Hurricane Irma Isn’t Scared of Bullets… Obviously!

13 SEP 2017

A Florida sheriff has had to clarify a things after a joke Facebook post got a little out of hand.

Bored Ryon Edwards started a Facebook event page suggesting that people fire their guns into the path of Hurricane Irma to stop her in her tracks.

 The page quickly went viral, with more than 54,000 people marking themselves as ‘interested’ in the event!

Given the large number of legal gun owners in Florida, the Pasco sheriff decided to take to Twitter, tweeting “To clarify, DO NOT shoot weapons @ #Irma,” “You won’t make it turn around & it will have very dangerous side effects”.

Ryon Edwards himself said that things had gotten out of hand and that he now realises 50% of the world doesn’t get sarcasm.

A true face-palm!
