State House tackles celebratory gunfire

ATLANTA — The state House has taken a stand against celebratory gunfire.

State representatives voted in favor of HR 341, which encourages governments and businesses to teach the public about the dangers of celebratory gunfire.

“The loss of an innocent human life is always tragic, but it seems even more so when it is caused by a thoughtless random act,” state Rep. Michele Henson, D-Stone Mountain, said in a news release. “There are times we all want to celebrate special occasions, but it is never right to celebrate in a way that endangers human life – it is never right to celebrate with random gunfire.”
