On New Years Wil and I posted about people shooting guns off to celebrate. I got a few e-mails from people (presumably who don’t live in LA) speculating that we were making this up. How could I prove such a thing? The other day I saw a billboard that backed up the claim but I didn’t get a chance to take a picture. Lucky for me, Colleen was able to snap a few shots.
Just in case you can’t read it, it says “DON’T SHOOT! Celebrate the Holidays Safely!” When I tool my handgun safety test there was a question about this, something like “True or False, it’s only OK to fire your handgun into the air on New Years Eve or Fourth of July.” I laughed when I read it, checked false and assumed that was a freebee – apparently it wasn’t and some people think it’s True.
