Those uneducated on firearms never cease to amaze me. They believe everything the main stream media spoon feeds them and also make assumptions that we know are inaccurate.
An example on one of these treads, it may have even been this one, a poster stated that this guy carried thousands of rounds of ammo with him into the theater.
I don't know what system this guy had for carrying a shotgun, an AR with bulky 100round drum, a pistol, and thousands of rounds of ammo, but I bet swat teams all across the country want one. Personally, that would be a bit too heavy for me to carry.
Shotgun ammo: 11 rounds/lb
AR ammo: 28 rounds/lb
Pistol (9mm): 38 rounds/lb

Not on this planet is it remotely possible for an average sized man to carry all that, shoot accurately, and reload. Not physically possible. Even Ahnold couldn't pull it off, in his best of physical days. It is not just the weight, but the bulk and size of it all.

You are so right tho. The media will feed all sorts of exaggerations and bullsh1t to these sheep, and they eat it up as tho it were the Gospel Truth.

He must have entered the theater with a pallet jack.

Explain to me piece of merde, why are your guns being used for purposes other than self defense and why your 4th ammendment can be voided for some individuals? Stupid hole! Hypocrisis, inconsitencies, and incoherent burger, corn fed as*holes!
maybe if you had facts we could discuss your ill fitted opinions.

We let angry liberal morons like you post no matter how many times you change your name!

Give it up, loser. Move to your gun-less, right-less rainbow and unicorn socialist utopia of Greece or Spain.

Most Americans given a choice, actually, would ban it.

We will see if the NRA can sweep it under the rug.

The NRA gets full credit of the availability of the 100 round magazine.

People with intelligence understand that someone entering a theater armed with malice in his heart and an assault rifle and a dozen 100 round magazines is more dangerous that someone armed with a 2 shot derringer and say 1200 rounds.

The 100 round magazine is a gift from the NRA that will keep on giving.

Where I come from, 100 round magazines can hold one hundred rounds and weighs around three pounds.

Can you carry 100 pounds?

Again, provide proof of what you state. You state your OPINIONS as fact, then disappear long enough for the posts calling you out to fade back into the thread. Then you pop up again stating more misinformation.
Back up your statements, we are patiently waiting.

Will you take a video of you carrying a shotgun, an AR-15, a handgun, and a dozen 100 round AR-15 drum magazines and post it so we can all see how that is done?

You post opinions, darling.

It's my opinion that someone standing on a stage in front of a movie audience with a AR-15 that is equipped with a 100 round magazine is going to be able to kill more people than if he had a two shot derringer.

And you opinion is he is no more threat with a assault rifle than he is with a two shot derringer.

I 'll stand behind my opinion.

Tell me: how is it that 100 round magazines are now legal when they were not legal ten years ago.

Show us all that I am "misinformed".

Tell me: how much does a loaded 100 round magazine weigh?

Show us all that I am "misinformed".

If a derringer is as deadly as an assault rifle, my dear: why is it our soldiers aren't equipped with two shot derringers?

That is not my opinion. You stick to explaining your opinion, I'll tell everyone what mine is.
My opinion is that by banning AR-15s with any size magazine you want, the security provided by the second amendment is compromised and diminished.
My opinion is that if AR-15s and 100 round magazines were banned, this guy and other criminals can still obtain them as demonstrated in this case by the possession of the banned/illegal gas canisters.
My opinion is that you are delusional to think that adding 5 to 10 years onto a death penalty case would have changed this guy's mind about proceeding with his plan.

I look at banning the clips and guns like the libs rant about drugs, they say that banning or making them illegal just creates a dangerous black market.

First you are an off the wall character who has zero knowledge of guns.

I don't want to write a text book on how to kill multiple people and that is what you are asking for.

If I told you of all the stupid things he did if he wanted maximum carnage would that not be morbid and dangerous that someone reading it may employ those ideas and I would have to live with that.
