    Just to ease the minds of people saying it is dangerous, think how high the shots fly. First they will be slowed by air and also they will be blown very far off course by wind and the bullet-spin (caused by the threading in the barrel)
    It doesn't matter if they're blown off course, we're thinking about people in general. I doubt this wedding with all those expensive cars and such was in the middle of a small village. This happened in a city and damage can easily be done by the bullets falling back down to earth.

    7.62 will fly nearly 2km into the air before it starts coming back down, at 70m/s. They can actually penetrate the skull


    And here's how it can get even MORE dangerous!

    There's no way they are firing blanks. Blanks are expensive and pointless and gum up the guns, the Saudi's wouldn't waste their time with blanks.

    I seriously have to wonder how many people were effected by the falling shots.

    Edited:



    As said, they actually proved they were lethal, but it was conditional. They busted it, yes, but only if the gun was fired in a perfect vertical line.
    I swear there was a news story a couple years ago where, over here in the US, some guy shot a rifle in the air and the bullet came down and killed an Amish girl riding on a horse and carriage 3 kilometers away.
