I'm a little slow on the uptake. Can you explain your comment to me? Why would the man want to shoot white people?

Protip #1: don't stick a pistol in your waistband/pocket like you see in the movies. You're just gonna blow off your junk.

Protip #2: don't hold and fire your gun sideways 'gangsta style' like you see in the movies. You're just going to miss and also have the bullet casing eject into your face.

Sybarite: 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.

Why don't we ever hear about somebody being shot in a theater because they won't STFU? It needs to happen frequently.

Yeah, what is up with that waistband thing they always do in movies? I had one of those BB-guns that's a replica of a real gun, all metal, and I tried to stick it in my waistband like in the movies and it just immediately falls down your pant leg. It's physically impossible for a gun to stay there if you're moving, at least according to my experiments.

Used to have to travel to Reno occasionally, and was warned about Sparks. They told me the people there weren't quite right and called them Sparklers.

/no one liked traveling to the Reno office
//it's not quite Hell, but close enough you can see Sparks

Well, you interview 7 or 8 witnesses. They each heard a shot, so you just add them up, and there you go.

Fish in a Barrel: 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?

It can happen! I saw it in a movie once. I bet it killed all the bad guys and hurt no one else too!
t1.gstatic.com

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

There's a thing called an In-Waist-Band (IWB) holster. It clips to the belt and waistband of your pants but as the name implies, the holster is inside the pants, with the pistol, ostensibly, inside the holster. Keeps it from sliding down your pant-leg, too.

My first thought was this was some old idiot who had recently bought a piece of shiat gun with no holster in response to the Colorado tragedy. But no, he has been in the game long enough to have not done what he did.

What a shame.


Also: One caller told police that seven to eight shots were fired in the theater

The ironic part of this all is the old guy will probably be charged, but not that farking idiot.

Right, they also have small pocket holsters too. However, you rarely see people use those when sticking a gun into their waistband/pocket in the movies. They just stick the firearm there commando style.

Actually, an old-school revolver can fire if it gets dropped and the hammer hits the floor just right.

He's talking about "movie-carry," though, which never involves a holster. In the movies you can sprint from the cops, jump a fence, and get into a wrestling match without dislodging the Desert Eagle that's just tucked into the waistband of your track pants.

For this you must have a prehensile penis to hold the weapon once it is thrust into the pants.

That's the thing that amused me most about the article too... I'm surprised the witness didn't claim it was an AK47 in his back pocket too

The Article said only 5 out of 30 people in the theater heard it?? How is that possible and why hasn't anyone any fark consipiracy theorists brought this up in this thread yet??

/and for those of you who don't know, if carying a concealed semiauto, ALWAYS have one chambered, an empty gun protects no one.

I don't think you meant this seriously, but I've seen other comments that did. I really don't see how you could confuse an actual gunshot for a movie sound effect. They really don't sound much alike, and the real thing is unmistakably, incredibly loud compared to theater speakers.

I'm a pussy for getting disabled from a vehicle accident?

Come say that to my face and I'll...well, shoot you in the foot I guess. I sure can't fight you, or run away.

I would normally agree, but several gunshots in The Dark Knight Rises sounded realistic when played on an IMAX system.

Regardless of disability, you experience a moral obligation to provide a fair fight, taking no advantages for yourself, when confronted with an unprovoked violent aggressor.

MacEnvy: 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.


Agreed! Plus what is the condition of the firearm? Guns dont go off when dropped unless something is severely wrong... Even a poorly maintained gun should only discharge when the trigger is pulled.

As a matter of fact, yes. In order to put a round into the chamber, you first need to draw the weapon. That extra second of dicking around with your weapon drawn is more than enough opportunity for someone at close range to take your gun from you, stab you, etc.

If you actually knew how to defend yourself with your hands, you'd be aware that you're at a severe disadvantage against an assailant with even an improvised weapon. If a guy comes at you with a knife or a bat, and all you have are your hands and feet, your odds of walking away from that one are less than favorable. Even if he's unarmed, you're basically farked if he brought a friend.
