Falling Bullets

Falling Bullets and roof damage

As the New Year approaches, many will be celebrating. Have you ever stopped to think how many people still recklessly fire a weapon up in the air on New Year’s Eve without considering What Goes Up Must Come Down. While it’s not that common to find a bullet or bullet hole in a roof in the New Orleans area, it still happens. Keep in mind, a falling bullet can cause roof damage but also serious bodily injury or death. Finding another bullet embedded in an asphalt shingle roof in Algiers makes me weary about being outside during the midnight celebrations.
