Then there are the fine folks who shoot firearms into the air......
Every so often, The Big Guy shows He has a sense of humour.
I think you misread the post you quoted. Austin is SHORT 400 officers.
I have a friend who lost both hands and his eyes having something go off in his fingers when he was young. The story was that his 'friends' thought it would be funny...
I have shot off way too many to agree with y’all. I didn’t shoot any this year but don’t have a problem with the few times a year folks shoot them.
This should result in confiscation of all firearms owned by the offender, and a fine at least equal to drunk driving, they are on the same scale of negligence.
The national anthem:
"and the rockets' red glare,
the bombs bursting in air,
gave proof through the night
that our flag was still there."
We were under attack from the Empire. It's a celebratory thing. Let's not get into the rum business of comparing dogs. My mutt doesn't seem to mind -- with each boom or crackle, he barks and barks. I think he's just pissed he can't come outside to watch.
All kinds of illegal fireworks were going on in my area. Some of the explosions sounded bigger than m80s and even from a distance set off my neighbors car alarm more than once. Very annoying, inconsiderate and against the law. Saw some fireworks launching from people's back yards........and who do you think they'd call if their house caught on fire or there was an accident?
I agree with that. No excuse.
love it when stupidity is it`s own reward
This thread should've ended right there.
Shannon's law is named after Shannon Smith, a fourteen-year-old Phoenix girl killed by a stray bullet in June 1999. Smith's parents, after being informed that the assailant's activity constituted, at most, a misdemeanor offense, advocated stronger penalties, to prevent future tragedies of this kind.
Their campaign took them all over Arizona, and their efforts were supported by city councils of medium-sized Arizona cities such as Tucson. Then-Governor Jane Hull also joined them in their cause. After the Arizona legislature failed to pass the law twice in 1999, it finally received both state senate and state house approval in April 2000, and was enacted in that July. The NRA supported the law and worked in cooperation to form the 'Shannon's Law'
Naw, that would be a crumy place to end it, that is with no logic in the statement. Freedom comes from a governed society where right are protected. You have a right not to be encroached upon. A morter going off over your head is heavy encroachment.
I went out at 10:15 last night to reel in the sprinklers, and an astonishingly loud and percussive firework went off at a low altitude the next street over. When I went back inside, my left ear was ringing. There were more of the same, but at least I was inside for those. I also thought it was weird that the air smelled not just of sulphur, but also of burning hair.
A mortar overhead is just crazy.
Freedom is inherent. It goes away when oppression occurs. When oppression is absent, freedom flourishes naturally.
Fireworks are to mortars
as a rock in my yard is to Mount St. Helens.
Same material. Much less potential.
Sure, fireworks can be dangerous, but so can rocks. Very unlikely that either one will destroy your house. A bottle rocket overhead certainly can be annoying, but it’s not encroachment.
Liberty is messy. A few days' worth of booms don't really bother me. Loud car stereos are more offensive to me, but somehow, I cope with it.
Either it's illegal or it's not. If it's illegal, I have no sympathy for someone who feels aggrieved by that, because there's no case you can make.
