Post Man who feared mass shootings brings gun to movie theater, accidentally shoots woman

Dane Gallion was so worried about public shootings that police say he committed one.

Last Thursday, Gallion popped a Xanax, ate a pizza and downed a 22-ounce beer. Then the 29-year-old headed to an evening showing of “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” in the Seattle suburb of Renton, Wash.

But not without his handgun.

Despite a Regal Cinema prohibition against firearms, Gallion sneaked his piece into the theater. He was, he later told police, “concerned about recent mass shootings in public places.” So concerned, in fact, that he kept his gun unholstered and tucked into his waistband, according to the Seattle Times.

Fifteen minutes into the movie, Gallion’s gun somehow went off, police say, striking the woman sitting in front of him. Gallion quickly ghosted out of the theater, allegedly discarding his gun’s magazine in a trash can on the way out. It was only when his retired Air Force colonel father learned of the shooting 90 minutes later and called 911 that Gallion finally turned himself in, according to the Times.

Gallion was arrested and charged with third-degree assault. His attorney, David Allen, told the Times that the shooting was “a terrible accident” and that there was “no intent involved.”

If only there had been a good person with a gun there to stop this guy...


Yet people with concealed-carry permits are more likely to commit mass shootings than to stop them, according to The Washington Post’s Christopher Ingraham. He found that concealed-carry permit-holders have committed at least 29 mass shootings since 2007, compared with roughly eight known cases of permit-holders using their weapons to stop such mass shootings

You're not really looking for any input except," guns are bad", are you?

I agree, except the way you put it, I'm glad I'm not an NRA "life" member like some people say they are. You know, the ones full of "buts".

Murder rates have been dropping for a LONG time now.
Long before the more recent concealed carry permit increase.
The two are not related.

Did somebody argue that concealed carry causes more crime than it creates?


Quite frankly, the actual argument poses something amusing.
Concealed carry requires a permit. Investigation.
So it shouldn't surprise anybody that the specific subcategory of concealed carry doesn't create more crime than it stops.

Actually, this helps demonstrate the potential impact of ensuring gun carriers are legit...


See the above.
Correlation does not equal causality...
