MIAMI (WSVN) – With the Fourth of July on the horizon, Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado held a news conference, Thursday, to stress that celebratory gunfire can have disastrous consequences.Regalado reminded citizens that “One Bullet Kills the Party.”Along with his reminder of the danger of celebratory gunfire, he also stressed how illegal the act is. “If someone fires a gun as a celebratory measure, the police will be knocking on your door in the next hours because of the shots sputtered,” he said.Almost every year, innocent bystanders are struck by bullets that rain down after shots are fired into the air, with some incidents resulting in fatalities.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

A federal judge on Tuesday will consider a request by Royal Dutch Shell PLC for an injunction against illegal boarding of Arctic-bound drilling equipment by activists from Greenpeace Inc.U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Gleason on April 11 granted Shell a restraining order to keep Greenpeace from entering a safety zone around a semi-submersible drill rig, the Polar Pioneer, and a heavy lift ship carrying it from Malaysia to Washington state.Shell hopes to drill exploratory wells this summer in the Chukchi Sea off Alaska’s northwest coast.Conservation groups oppose Arctic drilling and say oil companies have not demonstrated they can clean up a major spill in the remote region.Six Greenpeace activists on April 6 boarded the ship carrying the Polar Pioneer as it traveled northwest of Hawaii.
