Kassy Dillon is a staff writer for the Daily Wire and founder of Lone Conservative a small organization that teaches college students how to become writers and funnels them to media outlets. She discusses being one of two known Republicans at her small all-girls, liberal arts college, how she got into politics, and recording the infamous “Trigglypuff” video which created the face of the “campus crazy” movement. She talks about her trip to Iraq last year with a group including an Orthodox Jew and an Israeli Jew (who proceeded to pass out Israeli flags, which is illegal in Iraq), and she and Bridget compare their travel experiences in legitimate patriarchal societies and how oppressive they are to women. They cover Gen Z’s obsession with Ben Shapiro, how learning other languages forces you to think in different ways, and Kassy’s experience winning the ACU’s Ronald Reagan Award.

    Ms Dillon mentioned the hazards of bullets dropping from the sky due to irresponsible, celebratory shooting.  While it is very stupid to shoot any firearm in any uncertain direction, bullets dropping from the sky after being shot upwards at an angle >75° are a minor hazard.  Such bullets loose stability on their downward trajectory and will be flipping end over end by the time they return to earth.  Being hit by one will not be pleasant, but it shouldn’t even break the skin.

    Again, it is very stupid to shoot into the air.  But bullets shot upwards return to earth with only a small percentage of the destructive power from where they started.

    We had a discussion about this at work one time.  The terminal velocity of a falling bullet turns out to be around 300 fps.
