Saw this on Mythbusters. But there has to be very little wind or the bullets will just get carried away. Not that they still couldn't be fatal when they fell...

Should this be classed as murder?

I mean, you realize that a falling bullet, if it landed on someone it could cause serious harm and death. If you realize that, but still do it anyway, that's technically murder in the UK. But, it could also be (in)voluntary manslaughter I guess. Haven't done law in ages so I can't quite remember the ins and outs of each.

At a straight 90 degree fall I wonder if a bullets terminal velocity would be enough to kill you? it'd be close to the same as dropping a coin of the same weight off a building, which would definitely hurt like hell, but would it be enough to kill you? Every case I hear of the gun was angled and the death was like a mile away.

I didn't see the mythbusters ep on this.

It is blatantly dangerous, especially if it's done in a big crowd simultaneously

The distance the bullet would travel (depending on the gun) and the momentum would come down very hard and it would in fact kill you.

And dropping a coin off a building can kill you.

Neat, thanks for clearing that up for me.

It's quite interesting actually. Basically, the bullet would hit you at the exact same speed as it was fired out of the gun, assuming your head was at the same height and neglecting air resistance.

All objects fall at the same rate and once it hit that rate, yes it would, it is also a metal object.

Mythbusters, although good, I don't believe everything they say. Especially as everything I've ever been told regarding this subject has been by Engineers and RAF trained Weapons Technicians.

I've also heard that if you fire a gun directly at someone, that can potentially be fatal too. You just can't do anything without getting into trouble these days!

I think it should. If you're somehow surprised that firing your gun can kill someone, you most certainly should not have been shooting a gun in the first place.

You think it should be classified as murder? It doesn't fit the legal definition because it's lacking malicious intent. I say manslaughter would be more appropriate.
