    The law varies from state-to-state, and then even by county-to-county. In California, for example, automatic weapons are completely illegal. In Colorado, they can't have more than a 20-round magazine capacity.

    That said, buying automatic weapons in both Colorado and California is very easy to do without going through any legal channels (no waiting period either).

     yea but a hundred round drum mag should be illegal no matter what... military supply only type of business. there's nothing you can do with semi autos being converted to fully autos, thanks to desert militias.

    Sorry, I REALLY don't want to turn this into a gun control debate after only three posts.

    I've got a lot of friends that are seriously wrecked over this whole thing. It's emotionally exhausting.

    Instead of the standard ol' gun control debate that is hashed and re-hashed to nowhere (since opposite ends of the spectrum will never change their viewpoints) - and because of my personal issues I've had to deal with - I'm quite curious what role, if any, a mental disorder played in this tragedy?

    Just before disengaging with his University of Colorado - Denver's graduate program in neurosciences....and loading up on 6,000 rounds in the last couple of months....
    the University website listed one of his courses as the Biological Basis of Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders.

    Not to say that I know at all if this dude will be found to have some serious shit fucked up in his brain like the University of Texas shooter had in 1966 in his massacre, but one can speculate that it's like he learned something or came across something or had some type of seminal moment where he took a hard left turn mentally and snapped.

    Or maybe he was just evil???

    I've liked me my Morgan Freeman Through the Wormhole shows, and very coincidentally (and unfortunately) this episode on "Can We Eliminate Evil" came out just before the shooting.

    Just other thoughts among the obvious one of WTF!!?? when reflecting on this tragedy....

    I've thought about that a lot too, Chapman. Regardless the weapon choice (gun, knife, car bomb, airplane, etc...), there has to be some consideration of the sick bastard that decided to deliberately, mercilessly take innocent lives. The human mind, with all its mysteries, is more dangerous a weapon than anything tangible.

    That being said, I hope no authority finds him to be "psychologically unstable" or whatever bullshit can be pulled to lessen the severity of his sentence.

     pretty sure there has to be some mental illness there, but depending on the definition we're all mentally ill to some degree

    i get handguns, hell i want to own one. fun to shoot, personal protection all that and yeah you could take out some folks with it sure but its not a machine gun.

    long guns, shotguns, of course. go hunting have fun

    but fucking machine guns and all that other stupid shit? owning 6000 rounds of ammo? its fucking stupid and if a few gun fetishists rights have to be trampled on so that no one can get that shit without mega illegal connections/behavior so be it

    I heard something about how he left techno blasting in his booby-trapped apartment. He also left the front door open, basically inviting someone to come in and trigger one of his booby traps. His neighbor went by and checked on the loud music, but luckily for her, she didn't go in.

    Im saddened to say, but I'm sure there are people with loaded guns everywhere and we just don't know it. Where i work, i see people carrying every day, and i know for a fact the guns are mostly illegal. Police every day are seizing assault rifles from local gangs, its nuts. Assault rifles by definiting imply that their use is for assault against human targets. People do not need those. And for the nuts citing the second amendment, lets have a look.

    "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

    Well regulated is the first few words. The amendment implies that gun laws can be regulated, but arms must be accessible. Lets anaylze this. This amendment was written before machine guns, assault rifles, and weapons of the like. So personally, what I take from the second amendment, is that the government can impose regulations as long as there are some form of arms available to the public. Handguns and hunting rifles are all the public needs, and thats all they should get.

    Note: not fixing typos, I'm staring into the sun on my deck and my screen is hard enough to read.

     While I agree with alot of what you said, did you actually read that article?

    This dude said he brought a gun to the Batman showing, which he admitted to during a traffic stop where he was cited for doing 112 mph. During the stop they discovered assault rifles and newspaper clippings about the colorado shooting spree that had just taken place. He admitted to having been heading to the next state over to kill a former boss when he was pulled over. Also, when they searched his apartment, they found essentially the same arsenal that the colorado killer had.

     I read the article, my post was a poor attempt to spin off from that article and comment on the prevalence of weapons in general. There are many stories like that that i come across each year but they don't get much attention unless something happens, and it usually takes a major incident to bring it back to the public's eye for a brief period of time before it goes all away until next time.
