This is another lie. Firing a gun in the air is NOT that dangerous if the gun is pointed mostly up and not just to one side or the other.
If a bullet is allowed to deplete and expend all of its initial "fired" velocity in the air then it merely falls, tumbling more/less harmlessly back to earth with very little force and while being slowed and hindered by continual wind resistance.
If you drop a penny from a tall building it does not become increasingly more dangerous as it falls. This is a total myth.
Same thing is true of a bullet that has lost all of its initial propulsion, effectively stopped in mid air and begins to tumble harmlessly end over end back to earth.
