I'm constantly seeing the "celebrations" in the Middle East on TV watching those morons** firing their AK-47's, M16's A2G's and other weapons into the air indiscriminately and wondering how many innocent people get killed when the laws of gravity take effect. It's never discussed on TV other than to say it is "signs of joy." An old Mythbusters (4/2006) seems to say the falling bullets can (and do) kill. Heck, even if they don't KILL they sure could leave a nice welt! http://mythbustersresults.com/episode50 **Disclaimer for the P.C.: The term "morons" is used referring to the act of firing guns in the air, not judging their mental condition, religious beliefs or political preferences.
