A 45 Bulllet Through Our Roof !!!

Sunday morning and my sis calls out to us to show us something awful she had found at the foot of her bed....





YES! That is a bullet from a 45 gun! My goodness!!! THERE ARE INDEED IRRESPONSIBLE GUN OWNERS OUT THERE!!!!


My sis told me that she had heard a thud while she was sleeping, but she thought it was just some appliace that went short...so she dismissed the sound and continued sleeping. I actually went in her room late that eveing when I got home to check on her...and I even turned off her TV.


It was only in the morning when she saw this on the ceiling.....




....my GOODNESS!!! It just missed my sis by a few feet...it could have hit me had I gone in her room earlier!

Well, we thank God for sparing us from harm...but I just can't help but wonder...who should be responsible for this?

I felt that..even if you're in your own house...in your own bed...sometimes....you really can never be safe!

Oh man.. This is just one of the things I totally dread during New Year's Eve celebrations. Imagine getting hurt because someone else wanted to celebrate mindlessly? What's worse is it's not even a couple of months to New Year!
Our government needs to get a better policy going with regard to gun control. As it is, too many lunatics have their hands on one. Heck, come to think of it, too many lunatics are in the police force!
Hay.. Thank God nobody was hurt in your family.

Thanks ruy...yah glad no was hurt talaga. Pag inisip mo di ba...sobrang unsafe..kahit natutulog ka sa bahay mo! And yun nga e..we were thinking of reporting to the police pero naisip namin...malamang nga sa kanila galing yun shot na yun! Di ba? who do we turn to? Sad noh...at lalo na pag New Year....hello practice ba ito? =(

thank you for dropping by...it's been a while since we last saw eachother...hope you're doin' great!

oh captain my captain said...

hi jen, i'm just really glad no one was hurt. first problem is how to identify the "owner" of the gun where that bullet came from. although the area where it came from may be identied, not very specific though, as bullets have "maximum" reach when fired, but i think it's a different dynamic when you fired the gun upwards.

ingat ingat. didi is also hoping we can meet up. sana nga one of these days. ingat ha!

Jen Tan said...

hey jake! thank you for the info...pero siguro we will leave this to God nalang to forgive the individual who is responsible for this irresponsible act. hassel sa massel i-pursue...but we are very thankful that God protected us from harm. ingat tayo lahat dapat.

yeah...let's plan to meet up soon kahit coffee...it has been a while =) tc!!!
