The girls in this incident are the daughters of one of my co-workers. They sat down in their seats, one of them had a aisle seat, looked down on the floor and saw the pistol, questioned among themselves what to do and the oldest (12 years old) decide to notify an employee who secured the firearm without disrupting the other theater goers. The police were called, they ran the serial number, paged the gentleman who was still in the theater and he responded to the page.

Grandpa probably had no idea he dropped the pistol. Between taking the grandkids to the bathroom, getting snacks and moving seats at least three times, his head was probably spinning. Yet, he was arrested and charged with Reckless Endangerment (a person is guilty of Reckless Endangerment when that person recklessly engages in conduct which creates a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person). Thank God the 12 year old was wise beyond her years. But Reckless Endangerment? Hope Grandpa gets a good lawyer.

Expect 'No Firearms' signs at many local businesses. The one thing we in New York rarely see posted like other states.

Where was the adult with the kids? did they safeguard the gun as the kids went to fetch the manager? There is some missing info in this story but that's expected from Snoozday. I take it that a DL photo and not a mug shot.

The kids were at the theater by themselves with the parents permission. The oldest daughter (who I have met) is a very mature girl who did the right thing, left the firearm where it was and contacted and adult.

And this does actually validate the fact that SOME of us are irresponsible. But in every other walk of life the irresponsible actions of a few do not result in harsh punitive measure being taken on the rest of us. The moron that lost his gun could have just as easily been an LEO or retired LEO, and the entire process would have been manipulated for numerous reasons. Remember not too long ago when the retired LEO showed his doctor his concealed gun and caused an AD? That was a far worse blunder, but it didn't get very much traction, and I doubt the guy had charges bought against him.

The civilian arrested was not active MOS or Retired LE. He was carrying out of class. It happens, people who have a valid pistol license do get caught carrying out of restrictions all the time in New York. It is an administrative action only.

Duwayne Gregory says "immediately" in his new Safe Storage bill. As I said earlier, the guy was still in the theater, so how timely is timely?

Kudos to the girls
