PSA: Celabratory Gunfire is Stupid

Browsing through my Facebook feed for the day, I came across this nugget from my local group “ Gun Enthusiasts of Cincinnati.” which shows a local member’s windshield smashed from a bullet falling back to the ground from celebratory gunfire.

By the damage to the windshield, if that hit a person it would likely maim or kill them.

So, please do not be that idiot and shoot your gun up in the air.

    I hope and pray that the shooter was not a responsible gun owner. Thankfully it didn't hit anyone especially a child. Just a stupid and irresponsible act.
