Drunk men show off firing gun in New Year video.

After the celebrations, the internet is abuzz once more with some videos of how people usher in the new year.

It is a well-known fact that there a gun ban is enforced during the Christmas and New Year festivities, but this law has not deterred some people to still pull out their firearms and shoot indiscriminately into the sky not realizing that one of their bullets might hit someone.

In this viral video uploaded by facebook user Pinoy Pride, a group of obviously drunk men show off firing a gun in New Year video.

View the said video here .

The post is allegedly taken in some part in Ilocos and not Guam as some led people to believe as folks familiar with the language say they are speaking the Ilocano language. Any part of the world, it is never a good idea to celebrate the New Year this way. Let us hope the authorities would investigate the matter.

Netizens were also taken aback by an OFW's post showing her firing off a handgun.

What's your take on this?

I never knew that in some areas that they do this on New Years. I did read in some cultures, the people will shoot off guns as celebration for a wedding.

I think it's a Darwin Award waiting to happen. Guns can kill people. These people wouldn't celebrate by jumping in a rattlesnake pit, would they? Guns need to be treated with the utmost respect, because ONE mistake can cost someone his/her life.

1st, that's not in the U.S. 2nd, the guy in the video clearly has no idea how to clear a jammed firearm or is too 'out of it' to do so correctly. (Booze and guns should never be used together.) 3rd, you don't know where he's firing in that the video does not seem to indicate; i.e., it could be into the jungle or toward the ocean. There's more, but you get the idea.

Here in the U.S., 4th of July celebrations often involved 'blowing the anvils.' What that means is that they took a couple of anvils, placed one on the ground, stuck a certain number of sticks of dynamite on top, then rested the second anvil on top of the dynamite. The object, as I understand it, was to see how high it could be made to go. Let's just say that a few barn roofs (or rooves if you'd rather, both are 'correct' even if the latter is 'outdated') required repair. emoticon :smile:

I saw all these videos you were talking about. This is really horrible as it only showed how other people can defy law.

I learned something there with the Darwin Award. I have nothing against guns and I agree that these things need to be treated with the utmost respect. Thanks!

They are trigger-happy people, having fun without thinking of the dangers that the stray bullets may cause innocent victims! bad bad practice! they should be punished!
