What is it with gun owners accidentally shooting themselves in the buttocks? We had the earlier story of someone accidentally shooting himself this way with his concealed gun while reaching for his wallet.
Now comes along another story of a man in a movie theater doing the same thing. The man said “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” hitting him in the buttocks.
Fortunately no one else was hurt. But it could have easily ended in tragedy.
I am not a gun owner but believe that these things have safety catches to prevent them from being discharged accidentally. How can people be so clueless that they don’t engage it? Or are they expecting that at any moment they may be faced with a quick-drawing contest like in old western films and that the safety catch will cost them precious moments?
