Officiant fires gun to welcome bride, shoots grandson — and wedding goes on
No, this scenario should not happen. A wedding officiant should not fire a gun in any capacity, as it puts the guests at risk and is not a traditional part of a wedding ceremony. If the officiant engages in this type of activity, it should immediately be stopped. If the officiant’s grandson was shot, the officiant should be held accountable and the wedding should be ended as this situation is a matter of criminal investigation.
