In yet another gun incident less than a month after the Dark Knight Rises Massacre in Colorado, a man packing heat at a Nevada movie theater Tuesday night plugged lead into his butt when he was "adjusting himself in his seat."
"Adjusting yourself" is something you do when you climb out of the pool and your junk is all caught up sideways. It's a glib explanation for the latest theater shooting. But anyway ...
So the shooting was "accidental," according to RGJ.com.
The 56-year-old gunslinger was watching The Bourne Legacy at Century 14 theaters in Sparks, Nevada, when the shot(s) fired.
The dude supposedly "apologized" to his fellow moviegoers, excused himself immediately and went to the hospital where cops later found him. Theater shootings are apparently no big deal in Nevada, because everyone is smoothing this one over.
A statement by Sparks (Nevada) police Sgt. Pay Dyer said “The (man) was cooperative with police and admitted that his gun fell out of his pocket and when it hit the floor it discharged."
It fell out and discharged when it hit the floor. So it could have killed anyone, right? But no big deal still.
Get a load of this from the RGJ.com story:
One caller told police that seven to eight shots were fired in the theater, but police later determined only one shot was involved. “There was no panic in the theater as only five people heard the shot out of the approximate 30 people in attendance,” police said in an email about 11 p.m. Tuesday.
No panic. Hokey doke. What kind of sedatives are they putting in the water out there? There was another f**king shooting inside a movie theater, less than a month after James Holmes kills 12 people in Colorado, and no panic?
It was a legal concealed weapon. There will be "possible charges related to the gun going off," according to RGJ.com.
