I have been reading these threads for a while and these issues keep popping up.
Claim that the weight of the weapons and ammo would be too great for one person of his stature.
As a former soldier we would carry approx. 250 rounds each as a light load accompanied by our body armor, Kevlar, ruck sack, water supply, and weapon
as a minimum and many of us carried additional ammo and supplies well over 100 pounds throughout the day. IMO that theory is completely false he only
walked into a building he was not doing extensive maneuvers.
Like I said our basic load in the military was well over 100 pounds and the idea that 110 pound male couldn’t carry it inside a school is ridicules
to me. My ex-wife who I met in the Army carried that much and she was 106 pounds max at the time. He wasn’t doing aerobics, runs, or traversing
mountain terrain he went from the car parking lot to inside the school. 240 rounds is 8 30 round magazines that is what a basic LBE or tactical vest
He had a AR-15 that is a light package to carry. A small backpack could hold 3 to 4 times as much ammo. This is just the facts of how much weight he
was carrying you wouldn’t even need to be in shape at all to carry that much for such a short distance. The weight issue is really a non-issue IMHO.
If my cute little ex-wife could carry twice that then he wouldn’t have a problem with that small amount.
My understanding is he wore a tactical vest some can carry 15 30 round magazines. He could have had 1 150 round drum magazine already loaded. AR-15
rounds are extremely light that is one of the reasons the military chose them as the main combat round. You can carry a large amount with you on any
The idea that he moved like a well-trained swat member is pure unfounded conjecture but I am sure someone will say it again anyway.
The shotgun isn’t registered.
It is my understanding that shotguns rifles of that make are only registered when purchased from a dealer. A private sale from person to person is
rarely recorded. My entire collection of rifles and pistols are completely off the books because I bought from private citizens.
He would not bring additional weapons.
I do not see why he wouldn’t who knows what was going through his head. Leaving the two other weapons in the trunk either tells me he made a
decision to carry more ammo or he planned to escape later possibly utilizing the shotgun somewhere else. He could just have just been crazy which is
I am in no way saying that there isn’t more to this story just that these issues that keep coming up can have very reasonable and logical answers
which in my opinion should not be considered as evidence towards a conspiracy. There may be evidence that does I just do not consider these issues I
just went over as reasonable evidence to that effect.
The biggest questions I have is what is on those hard drives and was he taking or had he just stopped taking any medications. As far as there being
different vehicles or not it seems that no one has given a definitive answer but we know he left two weapons in one.
