    One thing I have learned in mi limited experience with gun purchase is that you don't buy a gun from a storefront dealer on a day when there are several gun shows going on in the state., The wait for an instant background check can be quite long. All firearms dealers at the shows have the same rules as if they were in a store. The single exception is a few private individuals who are selling their own private collections, and these tend to be collectors guns. Nor, for that matter, have I ever seen semis in the parking lot loading guns into trunks of cars for transport to NYC. The gun show loophole is mostly myth.

    If a person carrying legally misplaces his firearm and doesn't report it, he is indeed an idiot. He may have not been aware that it was missing, but he was still an idiot.

    As for the kids who found the weapon, their firearms training did them good. I had training in scouts. 90% safety, 10% use.

    I think we should have civilian Drill Instructors who find asswipes like this and crawl up their ass and tie their tonsils just like they would for a boot who mishandled his rifle.

    The point is that he didn't leave his cell phone , he left a loaded pistol in a facility often frequented by children. Where is R. Lee Ermey when you need him.

    Then we hear the squawking about how the gun haters are going to be storming the media. Forget the gun haters it is the moron gun owners doing the damage very well without any help. Good grief in roughly one week we have had a dad shoot and kill his 7 yr old son, another idiot showing how his safety work and shot himself in the face and now this taco. Yes, everybody should have a gun . Captial B Capital S.

    No , the moron gun owners are doing just fine by themselves so the gun haters can go sit this one out.

    I think the OP's point was that this guy was personally a douche bag and too scared to report that he lost his gun. Therefore I assume he probably wants to enact some form of taxation on the average gun owner to make guns harder to get. (be that paying for more expensive hoops to jump through or a literal tax) As if this will somehow magically cleanse the world of douchebags.

    The best part of the tale - the man who lost the piece didn't think he needed to report to the police that he had lost a loaded weapon.
    Could you post a link to the story?

    I would like to know if the gun owner was arrested and his house searched for guns.

    The man who brought the gun into the theater is the equivalent of a drunk driver, putting other people, children in this case, at risk.

    Second time I've failed to provide a link - shame on me

    Boys find gun in movie theater during 'Hobbit' field trip - KPTV - FOX 12

    UPDATE: Gary Quackenbush, 61, has been charged with recklessly endangering another person, a class A misdemeanor. Tillamook County District Attorney Bill Porter filed charges against Quackenbush December 18, after students found Quackenbush's loaded gun in the Coliseum Theater. From the complaint: "The said defendant, on or about December 19, 2012, in illamook County, State of Oregon, did unlawfully and recklessly create a substantial risk of serious injury to other persons, contrary to the statutes in such cases made and provided and against the peace and dignity of the State of Oregon."
