    SALINA, Ks. -A Salina man is taken to the hospital after shooting himself in the leg.

    It happened inside a movie theatre at Central Mall during a showing Friday night.

    Police say the shooting was accidental.

    Witnesses it happened 45 minutes into the movie.

    "At first what popped into my mind was that someone popped a bag of candy or something and goofing off or something," said Heather Myers, who was inside the theatre when the shooting happened.

    Then seconds later, a man sitting three rows behind Heather and her husband Domenic, yells out for help.

    "This guy started shouting 'Oh my God, I just shot myself! I just got my concealed and carry,' and then everybody jumped up and that's when we heard call 9-11.

    According to Salina police, the man accidentally shot himself once in the leg.

    "You could feel the concussion of the shot," Domenic said. "I mean you know being in a movie theatre it's a surreal situation, and I don't believe anybody really expects it to be a gunshot."

    "As soon as it registered and I realized it was a gun, it scared me," Heather said.

    The couple said they support the state's current law which went into effect July 1, allowing gun owners to conceal and carry without requiring any training or having a permit.

    "I believe in protecting yourself, but it is scary knowing they're in public places," Heather said. "I feel absolutely terrible for the gentleman that shot himself, but the first thing I thought of was thank God he didn't shoot anybody else."

    We went to the theatre where this happened, and while the theatre itself didn't have signs posted, the mall where it's located had signs on the doors prohibiting guns from being taken inside.

    Police said no evacuation was ordered because they treated the situation as a medical emergency.

    No one else at the theatre was hurt.

    This could have been avoided if his leg had been carrying a gun.

    Probably no safety, obviously chambered round, 2# trigger and he was trying to adjust the holster because it was becoming uncomfortable.
    No excuse. The shit storm and embarrassment will last a lot longer than the pain.

    Why the hell would he bring a gun to a movie theater? To protect himself from idiots like himself?

    We shouldn’t be for infringing on our rights but we should be for idiot control. How to get that done is beyond me though. I guess maybe they will weed themselves out sooner or later by shooting themselves. The problem i have is this idiot could have shot a kid in the next seat. He needs some kind of punishment.

    Don't go stepping on his rights, buddy. It's a gun, he can do anything he wants with it, didn't you know?

    There was a woman in a town over from me a few years ago who nutted out and decided to just start firing her gun in her house. Bullets flew outside the house while people were walking around and at least one went into the side of another house. She was not charged. This was a redneck filled area, but it wasn't out in the sticks. It was right in the middle of town with houses and people all around. Crazy.

    They didn't know shit about iq levels in 2016. Training and background checks should be a must.

    since people are dumber now, their right to free speech should be limited too. can't have so much stupidity being spouted.


    either way, we already have background checks, and if you're dumb enough to shoot yourself in the leg, a two hour training class isn't going to help you.


    we need iq tests for life. natural selection is taking too long

    Agreed.

    And what's up with all these wingers on about their 4th amendment "right to privacy"? You know how many rapes take place in the privacy of one's home? I dont feel safe when somebody has that right. The 4th amendment is outdated--the framers would have never envisioned all of the privacy raping going on these days. We need background checks on privacy advocates and/or restrictions on the amount of time someone can remain private (8 hour clip capacity max).

    Im calling Sheila Jackson Lee in the morning. :no:
