Well im glad i wasn't at this wedding

http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/europe...ing/index.html



(CNN) -- Three family members at a wedding in Turkey have been accidentally shot dead by the groom firing an AK-47 rifle in celebration.
The groom, Tevfik Altin, lost control of his rifle, spraying the guests with bullets and killing his father and two aunts and injuring six others, according to CNN Turk.

It reported that Altin had been arrested after the incident in the village of Akcagoze in southeastern Turkey. Guns are often fired into the air in celebration in some parts of Turkey.

One family member, who did not give his name, told CNN: "It happened very quickly. We all tried to take cover and there was blood all over. We are all very sad right now."

The injured guests included three children aged 10, 12 and 16, according to CNN Turk.

The Sehitkamil State hospital where some of the injured were brought confirmed it has one patient still in the hospital.

Nothing but poor preparation. I spent a good 20 minutes getting proper instruction on the AK-47 before my wedding. If you're used to small arms, the power can take you by surprise.

This is why I plan on allowing nothing bigger than a .44 magnum at my wedding. AK's can be fun and all, but won't somebody think of the children!?

I think this practice should be encouraged.

But then, I hate people.

On an unrelated note - Today I saw the lamest simulation of the sound of an AK47 firing ever.

Oh man was it lame.

I read the entire article. I think it's missing some more details. Isn't the bride supposed to be arrested and then stoned when something like this happens?

I didn't know you were talking about me until Lemmy helped me figure it out. It just made no sense that you could mean me.

If you make a thread about it in Feedback it will get more notice than putting it in here.

Since you're one of them fancy moderators, can't you pull some of them fancy moderator strings or something?
