A man was hit in the head by a stray bullet Friday night as hundreds were celebrating a new Buddhist temple in Charlotte, North Carolina. According to WSOC-TV, the bullet travelled down through the tent, striking a vendor who was cooking food.

Police said they believe someone from outside of the area shot a gun in the air.

    It’s not rocket science, you don’t shoot a gun in the air.

      Not to really mean to pick on you, but that kinda does fall under rocket science.

        Thanks for the chuckle. In my opinion, you are BOTH correct. Ballistics is like rocket science. Being stupid enough to fire a gun in the air—not so much.

        Bwahaha, its a thing here in KC.An 8 year old was killed a couple of years ago on the 4th of July. No, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know you should do so. 🙂

      Well, in all honesty, rocket science is a mystery to those freedumb lovers.

      Hey…they have trouble understanding why tides come in and tides go out.

      Can’t explain that.

      Gravity is a foriegn concept to them.

    I was just told by my sister in Florida that a “celebratory bullet” went through the rear window of their car as they were stuck in traffic on the way home from the home of a friend. It made a clean hole and was found on the back seat. The cops said it looked like a 9mm slug.

    Idiots and their guns in America.
