    Yep.....the idiots around here do it traditionally year after year. We have a "blue law" that mandates each citizen residing in the town of Kennesaw must have a firearm on the premises. They sure like to use them on New Year's and July 4th. :roll:

    When I was looking at this house before purchase, there was a rifle hanging in the master bedroom closet. Yep. Sho' nuff. I refuse to have a gun in my house.....but I do know how to use one.

    What happens to all those idiots in Iraq and Afghanistan and other middle eastern countries where they shoot their guns in the air to celebrate. I have seen footage of that kind of thing on TV and I always wondered where the bullets were landing and who was getting hit? It must be raining bullets in those places compared to people firing guns in the air here in the US.

    Yes! That's right! That always occurs to me when I see that. I keep saying to the screen, "No, no... point it up a little straighter, c'mon, that's it...".

    My folks don't go anywhere on New Years Eve for that very reason in PR. Makes me mad. Such a silly, dangerous way to ring in a new opportunity to enjoy life. I see firearms for limited purposes: military, police, collecting, hunting for food, citizen protection of self and home, and the practice needed to maintain the necessary skills.

    They're not intended as noisemakers for the intoxicated. Isn't ammo expensive, anyway?

    On Friday nights, the Arabs in Jerusalem get married and fire their guns into the air as part of their celebration. Some times kids and others get hit from the falling bullets.

    I'm thankful that I do not live near Arab villages. I just hear them firing quite often however. This is crude if you ask me.

    You know what's the last 3 words out of a redneck's mouth you'll ever hear?

    If Phoenix, the police used some new kind of technology this year to catch people shooting guns in the air. From what I hear, they set up all kinds of sensors in certain spots that can detect the sound of gun fire and where it came from, supposably it's accurate up to 4 feet or something, like a GPS.

    Anyway, 6 people were arrested and reports of random gun fire are down almost 200% from last year.
