They actually have public service announcements informing people not to shoot into the air on New Years Eve!

I can't wait for the threads about people shooting into the air on New Years. Maybe someone will even post a pic of it being done and we can all join in on the fun.

We have to hope the miscreants fire perfectly straight up into the air.

I have a backyard range of sorts, so I usually just put a few into the dirt every year. I'm sure somebody thinks I'm "shooting into the air", but fuck 'em.

We don't tend to have that problem around here. I think it's because people tend to be one of two things: gun-hating libtards, or gun-loving folk who know how to not be dumbasses.

Ah, I see what you're getting at.

What I meant is, *if* they fire the round straight up, it won't come back down at a velocity sufficient to kill anyone. (Why do I feel like I'm opening a can of worms, here?)

This is different from when I say I hate the north, because I have actually been there.

Apparently, no one has a sense of humor or noticed the emoticon after what I said. By the way, the federal government had a lot to do with the clusterfuck that was Katrina, and many people forget, Rita. That was an unprecedented 1-2 punch from mother nature.
Since that has never happened to any other state, including where the fuck ever blue_suiter is from, who's to say how anybody's state government would do. I don't depend on the state government to help me, and I hope you don't either. No, not everyone from Louisiana is trash, ignorant, corrupt or whatever the media and your friends who have never been here say. We are proud people, just like those people who say, "Don't mess with Texas" or "Fuck you, we're from Texas."
Texans and Louisianians have been ribbing each other since ten years before dirt. Get over it.

The reason for those PSAs is we have too many stupid immigrants...including those from other states.

Here is the skinny on bullets. They travel far. Even the lowly .22 long rifle will go well over a mile.

Anyone who has any responsibility knows not to fire a firearm into the air unless they know where the bullet will land. And likewise on handling of firearms when drinking is a definite no-no. But morons who have more cash than common sense will also not pay attention to any PSAs.

We still have people thrown from their vehicles because they refuse to wear seatbelts. We still have idiots that drown when their vehicle is swept from the roadway in floodwaters. We still have people who drive drunk. Short of mandating an IQ test to be allowed to leave one's house, we cannot protect the dumb.

Anyhow, must have been a PSA paid for by an anti-gun group.

Only good man to come out of Texas was John Bell Hood. The one good thing about Texas is the surf fishing. Otherwise its one ugly-ass state. It just don't look right. The people act kinda funny too. Oh well its quickly being asorbed back into Mexico anyway. I bet the Mexican police won't let them shoot into the air during that SeekO-D-My-O thing. AMF

Yeah, and Chester Nimitz and Audie Murphy weren't anything special.

+ 1000 on Texas women. Best ladies in the world.


Texas Women
Hank Williams, Jr.

I've got some fond memories of San Angelo, and I've seen some beauty queens in El Paso, but the best lookin women that I've ever seen, have all been in Texas and all wearin jeans

I'm a country plowboy, not an urban cowboy, and I dont ride bulls but I have fought some men, drive a pickup truck, trust in God and luck and I live to love Texas women.

I thought I'd seen beauty in faraway places, till I looked upon those Houston faces, spent Hollywood nights up in Beverly Hills, but they werent nothin like one night down in BROWNSVILLE

I'm a country plowboy, not an urban cowboy, and I dont ride bulls but I have fought some men, drive a pickup truck, trust in God and luck and I live to love Texas women.

I'm a pretty fair judge of the opposite sex, and I aint seen nothin that will touch em' yet, they may be from Waco or out in Lampassas, but one thing about it they all come from Texas.

I'm a country plowboy, not an urban cowboy, and I dont ride bulls but I have fought some men, drive a pickup truck, trust in God and luck and I live to love Texas women.

I'm an Oiler fan not a soccer man, and my arms are red and so is my blood, and they make it boil with that soft Texas drawl and I love em all, Texas women.

That is funny shit! Never heard that before. No chips, I can laugh at getting ribbed too The whole Katrina refugee thing just gets old. By the way, no one said anything about the guy who said, "Oklahoma is just to the north." I hate to take threads off topic, but I will defend my home if I see the need. Blue_Suiter's post just seemed a little nasty to me, when I thought I made it clear that I was only joking. Life goes on, I ain't losing sleep on this.
