The GOP has sold what little soul they had left to people such as this. They are neck deep and sinking, the only question being how long the corpse will curse us all. If you call yourself a conservative or a Republican I can only imagine you cry yourself to sleep at night. They have gone away as far as one can go without leaving the planet. Sick is to kind a word.

Geez. Not just no but hell no.

Gun Owners of America exists to make the NRA look sane and responsible.

Holmes was highly intelligent, took months to plan his rampage and could very easily have done everything entirely on his own with no help except for stuff he found on Teh Interwebz.

They found his Match.com profile, what other blogs and websites did he frequent?

Sheesh! The creep in the picture is a fake or a liar. An AR-15 is easy to shoot. Even a novice shooter could mow down dozens of people if he had Holmes' weapons and the victims were packed together a few feet away. As for the bombs, again, any fool willing to take the risk can rig these from simple descriptions on the net. All you have to do get access to his $20,000 arsenal is have $20,000. None of his guns were illegal or hard to get.

Yes, it was! James Holmes is a covert NRA operative looking to boost gun sales throughout the country and makes a commission every time the sheeple buy more guns and ammunition!!!1eleventy

The only real question I have is how did he get out of the apartment after he rigged it? Out the window three stories up without being seen? They were reporting that the trip wire was across the front door, but maybe he made room enough to shimmy out. I'm not sure that even points to another person, but I'm curious about it.

$20,000 arsenal? Not hardly, in fact no where near that number, but it makes a good lying sound bite/conspiracy point of faith, doesn't it?

I can buy an M&P 15 rifle (only $499.00 brand new btw) two fourty caliber semi-automatic handguns, and a pump action shotgun for less than $1800.00. Shit, even if I went out and bought a pair of premium grade imported semi-automatic handguns and an eight round "tactical" pump shotgun I could still buy it all for less than $4000.00!

So where does does this $20,000 arsenal number even come from? Out of some conspiracy theorists fever dreams, thats where.

It is extremely easy to set up a something like that if you are not worried about being able to reset/disarm it, he set his trap and left, never intending to come back. It isn't like he was setting it and then disarming it every time he came and went, this was a "one time only" thing.

The same way the cops got in to defuse (NOT DIFFUSE kthx) the booby traps -- through the window.

I saw a 'looks like a government job' comment on a FB friend's thread earlier.

You can't get a M&P 15 like the lunatic's for $499.00 unless it's from a crackhead who stole it. The M&P 15 .22LR is priced at about that level but his gun was a 5.56 and about twice as much. The figure of $20,000 is the conspiraloon's, apparently derived by adding the usual loony 1/3 exaggeration to the $15,000 figure being throw around in the media. Quoting and repeating that figure is not an endorsement, it would just have been mighty damn confusing if I had substituted my own educated guess of less than $7,000 for everything. The latter includes his body armor, ammo, etc. with a generous allowance for explosives. Even 15K seems like quite a stretch.


4499.00

I'm aware of that.

They were saying that the tripwire was pulled tight across the door, unless it was not pulled tight across the door. Then I can understand how he got out. If the wire was pulled tight, then he could not have left through the front door. The door opened inward.

Out the window... maybe. The cops got in with a cherry-picker. He certainly didn't have that. He would have had to use a ladder of some sort and then taken a huge risk of being seen crawling out a window so high up, but maybe he took that risk.

That is the only part of the story where it might make sense that he had an accomplice. Gathering all the gear, bombs and guns he could have done on his own.
