates in this public message prior to every Independence Day and New Year’s Eve to warn residents of the dangers of celebratory gunfire.
