Should people who shoot guns in the air in an urban setting be charged with attempted murder, or voluntary manslaughter?
Should people who shoot guns up in the air on New Years, 4th of July, etc be charged with attempted murder or voluntary manslaughter? While talking with a friend on how we stayed save celebrating New Years he said he heard a breaking news story from LA County of a man being struck in the head minutes after New Years by a bullet someone, somewhere shot into the air. Needless to say he did not survive. People who shoot guns off in urban areas has to know that bullet is not going to evaporate or go into orbit, it will eventually come down somewhere, so those foolish enough to get caught doing it shouldn’t they be charged with attempted murder or at least attempted voluntary manslaughter?
