Was he aiming at his foot?

It takes an a-hole to make an a-hole... an extra a-hole, in this case.


I feel kinda sorry for him though, cos he's NEVER going to lose the title of "The guy who shot himself in the a**".   On a plus note, he joins a noble band of brothers who have discharged their weapon accidently in a movie theatre.  *chuckles*

He probably left the cinema because he couldn't sit, or because he didn't want to get the seat dirty.

I'm just glad he didn't shoot up the cinema cause the first thing I though when reading the title was "oh god not again".

I don't know if I'll be going to a theater anytime in the near future. This is turning into a fad. Everyone's packing.

What surprises me is that Nevada has had enough of a problem with guns discharging in a theatre that they had to make a law against it. Just a misdemeanor though, at least he didn't have a joint on him or he would be locked up right now. Drugs are worse than discharging a gun in a theatre, at least in Nevada. Americans sure have their laws straight.

IDIOT!!!!!!  Why do people carry thier guns around?  Are they really that afraid?????  Does it make them feel tough?  I mean really, how often do you get in a situation where you wish you had your pistol with you?

I don't own a gun but my father does.  He takes it with him when he's riding quads out in the middle of nowhere or fishing, or camping or some other time when it's resonable to assume you may have to take full responsibility for your own safety, but a movie theater???????
