Lebanon NGO’s mock campaign to end ‘gunshot’ weddings

In Lebanon, it is common to fire celebratory gunshots to mark a wedding, a baptism or even a graduation. But, each year, dozens of people are killed by stray bullets. In a bid to lay this tradition to rest, a Lebanese NGO recently launched a campaign that uses humour to raise awareness about the dangers of this practice. The campaign consists of a fake website that offers couples the opportunity to hire a professional gunman for their wedding ceremonies.
