Can you believe idiots still shoot into the air?
« on: July 04, 2019, 11:09:01 AM »
Parents and police are begging you: Please don't fire your gun into the air on July Fourth


Quote
"Shooting a gun into the air is not only reckless, its extremely dangerous," Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine said. "A bullet that is fired into the air will come back down with enough velocity to seriously injure or kill someone."

As Independence Day approaches, local police are reminding people to refrain from the dangerous practice of shooting their guns into the air as they shoot off fireworks.

It is reckless and irresponsible to shoot any gun in the air.

Your term, idiots, is fitting.

Unless of course it is a signal flare gun then it would be reckless and irresponsible NOT to do so.

happens all the time here, but if you say anything you get
painted as a racist/supremist.

some years ago i chastised some border jumpers down the street
(on new year's if i remember right) about gunshots.
their response was "heet's hokay, we not chooting at nobody,
we choost chooting in de are. . ."

oh well. . . . :facepalm:

Still a popular way to celebrate in the Middle East... 

What most people dont realize is just how far that bullet will travel: 
A .22 rifle or 9mm handgun will go a mile,  a .308 3+ miles, Boomer 7+.

No guns really being shot off around here the 4th. But the neighbors put on a great fireworks display that night! We sat in the front yard and watched. They are about 1/4 mile down the road from us.
