Be sure of your target

25 people dead from celebratory gunfire at a Saudi Arabian wedding:

At least 25 people have been killed by electric shock in a wedding in eastern Saudi Arabia, civil defence officials and local media say.

Celebratory gunfire brought down an electric cable at a house in Ain Badr village where the wedding was held on Tuesday night, Abdullah Khashman, an Eastern Province official, said.

    Let me Guess.. The Family of the bride opened up on the family of the Groom because they found him in the back tent with a goat???

    In Baltimore, MD, the celebratory gunfire on the 4th of July and especially on New Year’s Eve was quite notable.

    You could count 6 bangs for revolvers, and 15 or 17 for Glocks, and double blasts for the dove shotguns. At least in my neighborhood. An electric company lineman I knew said transformers and electrical wires had an almost magical ability to attract bullets shot by drunken people. I suppose that attraction exists worldwide.

    Rule One.

    My only “celebratory gunfire” has consisted of firing a wad of tissue into the air, when there is snow on the ground to prevent a brush fire, using a charge of black powder. Technically that is a violation of Rule One. So sue me.

    The quote, attributed to science fiction writer Robert Anson Heinlein: “Ignorance is its own death sentence.”

    Moreover, please don’t jump on me for being ‘insensitive.’
    It utterly sickens me that children die because their parents are absolutely incapable of behaving like responsible adults… but in a situation like that, the only really sensible thing one can do is get to hard cover as fast as one can sprint.
