Man drops gun in movie theater, shooting self in buttocks - U.S. News
A CHL holder at the movie theater readjusts himself and drops his gun which discharges as it hits the floor. He's now the proud owner of a new a$$hole. At least he had the decency to stand up, apologize, and leave immediately. Our public image is fading fast...ugh.
Dude should be prosecuted. CCWers do need to hold themselves to a higher standard!
I mean... clearly a ND and the guy was at fault for doing it. But, come on. A round in the chamber? I wonder if the writer has ever asked an LEO how their rounds are carried.“The potential for harm is very strong whenever the discharge of a firearm occurs,” Adams said. “That’s something you can’t ignore. Obviously there was a round chambered and [the man] was in a public place. Those circumstances warrant charges very seriously.”
What I want to know is what kind of gun was it?? Anything that discharges from falling 18" is something I don't ever want to purchase.
wanta bet he was either carrying without a holster,to be honest I really hate when these guns hit the ground in public places or somebody has a ND,but I would be suing a gun manufacturer for selling an unsafe firearm

Had he never heard of a good holster?

*** I was told guns aren't supposed to do this...
I would bet he grabbed for it or picked it up & hit the trigger... Would be hard to see where the trigger was sitting in a theater and reaching under the seat in the semi darkness.

The latest story I read says that the guy says his gun fell out of his pocket and went off. If accurate, that says to me that this guy was carrying a gun in his pocket and not in a pocket holster. So, that plants him firmly in the nimrod category. He should, at the very least, lose his carry permit as he obviously isn't responsible enough to carry in a manner responsible enough to not endanger himself and others around him.
