Man who shot woman during Benghazi movie was armed because he feared mass shootings

This Thursday, a man accidentally shot a woman during a screening of 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi in Renton, Washington. The shooter, 29-year-old Dane Gallion, brought his concealed handgun because he was “concerned about recent mass shootings in public places.”

Last week, a man accidentally shot a woman during a screening of 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi in Renton, Washington. The shooter, 29-year-old Dane Gallion, brought his concealed handgun because he was “concerned about recent mass shootings in public places.”

Gallion, who has his conceal cary permit, admitted to taking an anti-anxiety medication and drinking a 22-ounce beer before the film. Eyewitnesses reported seeing an intoxicated man “fumbling” with a handgun in the theater.

Michelle Millari, who was sitting in front of Gallion, was shot in the shoulder. Millari was released from the hospital on Sunday. Police are still investigating to determine how exactly Millari was shot.

After Millari was shot, Gallion fled the scene but later spoke to his father, who ultimately called 9-1-1, prompting his son later turned himself in.

Police heard several different versions of events. According to his father’s 911 call, Gallion dropped the gun and it went off. However, he later told police that someone reached toward his crotch, and Millari was accidentally shot when he was reaching for his gun.

Police have released very little new information about the case, but confirmed on Saturday that someone had disturbed Gallion during the film. He has been released on $25,000 bail.

    This is exactly why I worry about folks arming themselves. Armed and unstable people are far more dangerous than ISIS.

    I think for someone to feel that strong a need to be armed in public screams ‘instability’. We tried that once. Then about he turn of the 20th century came the realization that maybe it wasn’t as good an idea as we thought.

    When will America wake up to the fact that the more people have guns, the more people will be shot? Apart from anything else the rampant anxiety, nay paranoia, that grips American citizens is proof that having guns all over the place is NOT a reassurance, it is the cause of their fear.

    Exactly the paranoid personality disorder that needs to be screened out during background checks

    And when will proper and universal background checks be established, and adhered to?

    Why is it that having a “carry permit” some how makes it ok ? I own guns and have had hand guns in the past.They never left the house except for hunting and target shooting. As a gun owner I have to say . I’m sorry but if you are that afraid of the public you should not own any gun. I live in a down town area in a village that is ranked as a high crime area in the state. I go out walking at all hours of the day or night and do not worry about anything happening.

    These half-wits are panicky. they are so wound up, talking with each other, inventing ever more frightening stories about this could happen or that could happen, blowing off wishful self praise about how THEY’D know what to do and how to do it. Oh sure, THEY’D shoot the ‘bad’ guy and be in the papers and on the news, humbly explaining how they have extraordinary skills, even though they were never in the military, or trained, but they played a lot of HALO and some Zombie games. Then they shoot themselves or somebody else and run off like a sniveling fool. Thanks NRA!! Thanks GOP!! You’ve developed a culture of armed idiots living in fantasy land.

    Oh yes, good excuse too. Someone reached for his crotch. At the Benghazi movie. Must have been turned on by Jim from The Office and wanted to get them some.

    Aaron, the evidence is right here – in this story – your background checks are NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Clear?
