justtray: He was referring to preventing a home invasion, in self defense, on your own property.



Where, conveniently, it's also a farking terrible idea.

Only Joe Biden could make coach guns uncool.

TheBigJerk: dittybopper: This story is about 2 people who don't know the law.  One is a misinformed idiot from Jerkwater USA who has no clue that firing a shotgun into the air in a town could be dangerous, and the other is not the vice president.

Keep repeating it, someday it'll be true if you believe it hard enough.

Terminal velocity, think in terms of hailstones.

Then shut it.


When a projectile leaves a gun, it has a vertical and a horizontal velocity vector.  The vertical vector is impacted by air resistance and gravity.  The horizontal component is affected only by the air it's passing through.  If you fire nearly vertical (85 degrees) the horizontal vector is negligible.  But if you fire a projectile at a 45 degree angle at 1000 fps the initial vertical and horizontal velocity vectors would be about 700 fps and the projectile can return to the ground with enough velocity to kill.

Terminal velocity only applies to a limited subset of "into the air."

Smeggy Smurf: Only pull the trigger if you are aiming at something you intend to kill or destroy


But Joe said to do it if you have any doubts.

The Biden Defense is now in play.

These are uncharted waters my friends...
