Can we at least all agree that to get a concealed carry permit one should have to take a gun safety course? Is that really too much to ask?

This isn't about infringing on your rights, it's about infringing on the safety of others through negligent regulation of dumbasses.

What what in his butt?

the unidentified Sparks resident was seeing "The Bourne Legacy,"

It's not a mistake. They don't make mistakes. They don't do random. There's always an objective. Always a target.

In civilized states, this is already required. Entering your typical red state is akin to passing through a construction zone. Do so at your own risk.

Thank gawd for the heroic concealed weapons carriers.
 
2012-08-15 11:23:28 AM
He apologized? Huh. Maybe an armed society is a polite society.

And just how do you propose to regulate dumbasses?
I mean, it has been tried.
Regulating smartasses will not affect dumbasses and the only negligence is expecting someone else to do it for you.

It's good to know that if a mass killer opened fire in the theater, this hero could have been there to return fire and shoot himself.

A nice butt hole tattoo should cover up the scar.

I shot my butt in Reno -- just to watch it die.
 
2012-08-15 11:24:22 AM
Seriously, he claims his weapon discharged after falling from his pocket, and hitting the floor...

This is the guy who has a homework eating dog, I bet.

Two things:

TFA: "The (man) was cooperative with police and admitted that his gun fell out of his pocket and when it hit the floor it discharged," Dyer said in the police statement.

ORLY?

TFA: One caller told police that seven to eight shots were fired in the theater, but police later determined only one shot was involved.

Gotta love the accuracy of witnesses. How do you get seven or eight out of one shot?

Gee, thanks Forrest.

Do you lose you CC permit (or have it suspended pending a retest) when you do something stupid like this?
 
2012-08-15 11:25:47 AM
I feel a lot safer knowing I might be sitting next to a heroic hero such as this at the next movie I see.

Can't wait to hear about a kid being killed during a Disney movie because some jackoff's CCH fell out of his pocket.

Yes. In NC, at least.

You know, there's gun safety and then there are safe guns and holsters. There are 3 things you can safely assume here concerning the shooter's actions. 1, there was a bullet in the chamber/pipe. 2, the gun has no safety or the safety was off. 3, the gun was not in a holster that prevents the trigger from being manipulated while the weapon is holstered.

It all comes down to the idiot behind the trigger here. Or in front of, in this case since he Forrest Gumped himself.
 
2012-08-15 11:28:01 AM
Seriously, in his POCKET? Pull his guns; he's obviously an idiot looking to be Charles Bronson.
 
2012-08-15 11:28:10 AM
good thing he didn't accidentally kill someone
 
2012-08-15 11:28:49 AM
"Accidently"? Really?
 
2012-08-15 11:29:05 AM
Someday someone with a gun will stop someone from committing a gun crime.

Then you'll see why guns need to be easily accessible to anyone regardless of their mental state.

He Plaxicoed himself, he did.
 
2012-08-15 11:30:59 AM
not sure how it is in NV but in MN a business owner can post a sign saying that CC weapons are not allowed in the building. Many states have CC laws against carrying in churches, malls, etc.

did this guy break and CC laws in NV?

Heh, I thought of Kramer dumping his coffee on his lap.
 
2012-08-15 11:33:13 AM
When it happened he should have jumped up and said "Something bit me!"
 
2012-08-15 11:34:28 AM
I guess he didn't have his pistol in a holster in his pocket.

While it is true that business owners can post no weapons signs, they arent legally obligating at all. All they can do once they know you have a gun, is ask you to leave, and if you dont, then they can press trespassing charges.

Most states that have CC laws have a "public gathering" clause, that says you cant bring the weapon to large public gatherings. This can include sporting events, church events, and yes, movie theaters.

/what a Sparks man looks like.
 
2012-08-15 11:37:21 AM
Let's see. Illegally discharging a firearm within city limits. Check. Reckless endangerment. Check. Fleeing the scene of a crime. Check.
I don't pretend to actually know what laws he violated, but I imagine there were a few.
 
2012-08-15 11:37:29 AM
That must have been a really bad date.
 
2012-08-15 11:37:44 AM
Oh, and its complete bullshiat that he says he dropped the weapon on the ground and it fired up at his butt. He put the thing in his pants and pulled the trigger.
 
2012-08-15 11:38:39 AM
Yeah, because that extra fraction of a second you need to put one in the chamber could be the difference between you dieing and an innocent bystander dieing of your blatant stupidity.

More importantly, which way did he face while passing people? Do you stick your groin in their face, or your (bleeding) buttocks?

My guess is that it was an AP reporter seeing the movie.

If only more people carried guns, this kind of thing wouldn't happen.

Pocket carry can be safe. You just need to use a pocket holster. A pocket holster will do several things for you:
1. It keeps the gun in your pocket
2. It completely covers the trigger so it can't be inadvertently pulled or blocked
3. It keeps anything else that might be in your pocket from interacting with the gun (although it really should be the only thing in your pocket)
4. It keeps the gun's orientation consistent, so if you do need it, you won't have to fumble around for a proper grip
5. It breaks up the outline of the gun for better concealment

With all they do for you, and as cheap as they are, I don't see why anyone wouldn't use one.

Yeah, no, pocket carry is pretty common for small guns, and like the poster above says, a proper holster would have prevented this accident.

It's Plaxico Burress' fault. Damn copycats!

Even really cheap pos "guns" do not discharge when dropped.

The miracle of Jesus surrounded her and protected her from the bullet. The sound of the single shot echoed inside the Jesus bubble making it sound like 7 or 8 shots.
