Man accidentally shoots himself in the ass at Bourne screening…

August 16th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Wow, someone took a gun to the cinema? After the tragic incident in Aurora? And something bad happened… what were the odds?

The Associated Press are reporting that a 56-year-old Nevada man was rushed to the hospital after his firearm accidentally discharged. Yes, he took a bullet in the backside! But thankfully it wasn’t life threatening and no-one else was hurt.  

However, even though the gun was properly licensed, the man was sent to a Sparks, NV city attorney who will investigate and potentially press charges and the man may have his concealed weapons license removed.

Now, while we can appreciate the funny in this story, surely this had the potential to be a much darker tale? What do you guys think? We want your thoughts and, failing that, bullet in the bum jokes.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
