That's not fieworks. Happy New Year!
« on: December 31, 2018, 11:02:04 pm »
Every New Year's Eve people are shooting their guns and setting off the occasional fireworks. At 11:56 I heard someone ripping through some rounds at a fast full-auto pace. And there they go again. It sounds like WWIII for a couple of hours every year but I don't think I ever heard that before.

Happy New Year!

Here in Arizona we have "Shannon's Law". It was established after Shannon Smith, a fourteen-year-old Phoenix girl killed by a stray bullet in June 1999. They were able to trace the bullet to an individual after witnesses saw him fire it.

It's against the law to shoot firearms inside of city limits but that never stopped anyone. It happened when I lived on the other side of town too. Idiots around here act like they've never heard of gravity or they don't think it applies to their bullets. Or maybe they do but just don't care. I think that's more likely. It starts by 11:00 because there's always someone who "jumps the gun" and other idiots follow their example.

From where I'm sitting it sounded like it was worse in the township next door than in the city. But sometimes things sound like they're coming from that direction even if they aren't. There's an air conditioner in one  window that I'm in no shape to keep taking out and putting back in. It's like the window is open and the sound comes in that way.

One particular a**hole who used to live next to me liked to get an early start on the 4th of July too. Sometimes he was blowing up M-80s and lighting fireworks in May. ???
