I'm sure this has already been discussed ad nauseam but how did a college student without a job afford to buy all that crap at once...
AR, S&W = lets say conservatively $650
Glocks x2 = conservatively $900.00
Remington 870 = $300
Body armor - chest = $250
Body armor - neck = $100
Body armor - helmet = $150
Drum magazine = $120 + regular 30 round AR mags @ $15/mag
Glock mags = $20/mag
6000 rounds of ammo is insane...if it was all .223/5.56 (AR15) is would cost around $1600 for the cheapest crappiest steel ammo available
6000 rounds of Glock .40 cal would be a little less - somewhere around $1300.00
On top of that you got all the accesories and crap, gloves, pouches, vest, plates, tactical crap, which can add up very quickly
Sooo...basically we're talking about a jobless college student dropping somewhere in the neighborhood of $5000.00 in less than a couple months...
This is a very conservative estimate btw you can easily add at least $1000 if he wasn't concerned with bargain hunting (which I'm guessing was probably the case).
I'm not saying it's not possible in this world of credit cards & crap but damn...I didn't have those kind of limits when I was in college & especially not now with the banks being stingy on credit...
I would have thought that his card company would have slowed him down when they suddenly start seeing $1000+ purchases show up in a small window of time unless he had a history of large purchases which bears asking...where did his money come from then?
Just a thought...

I see it as a reason to make it easier for people to get a gun. Here is the way I see it. A bad person that wants to kill will always find a way to do it. No matter how well you control guns, if a bad guy wants one, they will get one. But, if someone else in the theater had a gun on them, they could have dropped the guy before he got off more than a couple of shots.
Except that if its easier for 'good guys' to own guns, it would also be easier for 'bad guys' to own guns. That would, inevitably, lead to a proportionate increase in the amount of tragedies.
Arapahoe County Coroner Michael Dobersen said in a statement "a total of 11 victims have been definitively identified ... One additional victim, had been presumptively identified." They are as follows:
Jessica N. Ghawi, 24
Veronica Moser-Sullivan, 6
John T. Larimer, 27
Alexander J. Boik, 18
Jesse E. Childress, 29
Jonathan T. Blunk, 26
Rebecca Ann Wingo, 32
Alex M. Sullivan, 27
Gordon W. Cowden, 51
Micayala C. Medek, 23
Alexander C. Teves, 24
Another victim, Matthew R. McQuinn, 27, has been presumptively identified, but is awaiting definitive identification, the coroner's office said. (Reporting by Stephanie Simon; Writing by Tim Gaynor; Editing by Peter Cooney and Stacey Joyce)

Another what? A person who doesn't see the cops/government as my savior for all situations? There are like 70 plus people in this latest attack that the cops did nothing for...
Truly think about "when seconds count, cops are minutes away"

Also this will undoubtably be used to install T.S.A gropers in movie theaters and probably shopping malls. Something big sis has wanted for a long time. Just to throw this out there, the acronym for “National Association of Theatre Owners” is.......N A T O.
