Not 10 minutes ago, I heard the pop, pop, pop, of small arms in my neighborhood. I live in Smith Flat. I believe I will fully endorse the concept of “law-abiding, responsible gun ownership” when I never hear weapons discharged every New Year’s Eve or Fourth of July again. I guarantee the idiot doing this is a card-carrying member of the NRA and feels he’s confident in his use of weaponry in a “law-abiding” way.
Whenever I hear this kind of lunacy I think back to an 8-year-old girl in San Jose, about 30 years ago, who died when some moronic gun owner fired his weapon in the air and the slug came back to Earth in this little girl’s skull. That same weekend I found a .30 caliber slug in an alley that I and my children often used to go to the store. I sold my weapons that week and have never owned one since.
