The most recent wedding plus guns equals bloodshed math problem occurred in Turkey. And this jive turkey went down like this: a fellow, fresh off of going from bridegroom to husband celebrated by rattling a few rounds out of his AK-47. And this young Turk was likely of the untrained variety and sprayed down guests when he lost control of the rifle. His dad and two aunts were killed and several others were wounded. Proving once again that guns and wedding just don't mix.
While the concept of a shotgun wedding has been around since, well, before shotguns were invented, rarely do the firearms ever actually show up at the wedding.

Brandy did it a decade ago. Jennifer Garner and Gwyneth Paltrow did it a few years ago. Christina Milian did it just last month.

And last night, Christina confirmed to People what a lot of fans have suspected for a while: that the wedding might very well have been of the shotgun variety.
The officials of Wisconsin Memorial Park cemetery in Brookfield, Wisconsin have decided that it's time to expand their business. With five chapels, a reception hall, and kitchen, they've realized that their facilities are suitable for far more than funerals. In fact, they can't imagine a better place to hold a baptism. Or Bar Mitzvah. Or for that matter, a wedding.

Rumor has it that Jay-Z and Beyonce's rushed wedding was due to an impending arrival. It would be great if that was true, but what would it be like to grow up with 2 massive icons from the same industry? We're guessing not very easy. Maybe their kid will want to be a botanist or a helicopter pilot instead of trying to live up to the legacy.
