More than 20 women and children have died and dozens others were injured when traditional celebratory gunfire at a Saudi wedding brought down an electric cable causing a fire to break out.  A total of 23 people – believed to be mostly women – were electrocuted when bullets caused the high-voltage power line to fall on to a metal door at the wedding in eastern Saudi Arabia.

Wow, who ever would have thought something bad would come from dozens of guys firing automatic weapons into the air?  Seems perfectly safe. *eye roll*

Typical that only women and children would have died.  I hope those guys think about that every day for the rest of their lives.

Two great past examples of Saudi’s cheating death with firearms can be seen HERE and HERE.

Thoughts?

Not a single f**k was given:

Safety is the last thing on their minds.   Lots of AKs… short barreled ones, underfolders etc… I even spot chrome and gold ones!  Nice looking place, and they keep their cars clean too.  It’s amazing no one died.  Can you imagine how much of a damper that would put on the celebration?

It’s a wedding right?  Where are the girls at?  Maybe they were smart and didn’t want anything to do with the shenanigans?

A member of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the Saudi religious police known locally as the Hai’a, asked the couple to confirm their identities and relationship to one another, as it is a crime in Saudi Arabia for unmarried men and women to mix.

For unknown reasons, the young man collapsed upon being questioned by the cop.

According to the Saudi daily Okaz, the woman then allegedly laid into the religious policeman, punching him repeatedly, and leaving him to be taken to the hospital with bruises across his body and face.

LOL she took care of business. Good for her, it must suck to have such ass backwards rules like they have over there.

Should the woman be charged, she could face a lengthy prison term and lashings for assaulting a representative of a government institution.

Sadly, being a male dominated society she will probably get the book thrown at her.

Wow.. These guys look like they are from the future with those googles.

Lets see… HK G36C rifles, handguns likely Glocks or HKs in the drop leg holster by the looks of it, Optics.. Aimpoint comp M4 with the 3x magnifier.  Elbow pads, but no kneepads.

The best part is that the guy right in front obviously didn’t get the memo about putting your pant stirrups inside your shoe not outside, so he managed to break one of his :(
