    Suspect Bought Large Stockpile of Rounds Online

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/23/us...otings.html?hp

    DENVER Unhindered by federal background checks or government oversight, the 24-year-old man accused of killing a dozen people inside a Colorado movie theater was able to build what the police called a 6,000-round arsenal legally and easily over the Internet, exploiting what critics call a virtual absence of any laws regulating ammunition sales.
    Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.

    Law-enforcement officials have refused to say whether Mr. Holmes bought the ammunition from multiple sources or spaced out the purchases over several weeks to avoid drawing attention.
    That's a lot of ammo for sure. But considering that he had all this planned out for awhile. It wouldn't surprise me if he spaced out the purchases. Hell he didn't need all that ammo to do this. He could have used 500 rounds and bought them all from different local shops.

    I can buy ammo buy the case right now in any standard issued US military caliber and some non issued calibers. But I find it much more practical to reload my own ammo. Much cheaper.

    As per the gun-control discussion, I don't want to take anyone's guns away, it is a 2nd amendment right, but I think a federal back-ground check and a 7 day waiting period should be standard for purchasing guns; I really don't think that's too unreasonable. Colorado currently doesn't have any waiting period for buying guns.

    They do have background checks though. Which should be enough IMO.

    I know here in Florida you have to wait at least 3 days or so until you get your gun. If you have a CWP you don't have to wait at all. IMO a background check should be sufficient enough. Even with a background check and waiting period wouldn't have prevented this.

    I NYS you have to file a separate form all together for pistol permits. You are then subjected to a bevy of background checks (including the FBI) local police interview and a few others, it does vary a little from county to county but mostly is the same.

    For a long gun (rifle, shotgun or other) you need to have a clean record and cannot be a convicted felon (I know some who have lost their pistol permit due to DWI convictions). The check consists of running of your drivers license or sheriff's ID with your social security number. This is a standard check used by local police offices across the nation so I am certain the fed is involved somehow.

    Bottom line is simple, no one will ever know if a person who has never committed a crime is going to fall of the deep end. Unless that person communicates their intent publicly and someone can be told there will never be a way to identify the person.
