Our prayers go out to the victims of this needless tragedy.
A bridegroom in Turkey has accidentally killed three relatives while firing an AK-47 in celebration at his own wedding, Turkish media reported.
The groom lost control of the weapon as he tried to fire in traditional celebration in the air at the ceremony in the village of Akcagoze in south-eastern Gaziantep province.
The guests were sprayed with bullets and the groom's father and two aunts were killed.
Remember the Four Rules:
1. All guns are always loaded. I mean, otherwise, what's the point?
2. Never point the naughty end at anything that doesn't need holes in it. In regards things living, bullet holes let the blood out and the air in, and this is A Bad Thing.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you're lined up on target, ready to fire. The subject of today's story didn't follow this one, either.
4. Be sure of your target, and what's behind it. Once the bullet starts down range, you can't call it back.
