There are LOTS of ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Some people enjoy just having a quiet dinner at home with loved ones, some like to go to raucous parties and clubs, some like avoiding other humans altogether and watching the Twilight Zone marathon, some like to stand outside all day wearing Depends in order to watch the ball drop in Times Square.

Some, however, like to ring in the New Year a little more, um, violently, I guess would be the word — with “celebratory gunfire.” Like, instead of kissing someone at midnight, they shoot a gun into the air like they’re Yosemite Sam or something.

It is apparently a very popular thing to do in the South — Dallas police reported that they had more than 1000 emergency calls about celebratory gunfire on New Year’s Eve, both before and after the ball drop.

The problem with this way of celebrating, as opposed to the others — other than the fact that it is actually illegal pretty much everywhere and thus not actually a constitutional right — is that this way sometimes kills or maims people, or simply scares the crap out of them for no apparent reason.

In Alabama, over the weekend, 34-year-old Fidel Rodriguez Canchola decided to ring in the New Year by shooting his gun into the ground a few times. Unfortunately, a 5-year-old girl got in the way of that, and she is now dead, and he is now in jail on a charge of criminally negligent homicide. Two parents lost their young child, because this asshole wanted his New Year’s celebration to be extra festive.

“Firearms are not fireworks. They should never be used when alcohol is consumed and all proper safety precautions must be taken,” Limestone County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Stephen Young said. RIP Steve’s Twitter mentions for the next week once the gun people catch wind of that one.

In Texas, State Rep. Armando “Mando” Martinez (D-Weslaco) is in the hospital after being injured by the bullet of a gun shot into the air for celebratory purposes. Rep. Martinez was just celebrating with his family, minding his own business, hugging his wife, when the stray bullet came down and got him in the back of the head. Luckily it just cracked his skull and didn’t hurt his brain, but one would have to imagine it’s still a pretty poor experience.

The charming commentariat at Breitbart, naturally, was chock full of glee over the fact that Martinez is a Democrat.

In Tampa, Florida, two people were injured as a result of celebratory gunfire, and police are still looking for the people responsible.

In Georgia, one woman’s home was showered with bullets from celebratory gunfire. Luckily, none of the four people who live there were struck by the bullets, but had they been standing near her china cabinet, it could have been a different story.

In Kansas City, several families were shaken up by having their houses hit by stray bullets from celebratory gunfire.

Via Fox4KC:

When Stephanie Swanson’s husband went to look, he found a bullet hole in their sliding door. The two began to panic as their three young children were sleeping soundly upstairs.

“There was a moment there of 15 minutes, where we weren’t exactly sure how to keep them safe,” Swanson said.

Police believe someone sent a celebratory shot into the air 5 blocks away from their Hyde Park home.

“I’m so thankful that it went through this window and not the bedroom window on the second floor. It easily could’ve been in my son’s bed.”

Across Kansas City, another metro mom knows the feeling. Jamie Moore came home to find a bullet hole in her ceiling and a bullet fallen right next to her 4-year-old daughter’s favorite spot to play.

You see, there is this thing called “gravity.” And sure, like many other scientific theories, it is totally possible that it is a lie perpetrated by mean liberals who want to ruin all your fun and take all of your freedoms. However, generally speaking, “what comes up must come down,” so when you shoot a gun into the air, in order to ring in the New Year in style, odds are that said bullet is not going to just disappear into the ether, but rather will come down and possibly hurt someone or scare the shit out of them. Also, if you shoot a gun into the ground, the bullet could bounce back up and hit and kill a child.

Look, gun people — I get it. You don’t want no one telling you what to do with your guns. You don’t want anyone saying “Hey, how about you don’t leave your guns where toddlers can find them?” or “Hey, how about we make sure that people are not violent criminals or wife-beaters before selling them guns?” or “Hey, given all the mass shootings we seem to keep having, perhaps it would be a good idea not to sell guns that make it super easy to take out 40 people in a matter of a minute or so?” or “Um, isn’t there also something about a well-regulated militia in the Second Amendment somewhere?” or “Hey, do you really need to walk into Starbucks armed to the teeth, or have a gun with you while you drink in a bar?”

But would it kill you to find another way to mark the calendar change that won’t accidentally kill or maim anyone else? Like, I don’t know, counting, drinking champagne, yelling “woo” a lot or popping one of those little plastic bottles with the confetti in it? Normal things that don’t involve firearms? Is that a lot to ask?

    I’m not sure I want these gunhumpers using fireworks after alcohol consumption either.

      I was filling up my car the other day when some drunk idiot drove by and threw a M-80 out the window. Scared the bejesus out of me and everybody else. The station attendant was all like, “Brilliant, dude, setting off fireworks next to a f*cking gas station.”

    I’d skillfully managed Los Angeles for three entire months without a car, and had previously turned down an offer to relocate to Northern California. But when a dozen of my neighbors streamed out into the backyard to fire live ammo into the air to celebrate the riots spreading around L.A. after the Rodney King verdict, I figured it was time to go.

    Buckle up. The next 100 days in Washington will be tumultuous.

    Donald Trump and leading Republicans plan to overwhelm the 115th Congress, which convenes Tuesday, with a mind-numbing array of changes. By the end of April, they hope to have confirmed a new Supreme Court justice, cleared a huge infrastructure measure, and be well on the way to enacting big and permanent tax cuts along with sharp cutbacks in spending on domestic programs affecting the poor. They may throw in some education reform and immigration crackdowns.

    • JMP

      Wait, I thought Donald claimed that he was going to help the working class, not fuck them over and rob them to give money away to the rich! It’s almost like he was a total liar.

      • gene108

        This is the help the working class vote for. Massive tax cuts for the rich, deregulation of laws that keep them safe at work, and a loss of their safety net.

        They knew what they were doing, because in exchange for this, Trump is going to deport 12 million Mexicans, and put blacks back in their place, making America white again.

        • FigaroPho

          As shocking as it may seem to us, a lot of the poorest people who voted for him actually did think he was going to help them, not the rich, and they are pissed and stunned. These are largely people who heard him say a few things that resonated with them, believed it, and did no research into who he really is before voting. More than half of the people who voted for him don’t even want the ACA gone much less SS, Medicare, and food stamps.

    • Resistance Fighter Callyson

      Ha ha fucking ha…they’ll get pushback from the Reeps on the infrastructure plan, a likely filibuster on SCOTUS, and general ass-dragging by a majority in Congress that has been so busy being the party of no that it doesn’t know how to get anything done. Get the popcorn!

  • C4TWOMAN

    Okay, so, I get it, people are having trouble with the whole what goes up , comse down thing. (Hint: that’s why when you fall it hurts). So how about blanks? I really wouldn’t have a problem with people firing blanks. It’s not any louder that fireworks.

    • h4rr4r

      As a gun owner, that is a terrible idea. It will lead to more accidents. Blanks have more powder and are quite dangerous at short range. Worse yet it would be training folks to be even more careless. A better idea is to require training and every negligent discharge,there are no accidental discharges, must be charged as depraved indifference or some other form of criminal negligence.

      • tehbaddr

        As a non-gun owner, hows about maybe you really don’t need one!

        • h4rr4r

          True, most of my belongings are wants not needs.

          I am sure you own many things you don’t need. Some very dangerous.

          Instead of seaking perfection, perhaps we can start with merely improving what we have now.

          If you insist on purity enjoy never having anything.

          Even the most progressive of nations allow for some level of gun ownership.

          • tehbaddr

            Nope! Well mebbe except for my collection of incurable diseases, but I need them!

        • shivaskeeper

          Unfortunately that does nothing to address the problem.

      • shivaskeeper

        Agreed. Especially about no accidents with firearms. No accidents ever, it’s always negligence. Every. Single. Time.

        • h4rr4r

          Yup, and they should all be felonies.

          • shivaskeeper

            I would be happy with throwing everything, felony and misdemeanor, at them up to and including violation of noise ordinances. Negligence with a firearm needs to be painful.

          • h4rr4r

            I meant at a minimum.

            The character mentioned on this page who shot a child is facing a misdemeanor charge last I heard.

          • tehbaddr

            Well that’s his experience. I’m sure you and all other responsible gun owners will have a nothing but a positive experience.

          • h4rr4r

            Statistically speaking you are actually correct. The vast majority of gun owners will not have this kind of thing happen. Just like most peope with a pool never have a kid drown.

            I keep the pool gate locked just the same.

          • tehbaddr

            Well goo on you then mate! Kudoos for the pool straw man!

          • h4rr4r

            Huh? I have a pool. Huge risk statistically to my toddler. Also dangerous to use alone or intoxicated. Lost a co-worker to combing those two mistakes.

            As a person with anxiety issues I make myself aware of the risks for pretty much everything I come into contact with.

      • C4TWOMAN

        Ok, thanks for your response. That’s informative. I’d still think shooting straight up would be okay, but it’s not as if we NEED to be shooting these things. I blew an old fashioned horn made from a Brahman steer. You can hear that a long ways.

        • h4rr4r

          The other problem would be the Brandon Lee scenario. You think these dingbats are going to run a clearing rod through their pistols?

    • Kateaux

      What I don’t know about guns would fill volumes, but I do know that blanks can actually be deadly. Anyone else remember Jon-Erik Hexum?

      • C4TWOMAN

        Yeah, and Brandon Lee. But I think you have to actually point them at someone and they’re only deadly at close range. I too will await an expert to weigh in.

    It’s another reason to be glad to live in an actual civilized urban area instead of being stuck in some rural hole surrounded by crazy people.

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      Yeah. I suppose downtown right in the middle of Phoenix does not count as an Urban area, though. I thought it did. But I always have to sleep with earbuds & white noise because it sounds like a battlefield around midnight on many holidays. Even then, I still get nearly knocked out of bed by nearby explosions.

      • JMP

        In Phoenix, really? I know Arizona has a lot of gun nuts, but would think that the actual cities would be free of this crap as they are elsewhere.

        • theCryptofishist

          It depends on the city and the neighborhood.

  • gene108

    Guns make everything better…otherwise you hate freedom…

  • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

    I posted this on another non-existent stealth comment thread yesterday, but I’ll allegedly repeat it here where no comments can be birthed:

    This sort of shit pisses me off so much I can’t stand it.

    I live in Phoenix and last night I decided, fuck it, I’m just going to sleep through the transition from Suckiest Year Ever to Probably Even Suckier Year Ever. My bladder woke me at five minutes till midnight. I heard gunshots. It was always eight shots, a pause of about five seconds and then another seven shots. Then a few minutes later, it repeated, eight, pause, seven shots. I figured some idiot had an automatic and and two seven-round magazines he/she/it was firing off and then loading more rounds into the magazines, another round into the gun and firing off all fifteen over again pausing in the middle to change magazines. Stupid motherfucking fuck! This is right in the middle of Phoenix for criminy sakes! Well, maybe they were blanks. Ha Ha.

    Yeah, I was hearing a lot of other things going bang as well but I’ll assume what sounded like shotgun blasts were just plain old M80s. I’m too depressed to rant much longer, anyway.

    For some reason at the time I was just too fucking tired to give much of a fuck so I put on my ear buds playing a white noise mp3 file I created to help with sleeping and drifted off to sleep. Now, I’m really pissed off after seeing this article. I hope the motherfucker gets what’s coming to himit. Shit, this is Phoenix, the moron will probably get thirty days probation and five hours of community service, unless, perhaps, the victim was white.

    Happy Fucking New Year! Best of Luck to us All!

    Yeah, I know. I say “fuck” too much. I don’t give a fuck.

    • Bec Jenn

      I still wonder why in the everlasting fuck they made fireworks legal again. It really doesn’t make a lot of sense here due to it being a dry desert. (I’m a second generation ‘zonie). I know we have Shannon’s Law, but like you said, it makes it a lot harder to distinguish, at a distance, fireworks and firing into the air can sound alike.

      • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

        Well, in the US, anything like this is usually driven by one thing and one thing only: somebody profits from it.

        • puredog

    “Firearms are not fireworks. They should never be used when alcohol is consumed and all proper safety precautions must be taken,”

    It’s a pretty fucking good idea to never use fireworks while drunk or without taking proper safety precautions also; that’s a good way to lose some body parts. It’s why, according to doctors and nurses I know, the 4th of July is the absolute worst day in the ER, with all the fireworks accidents on top of the usual holiday drunk driving accidents.

    • shivaskeeper

      Did my tradition bonfire for New Year. Guy down the road used to do shoot his home made cannon plus other assorted home made fireworks pretty much every holiday. He would also set neighboring area on fire because, idiot. About two years ago it was quiet and has been since. He lost six fingers and caught a bunch of shrapnel with one of his home made pipebombs. I’m sorry, not sorry about it.

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      Just a microrant, here. What the fuck is the deal about fireworks, anyway. I used to watch them when I was a kid. Yeah, they’re pretty and perhaps a bit exciting. But they are so fucking boring. They are like drama in a bottle as far as I’m concerned. Now, it’s true I am an old fart, but I have felt this way since I was in my teens.

      I can see fireworks any time I want to, no matter where I am: I just push against one of my eyeballs with a little bit of pressure and there they are. Fireworks! But they are still boring. That’s why I don’t do that unless I have a misbehaving contact lens.

      As for firearms use in celebrations, this is more canned drama to people who live tragically shallow lives. It’s fucking stupid. It’s almost as pointless as watching NASCAR shit, but that’s my stinking opinion. Firing shots into the air with no concern about who might be in their ballistic path is almost, very nearly idiotic as voting for Trump. And almost as dangerous, also too.

      • CatCafe de la Resistance

        Yes, exactly. Canned drama for people who have literally nothing else in their lives.

    • puredog

      I loved fireworks as a kid, the louder and more destructive the better (I grew up in a safe and sane suburb, and all the good stuff was smuggled up out of North Carolina and points south of there). I continued, and continue, to enjoy a good big public fireworks display. But ever since I became a dog person (about 15 years ago) I HATE HATE HATE home firecrackers. They drive my dogs insane with fear. (Granted, they are overreacting, but try to tell them that when they are cowering into the pillows and trembling.)

    Deliberately firing a gun for no good reason is not an accident. The consequences of this idiocy should not be regarded as accidental. PERIOD!

    True story – growing up in farm/ranch country, I was invited to a sleepover, with several others, at a friends house. School had just started the year, and we were approaching hunting season. The friend’s father and another man were practicing archery with compound bows and razor Deer-hunting points. Being fascinated by archery, I was watching, paying rapt attention, when these two grown-ass men decide to loose arrows straight up, and see if they could dodge them!

    I scramble for the covered porch, horrified to see these men laughing and skipping to avoid falling razor-pointed arrows. It’s Agincourt, the Home Version!

    Did you know that the downward path and impact site of a fiberglass arrow with razor-edged triangular points is non-predicable past 25 feet or so?

      too many illegal Class C fireworks here. You can drive 5 minutes to the next county and buy 55 gram mortar shells and 500 gram cakes.

      Kept my dogs stressed until 2am.

        Yeah, but at least around here, the gunshots seem to have diminished with an increase in illegal fireworks. I think that could be a solution. The dog freaks out anyway.

I will be single for as long as it takes to meet the right woman. I think that my record for loneliness was 4 years. Then I had a six year relationship. I actually just got off of the phone with her! I am friends with most of my exes.

It’s not even humor, really, just cruelty and stupidity and trying to make themselves feel bigger for a moment. They certainly don’t understand anything like irony.

    This summer, thanks to a chance reading of a flyer in a Chatham hobby store, I got back into flying model rockets. I’m glad I did. I built and flew my first one at 13, and so I’ve been at it, on and off, for [redacted] years now.
    It’s great fun. You put endless hours into building them, or if you’re like me designing them and running simulations to come up with the perfect one, and THEN building them, and then you traipse out to the field at sunrise and see if you did a good job, and hope the motor doesn’t fail and turn all that work into so much paper and balsa wood, or the parachute doesn’t come out and the whole thing arrows into the dirt at around 300mph.
    This year two club members will be flying their new design. Computer simulation shows about Mach 1.4 and 5000 ft. altitude.
    Compared to this, firing a gun in the air seems pretty freakin’ lame…

  • NerdWithNoName

    Serious question. When you fire a bullet in the air, is it going faster as it goes up or as it comes down? How much faster or slower?

    • mardam422

      Faster going up. If there was only gravity, and no atmosphere, the answer would be equally fast in each direction. but the air slows the falling object by friction. and there is a terminal velocity that anything can reach because of it.
      But the shooter is just as stupid whether the bullet is going up or down. There, I said it.

    • WeaselPoo

      Umm, well let’s see. Say from an AR-15/M4 assault rifle you get 2970 feet per second from the muzzle.
      Let’s say 2970 feet is the height at which the bullet runs out of momentum. From there it falls at 32 feet per second, per second…..so …oh screw it.
      According to US army ordinance of 1920, a 30.06 bullet reaches terminal velocity of 200 mph from straight up.
      2970 feet is roughly half a mile, so muzzle velocity of M4 is 1 mile per 2 seconds or 30 miles a minute or 1800 mph.

      So the answer is the bullet coming down is much slower than when it starts going up. But either way, when you get hit, you really don’t give a damn how fast it was going.

    • Raan

      I think there was an episode of Mythbusters about this very subject.

    • HooverVilles

      Gravity is a conservative force (energy is conserved and would be converted from kinetic to potential then back to kenitic with the sum of the potential + kinetic energy a constant being determined at the moment of firing).

      Air residence is non-conservative (energy is always drained from the system.)

      So, in the absence of air resistance the speed would be the same in both directions. With the presence of air resistance speed going up is greater than coming down.

      ETA: Did you know there’s a Mythbusters mega-marathon on now?

    • Stulexington

      Depends on the angle. If it’s straight up or really close the bullet isn’t able to keep it’s spin and looses a lot of aerodynamics on the way down so is a lot slower falling than rising. Otherwise it’s your basic ballistic trajectory and ends up falling about as fast as it went up.

  • Mike Steele

      • Raan

        Yeah, they took the powder out to make a dummy bullet (used for close-up shots), but left the primer in. Something made the primer go off, which was just enough for the bullet to lodge in the barrel. When the blank was used, bullet gets propelled.

Locked in it’s case, with the ammo locked in a storage box, it’s bolt disengaged, it’s magazine out and it’s safety on. Why? because I’m not a fucking moron. I was drinking in new years eve. If I’m drinking, the gun is locked away. Fucking dipshits.

      That’s because you’re one o’ them “responsible’ gun owners. I bet you have a license for that shit, and took safety classes and such. Traitor to the NRA, you are.

    Funny … I always worry that the fireworks I hear might actually be gun shots.

    Reasons: Ohio, concealed carry and plenty of Trump voters. Enough reason to lock myself in a gun case.

    My Grandma and I used to bang pans at midnight. I found that excitement enough.

      We broke a wooden spoon on a pan that way once, but no one died.

    This shit doesn’t just happen in the south. Here in the central coast of California, it happens a lot. One of my co-workers said he heard fireworks as well as gunshots, and it scared the shit out of him. In my ‘hood, we have some people who really love their firecrackers/ M80s, and I don’t know from gun fire, but it triggers my PTSD, not to mention scares the shit out of the neighborhood dogs. No sleep that night, and work the next day.
    Banging on pots and pans is fun, poppers and noisemakers are fun, but how in the world is it fun to shoot a gun in the air or on the ground?

  • AnnieGetYerFun

    I can’t even. Losing your 5 year-old on New Year’s? Fuck.

    If you’re in your house and hear gunshots, please tell everyone in your house to lie on the ground until gunshots cease. I’m not trying to shame any of these people, it’s just good advice.

      I had to hit the deck at least once a week in the last place I lived in in Chicago. And yes, three of my windows had a nice bullet holes in them.

    For all of PDS’ Christian views, none actually involved the Ten Commandments, specifically #5.

    Or PDS isn’t very Christian at all.

    • masked mumbler

      I’ll never forget the best advice my Dad gave me: every single company he worked with that used the Christian fish symbol were con artists. Any true Christian knows that the Bible says they’ll be known by their actions, not their advertisements. PDS Christian is a modern-day Pharisee.

    • HooverVilles

      What is this PDS? I haven’t heard of this.
      (I’m not sure I want to know, but tell me anyway. Better to be informed. Ugh!)

    Maybe they were all just happy that the Obama Gun Grabbing Police never found their guns. After Jan.20 they shoot all they want, I guess. Making America great again.

    Since kittenhood, my two cats have always loved to watch the kids in the neighborhood shoot off their fireworks, along with the illegal rockets. They sit & watch in front of my screen door. Firecrackers are legal here so it gets very loud for hours. Doesn’t bother them in the least. This year was different. Someone in the apts across the street fired a shotgun off starting a week before NYE. Somehow the cats knew the difference & would scurry for cover as soon as the shot was fired. They again sat in front of the door New Years Eve, but when the idiot shot multiple times, during all the other noise, they left. Yes, anyone that’s been around them, can tell the sound of a shot gun. They’ve never been around one.

    • ahughes798

      My cats know the difference between a gunfire and fireworks, too. Weird, isn’t it. Must be the different frequencies or something.

      • KenRob

        Let’s face it, they’re just simply brilliant. Geniuses really. =)

      Looking at this word salad it seems pretty obvious you’re not being paid for your brainzzz. So, what is it that you do to get paid $97per hour.
      What could it be, I wonder. What could it be?
      Well, at least, your word salad is not up to Palin standards, soooo there is that.

    Yes, this dangerous act must stop! And if you care about our veterans you might stop and give a damn about those with PTSD!
