The NRA has consistently claimed that we do not need stricter gun laws — like background checks and safety classes — because their gun owners are “responsible.” On Thursday night another one of their responsible gun owners “accidentally” Second Amendmented a woman at a movie theater in Renton, Washington.
According to police, a 29-year-old intoxicated man entered Regal Cinemas to watch the Benghazi movie “13 Hours.” A witness explained what happened next:
It got about 15-20 minutes into the film, and I believe the lady in front of us that got shot was actually talking to her husband or significant other, and that’s when we heard the loud pop,” explained one witness, who asked not to be identified, adding that he was sitting 3-4 rows behind the man when the gun went off.
After the woman was critically injured, the ammosexual fled the movie theater…because of course he did. Unfortunately for him, his father turned him into police when he found out what his son had done.
According to police:
Preliminary accounts indicate that an intoxicated suspect entered one of the theaters and was fumbling with a handgun he had in his possession when it went off, striking another patron seated in front of him… According to him, he said he dropped the gun and it went off. We have witnesses that say he came into the theater and appeared intoxicated. He went in and took a seat in theater number nine and was fumbling with a pistol when it went off and struck someone sitting in front of him.
Now, I know that stricter gun control laws are not going to stop every single accident. However, that doesn’t mean we should just give up and not try anything at all. Gun owners should know that alcohol and firearms do not mix, it’s common sense. The problem is, far too often we see irresponsible gun owners pulling out their penis extensions while they are sh*tfaced and either hurting (or killing) themselves or someone else.
Firearms do not just “accidentally” discharge a bullet. There has to be a bullet in the chamber for that to happen. A smart gun owner knows how to safely secure their weapon and frankly, if you don’t, you have no business owning one in the first place.
