Police Asking Americans To Please Stop Shooting Guns At Hurricane Irma

'You won’t make it turn around.'
Police Asking Americans To Please Stop Shooting Guns At Hurricane Irma

It's the kind of headline you may think is a joke, but it's very real.

Two days ago a man named Ryon Edwards was bored, so he started a Facebook event called "Shoot At Hurricane Irma". But what started as a joke quickly gained attention, and soon there were 50,000 people attending the event.

So now, the Florida’s Pasco County Police actually had to issue a warning to residents asking them not to shoot guns at the hurricane. They even went on to explain that bullets “won’t make it turn around.”

Because that's apparently something people need to be told. 

Not only that, but police are warning that shooting at the hurricane can actually be pretty dangerous. They even posted a Graphic explaining that if you shoot at a hurricane, the bullets can come back.

To clarify, DO NOT shoot weapons @ #Irma. You won't make it turn around & it will have very dangerous side effects
