    I don't get hunger strikes. Sad fact is, most people don't care if someone wants to starve themselves to make a point. I don't understand why sometimes hunger-striking people are force-fed. I mean, if a sane, able-bodied adult doesn't want to eat, what business is it of ours?

    OK folks ... time for a basic lesson in physics, starting with the tried and true 'what goes up must come down.' Any object thrown into the air will, eventually, succumb to gravity, and will return to Earth. A falling bullet is only slightly less lethal and a bullet fired directly at a target. If someone feels the need to fire a gun into the air to celebrate something, cook off some blanks instead of live ammunition.

    Celebratory gunfire is idiocy at its best because what goes up must come down.

    I do not understand "celebratory" gunfire. Your gun. Your bullets. You are responsible for where those bullets go. How high will a bullet go when shot up? How fast is it going when it hits the ground?

    Never understood why someone firing a gun during a celebration doesn't consider that the bullet is going to come down somewhere. It happened in KC Mo a few years ago, when a 14 year old girl was killed by a bullet fired during a fourth of July celebration. Fireworks are dangerous enough, why shoot off guns just to celebrate? Totally irresponsible.
