When celebrating Independence Day, experts say you should keep guns off the list.

There will be lots of fireworks being shot into the sky on the Fourth of July, but law enforcement officers urge that celebratory gunfire should stay out of the mix.

"It only takes one gun and one bullet to kill someone," said Detective Larry McKinnon, the public information officer with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

He said that what the celebratory shooters are lacking is foresight.
