Man Shoots Self In Buttocks During ‘Bourne Legacy’ At Movie Theater

A man inadvertently fired upon himself while shifting in his seat during a movie about guns, less than a month after another, far more tragic shooting during a different movie about guns. Via the Huffington Post:

Police say a man accidentally shot himself in the buttocks at a Nevada movie theater during a showing of “The Bourne Legacy.” Police in Sparks, Nev., say the 56-year-old man’s injuries are not life-threatening and no others were hurt.

Authorities say the man had a permit to carry a concealed firearm. The man told officers the gun fell from his pocket Tuesday night as he was adjusting himself in the seat and that it discharged when it dropped to the floor.

Authorities say the case will be sent to the city attorney for possible charges. The incident comes less than a month after a shooting at a suburban Denver theater that left 12 dead and 58 injured.

    He must have ran out of blues and greens before he went to the movie.

    We need “gun-movie” control!

       ‘Merkins would give-up their guns before they ever banned violent, gun filled movies.

      Most don’t give two shits about their civil rights,
      but you F with their entertrainment and you’re toast.

        ” ‘Merkins would give-up their guns before they ever banned violent, gun filled movies.”

        Bitch, please, the only civil right Americans do give a shit about is their firearms, especially when the 2nd Amendment is the only Amendment the “strict constructionist” U.S. Supreme Court has ruled consistently in favor of more than “Congress [not making] laws abridging freedom of speech.”

          well my Deep Throated fiend
          47% of Merkins own guns
          and 99.999% are addicted to entertrainment

          every state has differing guns laws
          but none is powerful enough to ban violent entertrainment
          and why would they want to?
          it trains the sheeple on how to use guns against each other

            So “The Bourne Legacy” is literally teaching people to shoot themselves in the ass? Yet another government program that has fucked up royally, wouldn’t you say?

            The Born Legacy is
            being born into a system and having to fight one’s way out

            systems exist for their own sake of being
            (archetypes of the collective unconscious)
            they don’t care what happens to the fools caught in them
            shootings in the ass are par for the system’s course
            “The Bourne to be a fool Legacy”

            Meh, I’m not worried, because, vis a vis, there is no spoon.

            I liked Baudrillard’s take on that:
            The Matrix is the kind of movie the Matrix would make.

    What!  Why are there ‘permits’ for concealed firearms! 

    • http://hormeticminds.blogspot.com/ Chaorder Gradient

      um…. yes….? point being?

  • Bushcree

    Gun control is not the problem..Gangs get guns…A bigoted moronic cop has a gun…Scared store owners have guns..Fear mongering from the ill informed is precisely the environment this person and those “for control” clash. Isolated incidents (caused by ignorance) always brings blanket statements to mask the underling issues.

    Way to go, “Tailgunner”!

    I want to know what sort of antiquated pistol he was carrying that was capable of discharging when dropped; most modern pistols will ONLY discharge when the trigger is pulled.

    • VaudeVillain

      Modern pistols are still prone to misfires, and if he left the safety off like a moron it very well could have been pulled inadvertently.

        This is probably true. I remember reading a true-crime book about a hitman for the mob and he was saying how rappers and Hollywood perpetuate the myth of mobsters sleeping with a gun underneath their pillow. The hitman said this is a myth because it’s quite possible, if you move your head in just the right way, the gun could go off under the pillow. 

        Now I’m open to the idea that this hitman is an idiot who is himself perpetuating a myth, but I’d be more likely at this point to take his word for it than that of some gun-humper with his own agenda on an internet message board.

           I thought the firing pin block stopped that.

          • mannyfurious

            As far as I know, that could be. I don’t really know anything about guns beyond what I read in the occasional true-crime book. 

      • Miracles

        Mythbusters took this on and found it to be pretty much impossible to fire a pistol by dropping it.

        Edit: A proper pistol, that hadn’t been fucked with by a redneck, that is.

      • Apathesis

        A misfire is not the same thing as a negligent discharge.

  • Andrew

    I haven’t seen either, but I didn’t know either the the Dark Knight Rises or the Bourne Legacy were about guns.

    Also, charging the guy after he shot himself in the ass would just be adding insult to injury.

  • Guest

    luckily no one was hurt.

  • Lgwilson49

    Too bad the bullet didn’t tear open his azz to let his brains fall out.

  • Miracles

    LOL enjoy the movie, redneck!
