Has anyone considered where the bullets might land? Using a rifle is endangering people for miles around when shot skyward. The local LEO should be going after the shooters for that. Now using a shotgun is another matter, for the pellets may not fly beyond the private property. That is why some jurisdictions require shotguns for deer hunting to limit the range of the projectile. Regardless of the animal rights people, the LEO should be protecting the peoples rights not to take a bullet from the sky.
