    Default Wedding photographer shot dead by couple

    found the news on ninemsn: http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/793...dead-by-couple

    A wedding photographer was accidentally shot dead by the couple he was photographing after he asked them to pose with guns.

    Sicilian photographer Calogero Scimea, 45, was taking the wedding pictures of high school sweethearts Valentina Anitra, 22, and Ignazio Licodia, 25, when he asked them to use some hunting rifles as props.

    One of the guns went off, killing the photographer in front of the horrified bride and groom, and their parents.

    The accident happened just before the wedding party attended the church.

    According to the UK's Daily Mail, the tragedy was compounded as the photographer was standing in for a colleague who was ill.

    The rifles were legally held and the family is now talking to police.

    Always make sure guns are unloaded, explosives are diffused, girls are contented, lions are full, men are sextified, food is made with happy chefs and brakes on bicycle are working..

    This is your 7 commandments to survival in this wretched life..

    to what i know, the US peeps always keep their guns loaded and ready .


    i know little abit guns but dont u have to pull the thingy (dunno what issit called) on top of the gun and that squeeze the trigger before u can shoot ???
    So many steps and the couple still managed to 'accidently' shoot the photographer.

    When I read the title of your thread, I thought the wedding photos are very badly taken and the couple hate the photographer

    I believe wedding photographers in USA will have two more line in their contract.
    "You are not allow to carry loaded weapons during the photoshoot"
    "You cannot shoot me if the photos don't meet your expectation"

    it is sad and funny at the same time. Really a Dark Joke.

    thankfully, most of the local male photographers know how to "CHECK, CLEAR"

    This reminds me of a time during my reservist days....
    There was a bobo NS man. He was trying to be helpful and help my cell to Check, Clear all our rifles while returning our stores.
    This bobo NS man was clearing our arms in the store. (talk about common sense, cheessh)
    I was about to remind him.... "hey bro, dont clear the rifles in the...... *BANG*BANG*BANG"
