Sicilian Wedding Photographer Shot And Killed By Negligent Discharge

A wedding photographer in Sicily was accidentally killed when he asked the prospective bride and groom to pose for a picture using hunting rifles as props – and one of them went off

Full story – HERE

Terrible that the photographer lost his life. As usual the news outlets are touting it as an “accident”… it’s not an accident when you treat a gun as a toy (or prop in this case) and don’t do something as basic as checking to see that they are unloaded and rendered safe.  If the photographer wasn’t familiar with guns he should have told the couple that he was not comfortable that he would be safe, and then declined to do that part of the shoot.

Thanks to Josh T for the first pic in the post.  Hilarious job.

I’ve got this scheduled to go on the Shoulder Thing tomorrow. I’m guessing whoever was holding the rifle was pointing it at the photographer and proceeded to violate rules 1, 2 and 3.

ROFL! That comic strip cracked me up. Sad to hear that people still don’t follow the rules…….

Speaking of the comic strip –

Why’s he putting on sunglasses when he’s clearly wearing a pair already (frame 3)?

It’s part of the meme, poking fun of the fact that Horatio ALWAYS has sunglasses on.
