The wedding was a formal one; her daddy brought his white shotgun.

What would be the only thing cooler than getting married by a drive-thru Elvis?

Getting married on Valentine's Day at a shooting range, that's what.

On Wednesday the 14th, County Commissioner Greg "Lumpy" Lambert will be presiding over free "shotgun" weddings at Coal Creek Armory.

Is that not just the most romantic thing ever? :)

Back in the days when I trained retrievers for a living, I attended a wedding held at a field trial. The bride and groom wore matching formal wear in Mossy Oak Breakup camo (ever see a camo wedding gown?), and their Hunting Retriever Champion was the ring bearer. Instead of a unity candle, they shot a unity pigeon, and the dog retrieved it. It was beautiful.

Talk amongst yourselves, I'm getting a little verklempt here...

When I was a little kid, two of my brothers had shotgun weddings. I thought it was normal--families meet late at night, drive across state lines, come back and hey presto! you're married, usually followed less than nine months later by a newborn baby.

So it's about 1968 and you're teaching 9th grade English in a high school just outside Patterson, NJ, and one of your students, a quiet young lady who was definitely not a troublemaker, asks, "What's a shotgun wedding?" Umm... Yeah, I found a way through it. Her face went red and she kind of slid out of sight, but showed up for class the next day. Wonder what happened to that crew? OldeForce

Lumpy Lambert is not someone I would want marrying me. He is not honest, not moral, if knox county only knew what I know and other TN residents know about Lambert and ex campaign manager Robin Daniel aka Butler, Simpson, Laing, Mr. Lambert would not be a commissioner right now
