Shotgun wedding?

Title

Shotgun wedding?

Description

Sepia-toned image of four women standing by a car. A man looks back at them from the front seat, and a rifle leans prominently against the door beside him. Flowers bedeck the running board and dash of the car, and one of the women holds a bouquet. Parked in an open field, the lack of context in the image and documentation of its provenance, there is no way to be certain about the events here, but speculation about a shotgun wedding in the offing is not misplaced.
