    anyone remembera bay area industrial metal bamd called machinehead? Well, they had a song called 'davidian', and one of the lyrics was 'let freedom reign with a shotgun blast'... Well, i live in commieliberal ireland, but if i lived in the us of christ-damn a, i'd spend all day every day firing a shotgun in the air and screaming 'freedom!!!'


    dont tread on me, liberals. Dont tread on me from sea to shining sea.

    It makes me happy to know that Wal-mart makes their business decisions with the thought of, "How do we stick it to the libs?"

    Coming soon, buy any 2 DVDs, get Atlas Shrugged free.

    I'd hate to have to live underneath all those lead pellets.

    When I first moved into my current neighborhood, I would hear a lot of gunfire instead of fireworks on New Years and the Fourth of July. Now I don't hear it anymore. I guess the cops finally figured out who was doing it and reminded them of the local statutes against such behavior.

    If you really want to celebrate your freedom like that in the US anymore, you have to live where nobody else does.

    What better way than to provide so much junk to the masses.

    Or as Cartman said when questioned about the wisdom of buying 3 copies of the same DVD for a supposed discount, "Dude, you can't shop for crap".

    I loved it when Cartman's violin got broken, he just said he can go down to a wall mart and get a new one for $5.

    Sadly, firing a gun in most urban areas of the U.S. is illegal. So you couldn't actually do that.

    No idea where he lives, but where I live discharging firearms is illegal. In case it isn't obvious, firearms are dangerous, and bullets could kill innocent bystanders. Even when you fire up in the air, the lead will eventually come down. I'm pretty sure that can kill you (I think mythbusters did an experiment on that, but I can't remember their results).

    Because if you fire a bullet up into the air, it doesn't disappear into space. It has to land somewhere.

    its illegal to fire guns in urban areas? I thought you guys loved freedom. What if im walking through some urban area and a liberal comes up and is all like 'dude, im totally taking your freeom'? If i had a gun id be like'uh uh bub, not on my watch. Ive got a gun, which guarantees my freedom as an american. Now run along to your tofu bake sale', but if i couldnt fire the gun id be all like 'god damn it. Theres nothing to stop you from taking my freedom now. This is like being in a government-run hellhole like europe or france'

    Well, technically i started it.

    Even the most simple one-liner doesn't work if people are badly informed.

    That's not entirely correct. :mischief:

    Just north of Clearwater. And yes, it is most definitely against the law in the vast majority of cases to indiscriminately fire a gun into the air in Florida in suburban areas.

    Even with this law it is still such a huge problem in Florida that a Republican state legislator tried to pass a tougher law, but it was easily defeated by the gun lovers.

    Some of the more notable celebratory gunfire incidents:
