Police found the spent fireworks and now want prosecutors to charge the two with reckless endangerment.

Endangerment of what?  People's sleep?  I think that's called a "noise complaint."

Hey, at least they didn't take their weed.

Wan't me. Haven't drunkenly fired roman candles at friends in at least a year.

though they're probably readily available here.... gotta run

They don't sound anything like guns.

that was supposed to be "wasn't", but I actually prefer it the way it came out. Sounds more like me when drinking and wanting to shoot fireworks at those I enjoy most.

I'm assuming you've seen television, so it must be the sound of roman candles you have no idea of.

There's only one gun they sound like.

Unless you live in Detroit or Chicago, in which case it was probably gunfire.

I live in a college town.

A night without this crap would be more unusual.
 
2013-03-19 09:37:13 PM  
No, I woke up to gunfire because my neighbor was target practicing.  He's ATF so it's hard to call the cops and get anything done about it.

It's mostly legal to possess in WA. You may have heard.

I know that because in my neighborhood when I wake up to what sounds like gunfire it is.

Also, I remember back in Kosovo when the local kids thought it was funny to blow off a pack of firecrackers in the street when we were rolling through their village. Great test of your trigger discipline.

"a man shooting a gun, a woman crying and people running."

Or as we call it here, friday evening.
 
2013-03-19 09:53:04 PM  
No they don't.  We had Roman candle wars when I was younger.  And more recently may or may not have given two teenagers a beer for having their own duel.

They may sound similar to a cap gun, at best.

dude, I live in Honduras.  I hear no shiat gunfire 3-4 times a week.  Big difference in the sound

Why not grab some beers and join him? ATF buddy = carte blanche to do certain things I won't admit to doing on the 4th of July like improvising Tijuana Mamas with duct tape and smaller fire crackers.

I did wake to the sound of gunfire last night, it was my neighbour shooting at a skunk. We had a possum of our own to contend with.

The other day some drunk idiot decided to shoot at the cops after crashing his car instead of getting a DUI... now he's dead. All a block from my apartment, and i slept through it.

I once killed a possum with a slingshot.  Probably my manliest moment.

If more regular citizens were armed with roman candles, these hooligans wouldn't be so brazen.

"But reports of a shootout at the Counterbalance were much exaggerated."

Hey! That's where Frasier Crane lives.  I hope he's okay.

the ones i remember hardly made any sound

Flint police suck when it comes to responding to gun fire reports, so can't get anything done about it.

Anymore I just sleep through it.

Good thing you killed it. A possum with a slingshot is a deadly animal.

I caught a possum eating out of the cat dish next to the back door at my parents house. It freaked out as I pulled up in my truck and ran AWAY... and face first into the garage door. Thunk.

Go you! We trapped this one in a live trap and it proceeded to shiat all over the place before we let it go out in the back field.

LMAO! Did anyone but the possum see you? This possum was eating out of our cat's dish inside that house.

When I was a kid and a lot dumber, I saw a skunk eating out of our garbage behind the house. I sprayed some water on it and it ran away. It came back a little while later and continued rifling through the garbage. I got a bowl of warm tap water and threw it on it. It ran away again but left a loverly present all over the back of the house, including the back door. It was five in the morning and the smell woke everyone in the house. It was horrendous. Lesson learned, skunk, lesson learned.

A couple of years ago, we randomly fired some large bottle rockets in Ballard on the 4th. No complaints and it went on around the neighborhood until the wee hours. Two weeks later on my birthday, we fired the handfull of leftovers and had a neighbor across the street run over screaming "TERRORIST, YOU'RE A TERRORIST. YOU'RE GONNA BURN THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD DOWN!!!" We were all very high and laughed and laughed at that man. Afterwords I was given my FARK handle.

I burned off someone's nipple with a Roman candle once. True story. Why yes, alcohol was involved.
