A MESSAGE FROM HOUSTON CITY COUNCILMAN ADRIAN GARCIA!
District H Council Member Adrian Garcia invites you to join him in announcing awareness of New Years Holiday Celebratory Gunfire. As you know, citizens tend to randomly fire their firearms in the air, in celebration of New Years, Independence Day, and other holidays. There have been many deaths in past years in connection to bullets plummeting down from the sky, as a direct result of this reckless behavior. Council Member Garcia urges Houstonians to take the lead in reporting these acts to the proper authorities, in hopes of making arrests, not continuing this practice, as well as saving innocent lives.
“I am asking all good neighbors to stand together to stop this dangerous practice, and report anyone you see discharging their firearm. We need to remind folks that no one needs to celebrate any occasion like this, and by stopping those who do, we are saving innocent lives! I trust that Houstonians will take the initiative, help keep our neighborhoods safe. This is also a good time to remember that having a firearm in the home is serious responsibility. I urge
gun owners to use gunlocks to avoid accidents.” stated Council Member Garcia.
