"Man shoots talker at movies, police say

Man threw popcorn at son, then shot father after argument, Philadelphia police say

Victim was treated for gunshot wound to left arm, police say

James Joseph Cialella was carrying a .380-caliber handgun, police say

(CNN) -- A man angry that a family was talking during a movie threw popcorn at the son and then shot the father in the arm, according to police in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

James Joseph Cialella was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons charges.

James Joseph Cialella, 29, was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons violations, a police report said.

Cialella told the family sitting in front of him in the theater on Christmas Day to be quiet, police said.

An argument ensued while others at the Riverview Movie Theatre watched "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Cialella then approached the family from the left side of the aisle and shot the father, who was not identified, as he was standing between Cialella and his family, according to the police report.

The victim was taken to Jefferson Hospital with a gunshot wound to his left arm, police said.

Cialella was carrying a Kel-Tec .380-caliber handgun clipped inside his sweatpants, police said. He was arrested and taken into custody."

So since he was charged with a 'weapons violation' I assume that means he didn't have a CWP that was valid in PA???

Has anyone heard of something like this happening where the perp HAD a valid CWP?
It does happen, but the stats show that it is an extremely small percentage of CCW's that violate the law in anyway. In my opinion they tend to realize that the "right" to carry is a very fragile "right" that is easily lost for even the most minor offenses. In my case I even drive my car more cautiously since I got my permit... ;)
