What is Random Gunfire? Random Gunfire is shooting a gun in the air to celebrate holidays like New Years Eve and July 4th. When the bullets come down they can cause innocent people to be injured or killed. That is what happened to 14 year old Shannon Smith, who was killed by celebration gunfire while talking on the phone in her own backyard. Shooting in the air not only hurts innocent people, but frightens families living nearby and prevents children from playing safely outdoors. It is also against the law. There are many safe ways to celebrate, so help us stop random gunfire. _______________________________________________ Student Name Nombre de Estudiante ________________________________________________ School Escuela _____________ Grade Grado ____________________________________ Teacher Profesor I give my permission for _________________ (Child’s Name) to participate in the STOP Random Gunfire poster Yo doy permiso para (Nombre del Nino) que participe en el curso de STOP Random contest.
