Hmm. So, we get that there's no IQ test to go to the movies, but maybe there should be. Apparently, a patron at the Century 14 theater in Sparks, Nevada, managed to shoot himself in the butt during a showing of "The Bourne Legacy" on Tuesday night.
Yes, that's right, in the butt.
According to NBC, witnesses inside the theater told officers the gun fell from the man’s pocket as he was adjusting himself in the seat… and it fired when it dropped to the floor, striking him in the buttocks. The 56-year-old man then reportedly stood up, apologized to those around him (at least he had some manners) and left the theater before police arrived.
He later checked himself into a nearby VA hospital in Reno, where he was treated for a gunshot wound to his buttocks, according to a police report. The good news is that his butt injury is not considered to be life-threatening.
The moviegoer did have a valid permit to carry the gun, but the theater he was in is part of the Cinemark chain (which also happens to own the Century 16 in Aurora, Colorado), which does not allow guns to be carried inside its theaters.
Gotta say, that seems like a good rule of thumb to us. So next time you go to catch a movie, maybe just sneak in candy instead of a concealed weapon.
