I think celebratory gunfire (firing straight up into the air) is more common in the inner cities than out in MAGA territory, so you probably need to add a "homie" or something in there.


juxley t1_j2dscl9 wrote

You are probably right there, and I still don't see the point in it but there we are anyhow.


JethroFire t1_j2dyj9z wrote

Me either. Everything comes down somewhere.

Terminal velocity


JethroFire t1_j2fpbos wrote

See above. Terminal velocity for many rounds is still capable of causing injury or death, and that's only for rounds fired at a steep enough angle. Rounds fired non-vertically will impact with greater velocity.

MAGAs aren’t going to waste the ammunition. Have you seen how much they cost?


JethroFire t1_j2eajle wrote

They also usually have places to go with proper back stops.

Firing into the air is FREEZE PEACH!

I literally wonder how long it will take for this to become an actual courtroom argument..

You could argue that, but discharging a firearm for non-defensive purposes in a residential zone is illegal. If someone wants to just shoot your gun to celebrate the new year go out into the fuckin sticks and shoot it into a big hill like a proper barely legal gun hobbyist.

I'm in the sticks and that shit's illegal here. Not like my redneck ammosexual neighbors have any respect for the law, especially when they're drunk.

What if I celebrate something by going hunting or to a shooting range? Do I just not tell the ones giving hunting licenses? Will the shooting range employees get in trouble if I am caught?


Divallo t1_j2ew6xp wrote

Celebratory gunfire has an accepted definition. Shooting up in the fire basically.

This is one of the few laws that I think everyone will agree is actual common sense.

The only acceptable time in my opinion to shoot up in the air is using birdshot with a shotgun in the right situation and circumstances and even then every pellet has a lawyer attached to it if anything goes wrong.

But shooting traffic signs is still ok right?



Divallo t1_j2evt3c wrote

Shooting straight up in the air is the only "celebratory": gunfire I've ever heard of and that's wildly reckless. I want to say shooting up in the air is the "definition" of this term.

l even if you don't hit anything or anything and that's a good thing but I feel like a case for reckless endangerment could have already been made for that and this law seems a little bit superfluous. Not complaining I'm just saying by default I'm pretty sure celebratory gunfire is always illegal.

FFS! Thanks for the reminder. I need to sedate my girls for the night. I'm surrounded by redneck ammosexuals.
