Subject:  celebratory gunfire

Contact:  Kevin L. Jamison (816) 455-2669


What goes up must come down.  WMSA warns Royals fans not to fire their guns to celebrate the team’s wins.  “It violates gun safety rules to fire unless you are certain where the bullet will land,” said WMSA President Kevin L. Jamison.  “People have been killed by celebratory gunfire.  Violation of safe shooting rules has been found to be the basis for a manslaughter conviction.  See State v Whiteley, 294 S.W.3d 114 (Mo.App. S.D. 2009). Some of our members have seen celebratory gunfire in the Middle-East,” Jamison continued.  “Multiple tragedies have been the result.”
