    On Friday, July 4th, 2014 at 10 a.m., a press conference will be held at Shooter's World shooting range located at 116 East Fletcher Ave, Tampa. Sandy Duran (Diego Duran's mom) with Bullet Free Sky will discuss the dangers of celebratory gunfire. Bullet Free Sky, is a non-profit organization that is a strong advocate of responsible gun ownership that includes safe handling and shooting of all firearms.

    Sandy Duran became involved in educating the community the dangers of celebratory gunfire after her own teenage son, Diego Duran was nearly fatally injured after being struck in the head by a falling bullet on 2012 New Years Eve while outside our Ruskin home.

    Shooter's World and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office has joined with Bullet Free Sky to help educate the public on the dangers of celebratory gunfire. This irresponsible yet popular practice of firing into the air often results in someone needlessly being seriously injured or killed by falling bullets.
