    Looks like one of every peppers gun

    How did the Colorado shooter afford all the stuff?
    Pulse 3 40 cal glocks
    One high end AK
    And 6000 rounds of ammo
    Let’s not forget body armor I cannot afford with a good full time job

    If you're stupid enough to perpetrate a massacre like that, you're stupid enough to use credit cards.

    He did not have body armor. He wore a tactical vest. No protection. Had an AR not an AK. And Im still curious about the reports from the witnesses about other gas being thrown in from the door when he was on theother side and the phone calls talking about multiple people. Also what about the reports about him having meetings the month before with people in suits at the Starbucks ect.

    The gunman, wearing what Aurora Police Department officials described as nearly head-to-toe “ballistic gear,” including a throat protector and leggings, plus a gas mask and a long black coat, came in through a parking lot exit door near the screen of Theater 9.
    this is from the new york time also the first police on sight.

    The "supposed body armor" showed on Piers Morgan seems to be over exaggerated. Was he really this suited up?

    @jjackffrost:
    The picture you have on the first post is from Neil Prescott, not James Holmes.

    That's a good picture, but it belongs to a copycat joker, Neil Prescott from DC. The nut made a bunch of threatening calls to his boss who he thought was about to fire him. Look what the cops found. "IDIOT"

    Exactly, this isn't Holmes' weaponry.

    Nothing like having the federal gov buy the very thing they want to ban. That is the current gov way. Just like we paid for FF guns

    Do you have better pics? Becasue it could be airsoft for all we know. Heck they reported that AR was an AK also. Still cant find out 3 or 4 guns I have heard it both ways so many times. Also they reprorted 2 people so what is right? That pic does not prove anything. You might be right but then again I have heard the news report so much BS cant trust them at all.

    Interesting link... There's a ballistic shield by the building, either left by the police (doubt it) or he was trying to use it, though with his hands full with firearms not sure how that would work. One of the items shown in the pictures does look like your typical ballistic vest, not sure about the helmet, could be an airsoft replica or it could be genuine. Creepily enough there looks like a trail of bloody footprints in the last picture.

    If that receipt is real, then it was a tac vest. not body armour.

    Yeah that's definitely a load bearing vest according to that picture. Doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't have a vest but that's an interesting note

    There are some other possibilities. The shooter might have been dumb and thought that vest had ballistic protection. Or he wore armor underneath the vest. Or he had no armor at all, besides the helmet :)

    He drove a Hyundai? That should've been enough to deny him a firearm.
