Mouren: fusillade762: I thought Mythbusters busted this one?

They busted killing, not injury, IIRC. Bullets will still injure from a few hundred feet up.


Well, if they hit right, that injury could probably turn into a kill. Although I think they were going for a more immediate hit from the air to a normal person, but... eh, I don't know where I was going with this post.

Notabunny: Bullets falling from the sky is old news. Want to get hit by bullets in a new way? In Stockton, CA. the cops have a knife which shoots bullets.

This is why, if you just can't help yourself from shooting a gun in the air, you should make it a shotgun.

Nabb1: I've read some dumb things about New Orleans on this website, but the idea that this town or the people firing their guns on New Years Eve are some sort of Republican voting bloc is one of the most ignorant, insipid, tragically stupid things I ever read. I bet you wore beads even though it was not between Twelfth Night and Ash Wednesday and never left the French Quarter except going from and to the airport.


You don't have to be Republican to espouse / exhibit Republican values or take advantage of Republican policies.  Remember, a lot of people don't vote, they probably are apolitical, but given their disregard for their fellow man, they SHOULD be Republicans.

As usual, I'm confused (bit tipsy).

The GOP prevents the Dems in LA from disarming Latino gangs for their own good.

That's what I'm intended to take away from the thread, right?

The New Orleans stuff is one of those running Fark gags, yes?

I propose that any individual found guilty of recklessly discharging a firearm in a "celebratory" fashion be publicly executed, with pictures from the execution to be distributed and exhibited in public locations nationwide.

Establish serious consequences, and make enforcement of the consequences known, and the incident rate will likely decline.

So, you think the gangbangers down in the Ninth Ward and Seventh Ward are closet Republicans? That's what you are going with? Well, bless your heart, if that's not the most hard fought attempt at a troll as I have ever seen.
 
2014-01-01 10:29:45 PM  
It was a typical, gang related "fly-by" shooting.

fusillade762: I thought Mythbusters busted this one?


A bullet fired roughly straight up is most likely not going to hurt anyone. Fire it at lower angle though, and it will mess up somebody's day.

Anyone who fires "celebratory" shots should be removed from the gene pool. I mean seriously, come on. WTF is wrong with you people.
 
2014-01-01 11:25:35 PM  
Wow.  Nobody has yet blamed the NRA for this "responsible gun owner"?  Amazing.  Either the anti-gun idiots are getting lazy, or they're all asleep.  Come on, aren't ONE of you going to blame the millions of us for some idiot doing something stupid?  It's your way, after all...

It's so pathetic how some people have to bring politics into everything.

SirG, obviously all the interesting trolls have gone to sleep, and we'll have to wait until tomorrow.  (sigh).  I look forward to leftist blaming the NRA for idiots violating every gun safety law the NRA has taught for 100 years, and (rightists?) blaming something something, um, help me here.  Sorry but these stories usually end up one direction here on Fark.

I have a seriously bad cold which excuses me from thinking that said "celebrity" bullets.

swingbozo: I never realized this was "a thing" until we found out they have a "don't fire bullets into the French Quarter" public service campaign after someone was hit and killed by a downfalling bullet on the riverwalk in NOLA the year before.

WTF people. We have to actually say, "Don't fire bullets into the air" for you dumbfarkistan idiots? Sometimes I weep for the stupidity of humanity, especially when they continue to vote Republican.

/went there

Because it's been statistically proven that democrats and liberals aren't only smarter, even disagreeing with them shous your stupidity.

Someone actually DID blame the NRA in comments after the story. An NRA member wouldn't do anything like that, wouldn't associate with someone who would, and would promptly report anyone who did.

NE Los Angeles votes Republican? It's a latino gang thing.


Latino gang members are an important constituency for the GOP.

Vivir libre o morir 2016!


Most likely the Avenues grandkids and illegals, see their tags all over Highland Park. Associated with the 13 tag now, i.e. Mexican Mafia. The older gangsters would kick their butt for bringing attention of LAPD.

I Bing'd "celebrity bullets" and came up with this lovely photo of Maggie Q.

I don't know what this has to do with anything ... and I don't care.

Keep your pointless celebratory shots above 70 degrees people.  Jeez.

So, Bing is wrong.  Not exactly news, and with enough inaccuracies, I suppose a few of them have to be serendipitous or funny.

Let's see...

First Person Shooter.

Shooting up in LA is bad news.

Loaded and alone on New Years Eve discharging my weapon in a celebatory fashion.

/LA also stands for Louisiana.

Also, in order to not be lethal short of a 'golden bb' or 'one punch kill' type hit they have to be fired straight up, and we're talking 'you used a mount and leveling tool' to determine straight.  Having seen videos of celebratory gunfire, I've seen as much as 45 degrees off, which is easily lethal.

coeyagi: You don't have to be Republican to espouse / exhibit Republican values or take advantage of Republican policies. Remember, a lot of people don't vote, they probably are apolitical, but given their disregard for their fellow man, they SHOULD be Republicans.


This is so full of projection that I find it hilareous.  You've turned the whole republican party into a giant strawman/carticature of itself.

Apolitical people are apolitical.  People who like to shoot into the air at christmas can be republican, democrat, or any other party(almost).  They could be using a legal or illegal weapon, though I'd argue in most areas the moment you pull the trigger it's now an illegal firearm.

Unfortunately it doesn't work that way in the wards, maybe should go hand out shirts to the indigenous democrats and explain your thinking to them. I'm sure they will be kind and understanding as most democrats are.

How dum! Your supposed to shoot up. Not down. I'm sitting two blocks away from where that happened.
