Her son is named Diego. Of course she should be deported.

WhippingBoy: To the civilized world, the American obsession with guns borders on sexual fetishization. From an outsider's perspective, it appears similar to the individual who covets women's shoes (and cannot obtain sexual release unless masturbating to said shoes). Hence, the connection to unconventional sexual practices when describing the relationship between (American) gun owners and their hobby.

An obviously desperate attempt to disparage constitutional rights of a country that helps maintain a civilized world. You are awarded no points.

dr.zaeus: natazha: Coming on a Bicycle: You guys actually fire guns in the air at new year's? Ok. 1) Don't come to me again with that talk about responsible gun ownership, and 2) you guys and the Taliban, you deserve each other.

Seriously guys, firing guns for celebration purposes is barbaric.

Yes, it takes a special kind of stupid, but in my experience (California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Illinois, New Jersey) it's much more common in Hispanic neighborhoods.

This has been my experience as well. Perhaps this was the elusive "joke" that subby was attempting to pull off with his weak trolltastic headline.

We have similar celebrations like this in Louisville involving the discharging of weapons in built up urban areas. I think it was during Passover. No that's not the celebration- silly me-- I meant during Drive-by. They all get out, usually in cars but sometimes on foot, and fire their weapons toward their neighbor's dwelling. Seems like a dangerous part of the Drive-by celebration though- don't you think? It is nice of them to cap off the evening by inviting the police and EMS over later that night as part of the festivities.

Mr. Right: If you fire a gun into the air, it leaves at muzzle velocity, whatever that is for your particular firearm. When it returns to earth, it probably achieves what I have heard referred to as terminal velocity. Force being a function of mass and speed, does a bullet returning to earth have as much destructive power as one fired at a target?

Depends on the caliber to some extent but no. The trip up is determined by initial velocity (really fast) counteracted by air resistance and deceleration due to gravity. The trip down is determined by the acceleration due to gravity counteracted by the air resistance. 'Terminal velocity' is when the effect of acceleration is equal to the effect of the increase in air resistance.

I don't always fire guns, but when I do, I prefer to fire them into a sand/dirt backstop where the bullets will safely stop.

/Stay uninjured, my friends.

Celebratory gunfire? Is that even a thing in this country?

I thought we'd decided that dead kids are just a small price to pay for the pleasure gun owners get from their hobby/masturbatory fantasies.
