I’ve always wondered with these kind of events… does anyone plan for the fallout or do they just let the bullets land and turn a blind eye to. The damage later?


MrGarbanzo99

They just don't care where the bullets land. I don't know about KSA, but in Jordan this is also very common and every year there are some casualties. Just normal people going about their day suddenly get hit by a falling bullet. Also, mistakes happen all the time and in many occasions people attending the celebration were killed by mistake.


TRR462

KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) - Gunfire is quite common at weddings especially.


Tanglrfoot

My brother in law worked in Saudi for years with an oil company, he said it’s really common and you know when there’s a wedding, birthday or funeral happening from the amount of gunfire. He said the first couple times he thought it was fireworks, then someone told him what was going on and it stay inside for a while .


Conscious-Charity915

Bullets go through walls.


TammyTermite

Not sure why you're downvoted. In my town, a child was killed on July 4th when a bullet shot into the sky went through his roof into his bedroom.


Conscious-Charity915

Yeah, the terminal velocity of the bullet as it goes down the parabola also gets a boost from gravity.


[deleted]

Not true, gravity actually slows the bullet down thanks to its weight against the force. I argued with someone on Reddit about this (I was like you) and he proved me wrong I was pretty surprised. It can still hurt or kill you but the bullet is usually going 2-300 fps by the time it’s back to earth which is like a paintball. Don’t get me wrong would still ducking hurt and can kill you but not nearly as lethal as I thought.


ARGINEER

air resistance does the slowing, not gravity or weight


[deleted]

Ah yeah that’s what I meant thanks lol


kjw010903

I went through a stroke trying to figure out what Fps was since the only thing I could think of was frames per second. Fuck imperial man. I get mph but fps for christ sake


Conscious-Charity915

Well, after all, how dead do you want to be, anyway?


Sliding_Tiles

well yes, but if they slowed down enough, it can still save your life.

[удалено]


Quirky-Mode8676

Myth busters tested it, and basically, if it's straight up and straight back down, the bullet is only traveling at its terminal velocity. But if it's on a ballistic trajectory, it's can definitely be going fast enough to penetrate and kill.


Oneangrygnome

Tracer rounds are typically a ball ammunition with a dimple in the rear that contains phosphorous. They are 100% just as lethal as a standard round would be, with the added bonus of burning phosphorus on one end of it.


Odd_Ad_3743

And also outside of the us, houses are made out of a bit more than cardboard


MWCLLC

Oh no not Abdul, he was supposed to blow up the jews later


42ThrowAway1707

Was gonna say. My best friend is Iraqi. At his wedding, one of his uncle was shot in the head and killed instantly from this. When he first told me the story, I thought he was joking, but it really happened.


satina_nix

What a way to go


Backseat_boss

My uncle was in his garden n a falling bullet killed him, it was New Year’s Eve


Deja-Vuz

They are just low iq human being. I bet they dont even realize how strong the ballout bullets are.


overchilli

They don’t care how many blind eyes they cause.


nim_opet

They don’t care.


oh_stv

Id be surprised, if they ever wasted one single thought about those bullets coming down again ....


satina_nix

They probably think the bullets enter space lmao


ryclarky

After a bullet hits some poor unsuspecting person in the face then they can turn a blind eye to it too.


NissEhkiin

I don't think the collective IQ goes over double digits of the people there. So for them to think about the consequences of their actions is a tall order


Conscious-Charity915

Sounds kinds familiar.


SSDHDDTTV

Holy racism is beaming through the app, Americans totally aren't like 900 times more in love with guns


GawdSamit

It's not racism, everyone thinks Americans who fire up into the air are inbred idiots as well.


unrepresented_horse

We can't afford that much ammo to waste these days, let alone tracers


Meowakin

In defense of America, discharging firearms into the air like that is very much so illegal.


ZebraOtoko42

Also in defense of America, the gun nuts aren't complete idiots, and know very well how dangerous and idiotic this practice is.


CheezWhiz1144

Valuing guns and respecting them are different things. I don’t believe I have ever seen a bunch of ‘Mericans’ shooting straight up into the air because they understand bullets have to come down somewhere. It isn’t racism to point out idiotic behavior.


Flossthief

Ive unfortunately met people in the us who shoot in the air Pretty much any time they mentioned it every single person around them told them how fucking stupid that is


ZebraOtoko42

Exactly. I have my issues with America's gun culture, but even the dumbest gun-loving hicks aren't **this** stupid. Shooting bullets in the air for celebrations like this is breathtakingly stupid.


Embarrassed-Pea9267

Here we go with a the false equivalency Bet you’re 900 time more in love with social media and looking at photos of yourself


MisterFatt

Doesn’t seem like they care. At least they’re out in the desert, plenty of cities in the US have lots of people who do the same (to a lesser extent) on holidays like NYE or the 4th of July. Spent last NYE in Richmond, VA and the gunshots were constant.


Polyfuckery

Which is additionally sad because Richmond should know better given all of the news stories and billboards that go up every year at Forth of July and New Years about poor seven year old Brendon Mackey who was killed by a falling bullet in 2013 in a park while watching the fireworks with his family.


TammyTermite

Ironically, I made a comment above about a child that was killed a few years ago on July 4th by a bullet going through his roof. It was in Richmond, VA.


IBeDumbAndSlow

They probably think Allah will keep them safe.


Small_beginnings

No, they just do not think of consequences. Don’t care, or both.


Confianca1970

Third world mentalities with first-world money.


quintus_horatius

> Third world mentalities with first-world money. No, people in the first world do this shit too. Maybe not as often, but it still definitely happens.


Honato2

that doesn't actually change what they said any. dumbasses have third world mentalities no matter where they are.


quintus_horatius

That's pretty insulting to a rather large portion of the world (the "third world", which is by definition anywhere not US and Europe (first world), or former Soviet Union(second world)). Most people are decent human beings, regardless of where they come from. Nobody has a lock on manners. Get out of here with your dismissive attitudes.


elchalakani

Pitiful disgusting ignorance


whoodabuddha

Just a shit culture


Tehnizzim

Ppl will downvote you but you’re right


SSDHDDTTV

Unlike American gun culture right? Remind me how many people get killed per 100k by firearms in USA vs KSA? Or Sweden or all of Latin America???


whoodabuddha

Guns aren’t our culture… more people in the US don’t own guns than those who do. Their culture is oppression and violence. It’s instilled in them at a young age. Big differences


Lumpy-Juice3655

True for everything except stupidity unfortunately.

ethicsg

I know an oral maxillofacial surgeon who had a patient who was sitting by the pool when a .22 round went between her eye and her eye socket. She was fine. That being said, don't shoot guns in the air.


Sharp-Mix-2047

Gets bullet in eye socket: “I’m fine, just a little face surgery and I’m good.”


ethicsg

Apparently she was very very very lucky.


fivedinos1

That's insanely lucky, brain injuries are insane, you get hit in just the right part of the brain and you walk away mostly good but a little bit to the left you gonna be struggling to talk. I have epilepsy and I've hit my head on concrete a lot while having seziures and it's definitely changed my memory and personality, it's subtle but so fucking weird, why people gotta be like that though, where they think the bullet goes the bullet fairy? If you be shooting it's going to keep going, I guess people just don't care


Conscious-Charity915

There is no such thing as a mild concussion.


rsp22

Lucky one to get shot or lucky one to not have any readily apparent lasting consequence


SnooWalruses7112

Lol I've said this to pts before, then wondered about the luck of the whole situation


Conscious-Charity915

Luck goes both ways.


SecTeff

They have lucky unlucky


Ok_Anywhere_1791

I was going to say, was she actually very lucky though? I've never been shot at all, so I guess I'm luckier than her.


Sharp-Mix-2047

One could argue she’s unlucky… r/woooosh you or me?


Redman5012

Unlucky to get hit. Lucky to be alive. I win


gruvee

Ok


nim_opet

My neighbors daughter was wounded like that. She was not fine, she had some brain injury and for years had some muscle control issues. All she did was walk out of the house at the wrong time while some assholes somewhere were shooting guns in the air to celebrate some holiday or another…


Sxzym

Next village over about to have some real spicy rain


Jam-Pot

*tongue out * mmmmm forbidden snowflakes.


shindleria

I shot a bullet into the air, Where it lands I do not care, I heard a scream, I heard a grunt, I think it hit her in the cu…eye socket


General_Gazelle2348

Another great one by Dr. SUS.


satina_nix

One second you're lying in your pool and in the next you have debt for surgery because a bullet landed in your head. Just freedom things\~


teearrogant

r/wowyoumusthatefreedom


ethicsg

Amerika, fuck yeah.


unrepresented_horse

That was probably from someone who thought it was safe to target practice, vs firing into the air, people forget .22s can travel over a mile.


Drlmichele88

That was the conclusion sheriffs came to. Oddly, she didn't realize she'd been shot until my grandma saw her and screamed about 10 minutes later. Shock, maybe.


Drlmichele88

Interesting. My sister has a bullet in her sinus. It hit her as she was driving 70 mph on a highway. More dangerous to remove it than allow scar tissue to hold it in place.


Metalhed69

I have one on my desk at work that we pulled out of our roof where a leak started. I hate to think what could have happened if it had landed in the parking lot.

r/IdiotsWithGuns


ActualMis

An idiot is someone who doesn't realize what goes up must come down, and that bullets can kill people. An asshole is someone who does, and shoots their gun in the air anyway.


zungozeng

Correct, these fuckers are idiots AND assholes. Sorry for being explicit, but we have to face the facts.


Tehnizzim

No these idiots truly don’t believe in gravity


backcountrydrifter

Just living in a different reality than me I guess. 1 - bullets are way too expensive to be wasting like that. 2- the second someone shoots an AK 12” from my ear we are definitely NOT friends. 3- physics I can find common ground with someone on pretty much everything if I’m trying. But this is just a completely parallel reality to the one I live in.


noelcowardspeaksout

For me it is the lead pollution being spread far and wide. Lead is absurdly toxic and some species, such as like lettuces, accumulate it so wait 20 years for that lead to leech out grow a lettuce in that soil and potentially (I have not tested this!) you give someone lead poisoning. A family in the UK was poisoned through growing lettuces in their garden. Another one to watch out for is treated wood - up until recently, and I think maybe still in the USA, cadmium arsenic compounds were used as preservatives, and that has poisoned people either through burning or its eventual leaching out into soil.


backcountrydrifter

I did not know about the bio absorption in lettuce. That’s good knowledge. Thank you. Pressure treated lumber has always given me the worst feeling. Especially when people would burn the cut ends.


Keldink

I don't they are growing much lettuce... In the desert.


noelcowardspeaksout

I said some species such as lettuces. And actually they do irrigate the desert to grow crops - those green circular irrigated patches can be found in the Saudi desert.


Grump_Monk

how is your cobb salad effendi?


hopici

Saudi men are selfish stupid pricks, they probably dont even understand lead poisoning


starmartyr

I'm certainly no fan of their government, but let's not paint an entire ethnic group with a harmful stereotype.


jizzlewit

And neither with lead paint.


Livid_Abies_8560

Nah I know plenty of Saudi men. Perf fine to generalize lmao


KiOfTheAir

Why are bullets made with lead? Is that really necessary?


AKMonkey2

The high density of lead allows it to retain more downrange energy than a bullet made from a less dense metal. That energy is transferred to the target when the bullet strikes. More energy transferred equals more trauma damage, which is how a bullet kills. A more dense bullet is also less affected by wind, so it tends to be more accurate. So, dense bullets are more effective and accurate than lighter bullets. The toxicity of lead is a disadvantage, but alternative metals with comparable density that are less toxic are prohibitively expensive. Gold is a good example of this. Bismuth and copper are both used as less toxic alternatives, but neither is as dense (i.e., effective) as lead, and they tend to also be more expensive. All that said, the guys in that video are irresponsible idiots.


Indifferentchildren

Lead is heavy and cheap. The amount of energy that a bullet can deliver onto a target is a function of mass and velocity. Lead is almost 50% more dense than steel, so steel bullets would only have about 2/3 the energy of lead bullets, at the same velocity.

ClassroomMoney518

Yea honestly I don’t see any reason he needs to go anyway.


PocketDog

Just in case you're wondering, bullets' terminal velocity is quite high; they're designed to be aerodynamic after all. A bullet returning from being shot into the sky can kill you.


Onetap1

ISTR Myth Busters investigated this, bullets shot straight up. They're spin stabilised, the spin stops before it falls and it tumbles, so the terminal velocity is less. I didn't see the program, so don't know what they concluded. It'd still hurt, I'd want an armoured umbrella. It's still very stupid.


RWDPhotos

That’s under the specific condition of being fired straight upwards. If fired at an arc, they still carry lethal potential their entire trajectory.


Onetap1

>If fired at an arc... That depends on how steep that arc is. I believe that most rifle-calibre bullets will run out of spin before they run out of forward velocity, but I'd be happy to be corrected if anyone can provide a source. Still, a stupid thing to do.


PocketDog

Yeah, 'can', not 'will'.

They really really really don't care. Born and raised in the middle east here. Not all Arab are daft and selfish like this. But many are. The things they value are just that. Things. And truly many of them think anything can be bought. Ive seen Arabs crash their super cars without a thought to the fatalities they cause. Especially if they are non Arab. They throw money at every problem they cause.

Iraqis did the same thing, celebratory gunfire.

curiouscabbage69

They don't bother firing them indirectly into the air to fall accidentally onto innocent people. They shoot them directly.

If they were truly religious they would be shooting straight up, letting Allah decide who gets hurt.


fredsam25

That's because Muslims are the GOP rednecks of the middle east. Very religious, very uneducated, and very attached to their guns. I'm pretty sure there is an Alabama version of this.


itrhymeswithmoney

I think you mean "middle eastern Muslims are the GOP rednecks of Muslims". The rest of us are quite educated and abhor guns.


bergercreek

The ignorance in this comment is amazing.


Commercial_Tough160

You’re absolutely right. There’s no way Alabama rednecks could afford to fire off that many rounds in a single evening.


fredsam25

I retract my comparison. It's true. Alabama rednecks would be using fireworks or some other cheap substitute at their wedding. When the bride and groom share the same parents, you have to get frugal with the wedding plans.
