SoFla Leaders: Put Your Guns Away On The Fourth Of July

South Florida leaders are asking residents to put their weapons away this Fourth of July.

“One Bullet Kills the Party” is the message for Independence Day, community leaders said Tuesday morning at a news conference at Henry Reeves Park in Miami.

“As you know, when bullets are fired into the air, they must come down,” said Miami-Dade County Commissioner Audrey Edmonson.

South Florida police departments stood alongside the local leaders during the conference.

“Once you shoot a bullet in the air, it will eventually come down, and it could come down on one of these precious people,” said City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez.

Miami-Dade Police Director.Juan Perez said those who are thinking of firing their guns need to think about the children.

If you see someone firing a gun on the Fourth of July or know of anyone trying to celebrate by using these weapons, call police.
