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.

boozehat: 2KanZam: HighZoolander: Fish in a Barrel: Gotta love the accuracy of witnesses. How do you get seven or eight out of one shot?

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



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.

Right.... "ALWAYS" have one in the chamber.... because if SHTF, the extra .08 seconds it takes to pull the slide back is really going to make a difference after 1) Identifying there is an issue that is going to require this dumb-f*ck to go for his weapon, 2) standup out of a movie theather chair (Given this was Sparks, NV., I'm guessing this was a 280lb+ fat old white guy), 3) dig the pistol out of his pocket (more time consuming than a holster), 4) acquire his target, 5) shoot.

I'm estimating the non-combat suspecting movie goer in this case would take at least 4 or 5 seconds to even get out of his chair. Pullng the slide back to chamber a round would not be a major factor.




It actually does....see above post on my training. We would run drills with snap caps and a person with a knife/weapon 25 feet away from you would "attack" and you would try to get "shot" off. They can get to you ALMOST as fast as you can draw and definitely before you chamber.

And the fact that you think that shows you have handled few weapons in your life

RantCasey: Too bad he only shot his ass and not his head.


You missed a good opportunity for a Butthole Surfers reference.

But it only hit his leg
Well it should have been a better shot

Uh..Uh.....I know what your thinking...did he shoot eight shots...or only seven Well come to think of it - in all this confusion - I kinda lost track my self.....Now, seein' as this is a '44 Magnum...the most powerful handgun in the world...and capable of blowing your ass..clean..-off...you gotta ask yourself just one question....'Do I feel lucky?'....Well do ya PUNK!"

Allen. The end.: Seriously, in his POCKET? Pull his guns; he's obviously an idiot looking to be Charles Bronson.


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, 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.

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.

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.

It usually does. It doesn't cure stupidity.
