DENVER: Unhindered by United States federal background checks or government oversight, the 24-year-old man accused of killing a dozen people inside a Colorado movie theatre was able to build what police called a 6000-round arsenal legally and easily over the internet, exploiting what critics call a virtual absence of any laws regulating ammunition sales.
With a few keystrokes, the suspect, James Eagan Holmes, ordered 3000 rounds of handgun ammunition, 3000 rounds for an assault rifle and 350 shells for a 12-gauge shotgun – an amount of firepower that costs roughly $US3000 at online sites – in the four months before the shooting, according to police. It was pretty much as easy as ordering a book from Amazon.
Yup, gun debate. I only post this because of the amount of bullshit I see about how his stupid hair is to blame, or how he is white, bullied, not an arab, black or it’s Obama’s fault blah blah blah. Seriously, the shit people are saying is fucking retarded. No one gives a toot about how easy it was for him to build up a fucking arsenal. I say, Americans you want the right to have easy guns. Then these are the consequences.
