Question: How does an unemployed medical student afford $20,000 in weapons gear? If you start to look at the really big picture here, the obvious question arises: How does an unemployed medical student afford all the complex weapons gear, bomb-making gear, "flammable" booby trap devices, ammunition, multiple magazines, bullet-proof vest, groin protection, ballistic helmet, SWAT uniform and all the rest of it? Added July 22nd: "Police said Holmes spent months amassing explosives, weapons and ammunition." A decent AR-15 rifle costs $1,000 or more all by itself. The shotgun and handgun might run another $800 total. Spare mags, sights, slings, and so on will run you at least another $1,000 across three firearms. The bullet-proof vest is easily another $800, and the cost of the bomb-making gear is anybody's guess. With all the specialty body gear, ammunition, booby-trap devices and more, I'm guessing this is at least $20,000 in weapons and tactical gear, much of which is very difficult for civilians to get in ...

Aurora police chief Dan Oates was once a high ranking officer with the NYPD.
Once again, the liberal media, and the idiotic police chief of Aurora, Colorado, is attempting to make firearms (an inanimate object) the main culprit of the theatre shooting, instead of just blaming the human psycho (since we all know humans can't be evil in today's age; they just have medical problems that are not their fault). The AP reports "Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates has said a 100-round drum magazine was recovered at the scene of the shooting in suburban Denver. Oates said such a weapon was capable of firing 50 to 60 rounds a minute." Has it ever occurred to anyone that the only reason the rifle has that rate of fire is because THE SHOOTER can pull the trigger that fast? How fast can you twitch your finger? Once again, the rifle is the bad guy and the deranged shooter is just a victim. Dan Oates, you make me sick and you are a disgrace to the service of The People. To all the staff of the Associated Press: you already know you are partly responsible for the downfall of our great country, so I'm n ...

Gunman turns 'Batman' screening into real-life 'horror film' The suspect in the mass shooting at an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater screening of the new Batman film early Friday had colored his hair red and told police he was "the Joker," according to a federal law enforcement source with detailed knowledge of the investigation. At least 12 people were killed in the rampage and 58 were injured, one fewer than earlier reported. Of those injured "nearly everyone was shot," Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said Friday night, adding that a handful of people were hurt in the resulting chaos. Ten of the victims were killed inside the theater while two others died at hospitals. As of Friday evening, the 10 bodies had been removed from the complex and authorities were preparing to begin "the agonizing process" of notifying families, Oates said. A mug shot of suspect James E. Holmes has not been released. Witnesses to the shooting described him as wearing a gas mask that concealed much of his face and head. But the f ...
