#HMBlog: St. Pete: Baby grazed by falling bullet on 4th of July
What the heck did I say about firing your guns into the air on the 4th of July?! DON’T DO IT, DUMBASS! No matter how many warnings authorities issue every year, we know it’s going to happen. Some drunk asswipe is going to fire off their gun and almost kill someone. Maybe there should be an IQ test to own a firearm, I don’t know. St. Petersburg police say officers responded to two reports of injuries or property damage due to celebratory gunfire on the Fourth of July and one of them was a two-month old baby that was grazed by a fallen bullet. It’s really unbelievable that people don’t get it by now. You ever see those videos of those Arab dudes just firing machine guns in the air during a celebration? It’s insane and an epidemic, apparently.
Anyway, the baby was treated for the superficial wound and released from the hospital, thank gosh. That could have gone way differently if the angle was just a degree in another direction. “These incidents serve as a reminder that celebratory gunfire is very dangerous and can cause injuries and property damage,” a spokesperson for the police department said.
So, again, don’t fire your guns into the air under any circumstances and if you do feel the need to discharge your firearm in celebration of some event, go ahead and put it to your temple first before you pull the trigger to spare us from your stupidity.
