Man brings shotgun to choir practice

Shotgun weddings were once all the rage in the southern states.  Anytime a guy got a gal “in a family way” he might have needed a little persuasion to marry his partner.

A loaded shotgun carried by the gal’s father generally put the “fear of God” into the young man.  To say that it greatly influenced his decision of whether to stay single or not was an understatement.

Unfortunately, this was not the case at the St. James United Methodist Church in Goose Creek, South Carolina. A man, not intent on getting his daughter married pointed a shotgun at the choir and robbed them.

Who knows? Maybe he needed the money for flowers for his own daughter’s wedding.
