Context is everything. There are occasions where it makes perfect sense to take a big-ass machine gun from the trunk of your car, walk down the street a bit and fire it into the air. It’s hard to imagine a situation in which going full auto squares with the school run (Russian Man Shoots Machine Gun While Dropping His Kids Off For First Day of School). Wait, I got one! You’re a Syrian tax collector. You’re worried about your sprogs getting bullied by kids whose parents are suspected of being part of the Free Syrian Army. Hang on; did I hear gunfire before the full-auto demo? Even so, it’s still not a great idea to fire bullets into the air you know not where. Or to do so without seeking cover/concealment. Or proper eye and ear protection. And that’s the truth.
