The gunfire is not only stupid, it is incredibly dangerous.
The people shooting off their weapons at midnight every New Year are of a diminished capacity, in that they do not know right from wrong even though they may be adults. They have an uncontrollable perversion that causes them to shoot their guns at the midnight hour. Or maybe, it is simply a drunken stupor. Which ratchets up the danger level for the innocents that are sleeping.
The loudest gunfire in my neighborhood was along Ashwood Drive, between Muirwood Drive and the walnut orchard. I could hear muffled gunfire from the Valley area, gunfire from other points for about fifteen minutes. There was also fireworks going of in the distance.
I encourage anyone reading this, if you heard gunfire or fireworks at midnight last night, to post it here and identify the neighborhood where you think the gunfire and fireworks came from.
