MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -
It is a tradition to ring in the new year with a bang, but the Moss Point Police Chief Keith Davis warns, "It better be from a firework and not a gun."
"If you get caught you are going to jail. We are not going to write tickets. We are going to take you to jail it is going to be "zero tolerance" in the City of Moss Point," Davis said.
Just for shooting a gun in the city you are facing six months in jail and if someone is injured the penalty is much stiffer.
Davis said the last thing he wants is for one of his officers to have to take someone to the hospital on New Year's because of a gunshot.
"Those bullets do come back to earth and if a person is in the wrong place at the wrong time could be struck by a falling bullet," Davis said.
According to several studies by lethal experts, a bullet can fall at three times the amount of force it takes to penetrate the skull.
"We will have every officer available in Moss Point on New Year's Eve. We are going to respond to the calls. We have a lot of people calling in when people are firing their weapons," Davis said. "We want to keep everybody safe, we want people to enjoy the New Year's Eve."
Not only is it dangerous, but it also keeps officers from answering other calls. Last year on New Year's Eve the Moss Point Police Department responded to 211 calls.
