OK im gonna be straight up. this happened in SYRIA. I'm Syrian myself, and I'll break it down for you. Firing off guns is an extremely common practice at wedding/special occasions, and until very recently, it wasn't uncommon to see someone shoot an AK-47 (or Kalashnikov) at such receptions. Sure it was a stupid move, and while most firing at occasions occurs in a controlled manner in this case, it DIDN'T. I hope this answers all those people that are saying "what kind of father would do this!" Now you know. An irresponsible one to be sure, but by the way he was raised, he saw nothing wrong with handing the gun to his kid.
