    Gun being held as evidence after boys find it in movie theater

    Please, please - explain again why some of you think every American should be able to carry a firearm at all times

    Gun being held as evidence after boys find it in movie theater

    TILLAMOOK, OR (KPTV) -

    A group of seventh-grade students on a field trip to see The Hobbit found a loaded gun in a movie theater Wednesday morning. Tillamook school Superintendent Randy Schild said 125 students went on the field trip to Tillamook Coliseum Theatre as a reward for good grades.

    As the first group of children entered the theater to sit down, two boys found the gun on the ground in the theater aisle.

    "(I thought) was it real? Is it loaded?" said Kolton McKinney, about the discovery.

    The boy next to Kolton, Levi Crabtree, immediately told a school staff worker, who in turn called police.

    "I'm a boy scout and Kolton and me took a hunter safety class," said Levi, about his decision not to touch the gun. "One of the rules is that you treat all guns as if they're loaded."
    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.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    Presumably the ****wit who lost it and didn't think he had to report it missing was legally entitled to carry it. Isn't it lucky it was registered to him, and he didn't buy it at a gun show?

    maybe he did buy it at a gun show, as it would still have to be registered....Oh, and complete fail in your attempt to make all CCW holders to be this dumb.

    Re: Gun being held as evidence after boys find it in movie theater

    As for the OP, the kid who alerted the teacher did exactly what a responsible person familiar with firearms should have done. If he were not familiar with firearms, maybe he would have tried to play with it too. Perhaps it was firearms training and/or experience that saved the day as we have no idea from the article whose gun it was to begin with. While one might argue about the irresponsibility of the person who lost it; one can likewise argue that kids should be taught firearm safety in school. Two sides to every coin and all that......

    You mean someone found a gun and nobody died?

    Interesting.

    Oh boy. Are we gonna have an article every time someone sees a gun now?

    What exactly am I supposed to be outraged about here?
