Police: Texting argument in movie theater sparks fatal shooting - CNN.com
This is the other side of the coin. Some times having a "good guy" with a gun ends up being far more dangerous than what would probably have been a simple assault or verbal spat. If we had several times more people running around with firearms for "safety" I wonder how many incidents like this would increase. Humans can lose their temper and react irrationally in the moment. This reminds me of another story where a guy leaving his driveway in his truck was accosted by a door to door salesman and shot him point blank out of pure momentary rage.A retired police officer is accused of shooting a man dead during an argument over texting in a Florida movie theater Monday afternoon, police said. The victim's wife also was wounded when the shooter pulled a handgun and fired once before the afternoon showing of the war film "Lone Survivor" at the theater complex in Wesley Chapel, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said.
The suspect, Curtis Reeves, is a retired Tampa police officer and will be charged with second-degree homicide, Nocco said.
