A man attending a Nevada screening of The Bourne Legacy managed to shoot himself during the film.

The 56-year-old man had settled down with about 30 other people to watch the movie when the gun he was carrying accidentally discharged and fired a bullet in to his posterior. Apologizing to shocked cinema-goers, the man stood up and made a hasty retreat from the building. While he did have permission to be carrying a concealed weapon he now faces charges for firing the gun in a theater.

"It is illegal in Nevada, a misdemeanour, to either intentionally or negligently discharge or cause the discharge of a firearm in a theatre," said Sparks City Attorney Chet Adams.

"A 56-year-old man who shot himself in the buttocks when his gun fell from his pocket at a US cinema could be charged by police."

This reminds me of a Police officer in my hometown who managed to shoot himself in the butt while getting into his cruiser. He never lived it down either. I think they called him "lefty" for awhile, not sure why... And the general who shot himself sticking the Colt .45 in his belt.. oh no, that was a different story, the Army uses Berettas since then....

Bet his fellow cinema goers weren't amused (at first). You gotta wonder how many folk needed a change of pants and it's lucky no one had a heartache.

I can't really say that I blame him for bringing a handgun with him to a theatre, especially after the fiasco in Denver.

I can't really say that I blame him for bringing a handgun with him to a theatre, especially after the fiasco in Denver. I felt the same after this incident.... "A naked man wielding a 3 ft (91 cm) Samurai sword burst into St Andrew's Roman Catholic church in Thornton Heath, Croydon, during Sunday Mass.The man indiscriminately attacked parishioners - injuring four of them critically - before he was overpowered by members of the congregation." http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/november/28/newsid_2527000/2527805.stm ..unfortunately my fellow parishioners at our local Church object...

Boy, I guess he really had to get the lead out to leave that movie.
