Woman gets shot in the chest during showing of the movie "13 Hours." Now the conservatives just have to find a way to blame THIS on Hillary Clinton as well.

Courtesy of Komo News:  

A 40-year-old woman was seriously injured Thursday when she was shot in the chest inside a Renton movie theater, police said. 

The shooting happened at around 8 p.m. at a movie theater at the The Landing in Renton during a showing of the film "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi." 

"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," said one witness, who did not want to be identified. He was sitting 3 or 4 rows behind the man when the gun went off.

And how did the brave man with the gun respond?

Just as witnesses realized it was a shooting, they saw the man make his way toward a nearby exit.

Police believe that the man was intoxicated at the time.

Of course he was because who else would bring a loaded firearm to a theater except a drunken asshole who would run away from any responsibility for his actions?

Fortunately the man's father isn't quite the POS his son is and he notified the police:

Police say the shooter's father called 911 Thursday night from his Newcastle home and told dispatchers his son was distraught and told him that he dropped his gun at a Renton movie theater and it discharged. The 29-year-old is now in custody. 

"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," said David Leibman with the Renton Police Department.

Apparently in the NRA's America you cannot even sit down to enjoy some good old anti-Hillary Clinton propaganda without the risk of being shot by some drunk guy.

    You see, if Hillary hadn't killed all of those people in Benghazi, they wouldn't have had to make this unbiased documentary about the situation and nobody would've been at the theatre to get shot. Easy.

      You might want to familiarize yourself with the definition of "sarcasm".

      Hint: When a documentary is unbiased, it is commonly referred to as a "documentary". When something is referred to as an "unbiased documentary" this should tip you off.

      Actually - no, Ted. That is not the definition. A documentary is based on a real life, usually with interviews with real people, not fictional characters. They might involve stock news footage, as part of it.

      Most movies based on real events have elements of fiction.

      But documentaries can be "biased"; they are always based on the filmmaker's thesis.

I'm (mildly) sorry you didn't get that the OP's use of the phrase "unbiased documentary" was an obvious tip-off, and that you wandered off into a lesson on what is a documentary, but I'm not going to worry over the cluefullness of someone who chooses to hide his/her identity—even when the topic doesn't call for it.

    I often wonder if the minds of these pro-gun folks change after they've been in a gun-related accident. It would be interesting to interview the families of gun violence victims after they have had time to process and reflect upon the causes and effects of their circumstances.

    This is what happens when just anybody can walk around with a loaded gun. You're not allowed to shout "fire" in a crowded movie theatre but it's perfectly fine to take your seat, drunk, and play around with your loaded gun. There is something so wrong with that scenario.

    It is encouraging that the father called the police and that the son seemed to show some remorse for what he did. I hope that one of the consequences is AA and the loss of his right to bear arms - anywhere.

    The fact that she was shot in the back, through a movie seat, lends a bit of credibility to what the son said. Irresponsible, yes. Problem with alcohol, yes. An intentional shooting, no. He has to face the consequences, but I don't consider him a threat to society or likely to ventilate a lot of people at the next late shooting.

    Gun policy is one issue. People lacking critical thinking skills due to drug or alcohol abuse or psychological issues is another. He called his dad, which shows to me he had some understanding of what had just happened. Dad called police.

    This is an unfortunate situation all around. But last I checked accidents do happen.

      Drunks with loaded guns in crowded places == "unfortunate situation". Your KID takes the bullet... well, maybe, just a trifle more serious than "unfortunate". Criminal? Nah. Your KID is tough, manly, and eager to have bullets dug out of his body. My kid? Not so much.

      He just shot a woman in the chest, do you know what the health consequences of that are?

      "likely to ventilate a lot of people at the next late shooting."

      Well if he keeps putting bullets in them they are going to get a lot of ventilation.

      Why was he taking a loaded gun to a movie? Was he planning on shooting those bad Mooslims on the screen? Or did he think ISIS was going to raid the theater and he being sober and all was going to take them out.

    10. There is a difference between "accident" and "negligence."

      I would like to see liability insurance requirements and criminal charges filed for stupid incidents like this. Being drunk does not and should not get him off the hook for stupidly fiddling around with a loaded gun in a movie theater any more than driving while drunk gets someone off the hook for injuries caused by their negligence.

      Would you feel the same way if that was your wife or daughter and the bullet ended her life?

      He was drunk, he had a loaded weapon and, after the shot, he LEFT THE THEATER before the police arrived.

      Sorry, but that does NOT qualify as an accident.

    13. Anita Winecooler5:00 PM

      Not to pile on, but are you serious?????? Did the guy ever take a ticket stub to a shooting range? THAT'S an accident,

      Google "Gunshot wounds" in pictures. They're not a tiny hole with a few drops of blood as we always see on television. Then google the term "accident" in pics.

      See? Easy Peasy, just don't step on a crack

    OT, but look at Sarah's latest FB post about the Marines who went missing. She's trying to kiss up to the military now that they scolded her for using PTSD as a political prop. Instead of apologizing like a grown-up, she is, to use her stupid phrase, pussy-footing around with empty condolences.

      What a disgusting POS she is. My apologies to sh**t.

      In a CBS interview that Levi gave after the Vanity Fair piece came out, he said he had only given small bits information on Sarah and that he had much more damaging stuff he could have said but was not going to discuss it at that time. Only hope that if Trump does give Palin the VP slot, Levi will disclose the dirt that he has kept hidden all this time.

    Hey, "shit happens", we're reminded by future commander in chief Jeb!. (giggle).

    Like your arch conservative co-worker, friend, neighbor or relative likes to say: "If it doesn't affect me or my immediate family directly, I'm not gonna worry about it."

    Once the full implementation of the NRA's masterful "ALL GUNS, EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME" agenda is complete - and it'll happen sooner than you think - this sort of "oopsie" is gonna be commonplace.

    Random, accidental discharge of firearms is what Thomas Jefferson or some other Foundling Father called "the unavoidable price of freedoms, yo!" GET USED TO IT!

    Soon, every time we hear some idiot 'accidentally' fire a handgun he had no business carrying in the first place we'll all learn to appreciate it as the ringing of the golden bell of liberty. All of us, except anyone unlucky enough to be struck by flying lead, that is. But, everyone else will thank Jeebus for reminding the original authors of the Constitution to amend it to add "unlimited concealed and/or open carry of firearms for our personal entertainment because we like them" to the document. Yay!

    Or google "dropped taurus pistols" next time you're waiting in line at Wally World for the shithead in front of you to snag his fully loaded .32 caliber semi-automatic strap-on penis extender while extracting his wallet. BANG! "Oops... sorry, my bad"

    Years ago I worked as a forum moderator on a quite large website. One of the members, a fanatical gun rights person, was always going on about his rights to own weapons, and to carry weapons both concealed and openly. One day he posted that he was badly injured, because he had shot himself in the leg. Did he blame himself for careless handling? No, of course not. It was the fault of the gun, because it had an inherent manufacturing defect.

    I am constantly reminded of this man when I read stories like this. The forum member could have killed himself or a bystander, just the way this irresponsible person at the movie theatre could have. It is not an accident, this is willful stupidity in carelessly handling something which is designed specifically to kill things.

      Unfortunately, guns are not idiot-proof. And any attempt to sell an idiot-retardant gun are met with death threats. Didn't the family of the woman who was killed when her baby played with the gun in her "gun purse" blame the manufacturer of the "gun purse"?

    With the privilege to carry a firearm comes extreme responsibility. Anyone injuring another while exercising that privilege should be held accountable for ALL costs to the other AND some serious jail time.

    Killing another with a gun in public, even 'accidentally', should be a life sentence. being drunk in a movie theater and and shooting someone while playing with your penis extender is no accident.

  16. Anonymous10:33 AM

    I know nothing about guns, so my question is the article stated he was fumbling with the gun and it went or he dropped it and it went off, either what about the safety lock on the gun?

    Did he have the safety lock off or could fumbling or dropping it cause the lock to open?

  17. The round was in the chamber and the safety was off. This is not accidental.

    I hope the police examine the scene carefully to determine trajectory.

    A gun that has just hit the floor and is thus firing upwards could fire towards the woman's butt or legs, not the chest. Sitting person to sitting person's chest is a horizontal trajectory.

    It is reported that she was talking, not whispering. My theory is that the shooter intended to threaten her into silence by waving the gun at her, but his finger slipped on the trigger. When it entered his drunk brain that he'd shot her, THEN he fumbled and dropped the gun. And fled.

    The woman's escort may have something to add to the evidence, but the bullet's trajectory through her chair will be damning.

    Perhaps guns should have an "alcohol" lock as well as a safety lock.

      I agree. She had to have been turned towards him to have been shot in the chest, so they could have been having words.
