    this is just awful. people just wanting to go out for a few hours of innocent fun are mowed down by some crazy jackass. I wish people would stop killing each other. it is just so damned pointless.

    Possible but yes, also sounds like a guess. I would "guess" a high capacity 9mm for the handgun and something like an AR15 or AK-47.

    Whatever he was using must have had some power to it. One witness was in the next theater over and said bullets came through the walls. Theater walls are very thick, heavily insulated, and steel reinforced.

    6:52 a.m.: ABC News has contacted a woman in San Diego who identified herself as the mother of James Holmes. She says she was unaware of the shooting, but Y"ou have the right person. I need to call the police... I need to fly out to Colorado."

    Unfortunately, now taxpayers will spend millions of dollars on this guy who will consume national news for days.

    In extreme instances like this I'd prefer he was shot in the head by the arriving police and then his body thrown off some ship out to sea. Instead, there will be the totally predictable gratuitous lamenting by talking heads and politicians, another gun control debate, and people watching this incident for hours and hours in a world of 6,000,000,000 with 10,000,000 crazy murderous people among them.


    (At least then we'd know who really had been killed and that there was not fraud or coverup.)

    Metal jacketed, but could be anything from AK-47 to .223 to .308. If not concrete walls, even a high capacity 9mm with metal jacketed rounds such as a Uzi-style rifle, though unlikely. A .223 would be the easiest for the max number of rounds, but the one witness said he guessed 20 rounds, which then means it could be anything.

    FORTUNATELY none of these nutcases has used a 150 round twin canister .223 they converted to full auto. Not much larger than a large handgun and, fortunately, he didn't use explosives.

    There is no preventing things such as this from happening, though talking heads on TV will claim there is ad nausea.

    The Police stated that they found bombs in his aparment because he told him there were. None were armed.

    They've also reported that he had both a rifle and a shotgun.

    I very much agree. You can find a cheap .22 for $50 probably and a case of 20 or so rounds for even less. Sigh........sometimes having a justice system that is far better than a third world sucks.

    While part of me agrees with you on the rough justice end for scum like this we must remember that perhaps we can learn something about people like this which may help us down the road.

    I wonder if the guy planned on killing himself, like most do in these type of mass-murder plans?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
