Why weddings can be deadly

So, the BBC reports that a US AC-130 gunship wiped out a wedding celebration in Afghanistan because it was thought to be coming under anti-aircraft fire.

Come on, people.
We all know that shooting of live AK-47 rounds into the air is a part of your cultural wedding practices, but let me tell you something.

There are planes up in that air, and they don't take kindly to sharing the skies with your bullets.

In fact, their bullets are a lot bigger, and do a whole lot more damage coming down than yours do going up.

Wedding guests just can't win in a shooting match with an AC-130.

So, until the skies clear of either armed planes or celebratory bullets, this sort of tragedy is bound to recur.
