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.

Elegy: FLASE FLAG. This guy is obviously a conservative plant,
out to discredit the administration's views on gun control.

Study it out.


No need to study anything.  This is from the Washignton Times.  No need to go any further.

Biden was just using reverse psychology on Republitards, since they tend to do the opposite of whatever a Democrat does.

What goes up, must come down, and his advice could have killed someone.


Wellllllllll, to be *COMPLETELY* technically honest, if you are shooting birdshot up into the air, it's not going to kill someone when it comes back down.  It might sting a bit if you look up and get some in your eye, but that's about it.

Hell, I'd let you shoot a shotgun straight up, and I'd stand underneath it, so long as it's birdshot.  Completely safe, as the terminal velocity on something like #7 shot is small.  I'd even do it with a bare head.

Slugs and buckshot are a different matter entirely, however.

Falling shot isn't going to kill anyone.

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."

"The sergeant, who preferred not to be identified, said that Wilmington residents are also not allowed to shoot trespassers. "On your property you can't just shoot someone," he said. "You have to really feel that your life is being threatened."

LOL, as long as you kill the trespassers your story is treated as unquestionable truth.

We live in a pretty stupid country where if you shoot someone down you get off but if you shoot warning shots to scare them off you go to jail.
