The annual body count may not reach that of hunters who mistake their friends for deer, but there is still one thing that gun owners do that is dumber than accidentally shooting each other: Firing guns to celebrate a holiday.
VoU2's neighborhood is treated to a cacophony of shotguns and whatnot every New Year, and sometimes Independence Day. Granted, the "no guns" warnings don't seem to be as prominent as the "no-fireworks" warnings are in summer, but should you have to tell someone not to be stupid? As a woman and girl in Colorado and an 11-year-old boy in Florida are no longer here to tell us, what goes up -- like, say, a bullet -- must come down. As for VoU2: stay away from the windows.
