I am so very shocked.

So if every six days I buy 999 rounds, I'd be good right? I mean that's lame because buying 10k and just being done with it for a while is much easier.

Then you'll all learn what it's like to live in Alaska where ammo can't be shipped. Hahahaha!!! (evil laugh).

I wonder if having a C&R FFL counts as being "licensed"?

Have any reports revealed how many rounds he fired, or how much ammo he had on his person? It would make an interesting counterpoint in this discussion.
I fail to see how having extra ammo at home affects, in any way, the outcome or planning of any sort of active shooter event.
The timeline on these events is based on the amount of time it takes for the shooter to be incapacitated or surrender, not on how long it takes him to run out of ammo.

They have obviously never been duck hunting with me.
I usually stay out of political discussions, but then I read an article about Kim Rhode and how much ammo she shot in practice to hit 99 out of 100 birds at the highest level of competition and felt motivated to post this on Facebook.
"Kim Rhode became the first athlete to medal in 5 consecutive Olympics by hitting 99 out of 100 clay targets shooting Skeet. For this feat she did America proud and brought home a Gold medal. She was able to perform at such a high level by shooting at least 500 rounds and as much as 1000 rounds per day. At a low end thatís 130,000 rounds per year if she only shoots 500 rounds 5 days per week and takes weekends off. I mention this because much has been made of the 6,000 rounds purchased by the perpetrator of the atrocity in Aurora CO & how can he need sooooo much ammunition, "it isn't necessary". If you look at this rationally that is not that much ammunition. I have friends that I compete with/against who regularly shoot 20,000 rounds plus of ammo annually in practice and competition. A good portion of which is the same as what was used in CO. When put in perspective 6,000 rounds is a drop in that hat to what serious law abiding citizens shoot pursuing legal enjoyable past times.
It is time to stop taking the easy way out by regulating the law abiding and start addressing the socio economic reasons that cause these kinds of atrocities. Why does Sweden which has a military grade fully automatic rifle with ammo & a pistol as well in every household have a lower rate of violent crime than us? Itís not the guns or ammo folks; itís the Evil People who will find ways to perpetrate evil."
I just may have to forward this to my representatives.
