If you hear someone popping bubble wrap and really think it's gunfire, that is not technically illegal.
    Kind of like back in the 70's when I was on my way to Greenland via an airplane and as I entered the plane door I saw my friend and said out loud-HI Jack!!!------

    When Obama was in office it was verboten to use the word “terroristic threat”. Now everything is labeled a terroristic threat until proven not to be . . . .except that you can still be charged and convicted of making a terroristic threat if you fart loud enough.

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    I find it amazing that people are so weak minded anymore that they panic at the slightest noise.

    I'd add that this is the reason we need to educate people more about firearms. I know people that believe semi automatic riffles or automatic since they can be fired fast? One told me that it can't just be them moving their finger faster? Thanks main stream media!!

    its going to be very intersting the way that the country is headed when the <stuff hits the fan> and these people think the police (or armed forces) are going to be there to protect them, common sense already shows the police can't protect us now and we are not quite in a civil war type situation (YET).
