"Wedding photographer shot dead after he asked bride and groom to pose with guns"

A wedding photographer was accidentally shot dead after he asked the happy couple to pose with guns as part of the big day celebrations, Italian police have revealed.
Calogero Scimea, 45, was hit in the head after one of the guns went off.

Poor guy, should have been more careful around guns like making double sure it's unloaded.

And more importantly, never pointed at anyone.

There is not a single thing that is funny about a photographer getting killed by accident. Have some respect for the dead and knock off the stupid jokes.

Indeed. Posing people with loaded guns is a recipe for natural selection.

I hate that the guy died, but he put himself in unnecessary danger by requesting the introduction of the weapons owned by people he did not know.

That's the kind of thing that happens when people dick around with firearms.

Lighten up. If the photographer is too stupid not to make sure the gun is unloaded, then it's his fault he got shot. What is even worse is that the B&G now have to have that as a memory of their wedding day.

congrats culturejam

you're the 1st person in this thread to blame the victim

Cold-hearted individuals often resort to that in order to justify their lack of empathy for others...
