Would someone please start talking about the logistics of this nightmare!
Either he wasn't the only one or he didn't do it. What i want to know is how someone that never used a gas mask was able.. to use a damn gas mask and
be super efficient at the same time. This is the polish you put into tactical combat squads not an amateur that plans it out in advance, i don't care
how gifted. Experience is the best teacher and what he did requires some some serious skill. Let's break it down.
60-90 seconds of shooting? Even if he switched guns when they got empty that's still not enough bullets to account for the body count im pretty sure
he missed. What do we have, a total of 71 folks that got it including the recently passed. Your handgun has probably 13-15 bullets, your shottie has
5 founds and that AR-15 has (i'm even going to start how a person with no job was able to purchase [he was on unemployment] an AR-15 and 6,000 rounds
of ammo) 30 round mag total (the pic of the gun had a normal 30 rd mag, but he could have reloaded while he was doing it, more people would have
Witnesses told the police that Mr. Holmes said something to the effect of “I am the Joker,” according to a federal law enforcement official, and
that his hair had been dyed or he was wearing a wig. Then, as people began to rise from their seats in confusion or anxiety, he began to shoot. The
gunman paused at least once, several witnesses said, perhaps to reload, and continued firing.

Uh.. after the first shot people would have started bugging out and start running for their lives. Your looking at about.. 50-55 shots max. The
shotgun being reloaded is not an option (you loose the advantage).. that leaves
you with the handgun and the semi automatic rifle. He had to reload. More than once. Marksman like efficiency, reloading the firearms, the limited
field of vision due to the gas mask.. your doing THIS IN THE DARK, eyes off the targets as you reload (you can't see), you look back up in the smoke
filled room. You trail your targets as they run, (shouldn't people be like, running their asses off during this? A stampede maybe?). That semi jammed
on him. This dude was unfamiliar with firearms that the AR-15 jams? While he was still able to maintain marksmanship on par with professional
shooters while on the clock, the guys that go to timed and scored shooting events? Not to mention he was shooting blindly. If he didn't reload then
(which he couldn't, then he looses the advantage) this man is one of the best shots in history. While wearing a gas mas in a dark theater.
Soon as that tear gas let loose people would have been pouring out of there. Or whatever he was used. And still saw no evidence about the presence of
smoke. No pictures of people being tread for irritation to tear gas or any other irritant. So what happened? When he started shooting did people
immediately start fleeing or did everyone dive for cover even when their eyes, nose, and throat was getting that burning sensation from the tear gas.
This dude catches 12 bodies with 58 injured in a smoke filled dark movie theater. And this man devoted his life to scientific pursuits... then stops
and does this? He's had no kind of training on a AR15 (You NEED it!) or with the shoottie and he manages a feat equal to the professional shooters?
Like i said, the logistics don't add up.
Here is the offical interview
VIDEO: Aurora Police Chief update on Aurora Theater Shooting
Many many rounds where spent, lots. enough for them not to be able to count even at the time of the press release. 60-90 of unleashed hell from
someone that has their gun jam on them. In a dark smoke filled room.. while wearing a gas mask. Not to mention that he had to have spent a damn
considerable amount of money on this arsenal. What was he doing? Funny how no one mentions his occupation. That AR15 is the biggest clue.
It would be entirely different if he had used an SKS, those things are around $300 tops! Nah, he went with an AR-15 (that's bread folks) so he spent
good money on a firearm he specifically wanted. And he didn't know about the jamming? Your looking at around least $5000 to just f'in snap or plan
this out. What was he doing? No one is talking.. not the school he went to, no reaction from relatives, not anyone from his hood.. nothing. And he
himself has clammed up.
