It's just not New Year's in Florida without the ceremonial wounding of a nine year old.

Courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel:  

A nine-year-old girl was shot in the arm just after midnight, possibly the result of celebratory gunfire, Orlando police said. 

Officers responded to a church in the 800 block of South Kirkman Road after receiving reports of a shooting victim. 

The girl, who police have not identified, had just left church when she was hit in the right arm by the bullet, police said. 

Officers have no suspect information because the round "seemed to be from the voluminous amounts of gunfire" happening at the time.

So do these people simply assume that a bullet fired in celebration is harmless? 

Perhaps while the little girl was in church she should have prayed that she did not get shot by some asshole before she can make it home.

    They will say it's a miracle that she was hit in the arm and not somewhere more vital.

    I will say that gunfire on NYE is pretty common where I'm from, and the amount tends to be based on how good the previous year was, i.e., how much ammo people can afford. And it tends not to be from our typical source of these stories (ammosexuals), but more of a metro-city limits type setting, rather than a suburbs/rural type setting. Don't know if that's what this is, but sadly wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.

    ‘Good Guy With A Gun’ Shoots Teen On New Year’s Day For Ringing Doorbell (VIDEO)

    An Oklahoma man will be “pleading the Second” after he shot a teenage boy in the back for ringing his doorbell. Many of us have fallen victim to “ding-dong-ditch” — a ridiculous kids’ game that involves running up to someone’s door, ringing the bell, and running away. Unfortunately for Cole Peyton, an honor roll student at Pryor High School in Oklahoma, one “good guy with a gun” didn’t think the joke was so funny.

    Texas ‘Responsible Gun Owner’ Shoots 6-Year-Old In Spine After Family Makes Wrong Turn (VIDEO)

    ...On Tuesday, a “bad guy with a gun” (who looks exactly like a “good guy” until he actually begins shooting) fired numerous rounds at a vehicle containing a family that had done nothing worse than make a wrong turn, severely injuring a child. The family was in the area looking for a tire shop when they became lost and pulled into the parking lot of some townhouses to reroute their GPS.

    According to investigators, the car’s lights were shining on another car. The occupant became annoyed, walked toward the family’s vehicle and fired nine shots, one of them piercing through the vehicle’s taillight and striking a 6-year-old girl, the bullet lodging itself into her spine. Panicked, the driver attempted to escape as the shooter fired four more rounds at the vehicle as it exited the property. The family drove down the street to a motel and flagged down an officer. The little girl was rushed to the hospital for treatment.

    Road Raging Texas ‘Good Guy With A Gun’ Shoots Woman In The Head, Leaves Her For Dead

    ...According to witnesses, the driver — a 20-year-old woman who remains unidentified — and her three passengers met with a bit of New Year’s terror when an SUV carrying five or six men pulled up alongside them. The occupants of the vehicles apparently argued, leading the men to do what gun-toting road ragers do best — one of them pulled out a gun and opened fire on the woman’s sedan.

    After taking a bullet to the head, the driver lost control and crashed into another vehicle before slamming into the pole.

    Responsible Gun Owner Tries To Use Gun As Alarm Clock – Ends Up Shooting Friend Dead

    ...Gage Bodenheimer was at his friend Nathaniel Thomas’ apartment. While there, Gage fell asleep on the floor. Not a huge surprise so far, because it gets late and not everyone is a night owl. It was supposed to be a nice night with friends – but someone invited the Second Amendment and he ruined the party.

    While Gage was sleeping on the floor, his friend Nathaniel decided he should be awake. Instead of nudging him or speaking loudly, Nathaniel decided to point a gun at his friend and pull the trigger – in an effort to make repeated trigger clicks to awaken Gage.

    Moments later, Gage was dead as Nathaniel – thinking the gun was unloaded – ended up blowing his friend away with the obviously loaded gun.

    Isn't "celebratory gunfire" an oxymoron? A few years ago, a ten year old boy got shot in the head and died from a bullet that struck him vertically, on it's way back down to earth, in the head. The kid was at a baseball field watching fireworks, and ended up dead, the coward or cowards who shot guns that night didn't have the guts to turn themselves in.
