Shannon and Her Law

In June 1999, 14-year-old Shannon Smith died from a gunshot wound caused by some bozo firing a gun into the air as a form of celebration.

Now we have Shannon's Law that puts extra teeth into the penalties for celebratory gunfire.

Now, reports are out that the amount of such gunfire is down by about one-half.

That's really good news.
