Default Dark Knight Rises
Apparently he stormed in through one of the exit doors clad in a helmet and a bullet-proof vest, so it would appear that he wanted to survive the encounter. In that respect he sort of reminds me of Andre Breivick. I'm sure we'll get some sort of statement of his motives very soon.

So is it legal to own an "AK-like" assault rifle in Colorado?

Yeah, of course. It's just a semi-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine.

Those are legal in Canada, too, Asher.

In fact I'm pretty sure all of these guns are legal in Canada. Does Canada allow handguns?

Assault rifles are selective fire (semi or fully automatic), and are generally unavailable in the US. What this guy probably used was an assault style rifle, which looks similar on the outside, but only fires in semi-automatic. Since it fires in semi-automatic there are virtually no restrictions in most states. California, Illinois, and the north east are the only areas that would seriously restrict this type of gun.

I'm sure we could've stopped this if only we'd asked this guy whether anyone he'd had sex with would have an issue with him owning a gun.

You may joke, but this is probably more effective than you'd ever know.

Colo. shooting suspect's Calif. family cooperating


SAN DIEGO. (AP) -- The California family of the suspect in a mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater says their hearts go out to those involved.

Police in San Diego read a statement Friday morning from family members of 24-year-old James Holmes, who graduated from high school in the San Diego area.

The family asked the media to respect their privacy. They say they're cooperating with authorities in San Diego and Aurora, Colo., and are trying to process everything.

San Diego police spokeswoman Andra Brown says there's nothing to suggest the family had any involvement.

A spokeswoman for the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver says Holmes was a student there until last month but didn't know why he withdrew.

Oh, also, semi-automatic rifles are totally legal in Canada and lots of people do have those. You just can't have magazines with more than 5 rounds. Those are even more easily acquired and smuggled than guns, and you could even make it by hand yourself out of sheet metal and a legal magazine with little effort. To make it concealable, just add a folding stock and saw down the barrel.
Yes, because everyone is a gunsmith in Canada or has access to machine tools to do the job.

I miss those threads we used to have 10 years or so back where people would declare, in all seriousness, that the UK's ban on handguns caused homicide rates to rise.

They were fun. For me, anyway.

I like that attitude. "It might be tricky and take a long time, so let's not bother starting". Slacker culture FTW.

And there's not a lot of evidence that gun control even does any good
There's plenty. The problem is Americans choose not to believe it, instead throwing out rhetoric like "well, if you had as many darkies as we have, you'd have higher murder rates with guns too!"

Also, hasn't anyone here seen Red Dawn? Private guns are crucial to repelling communist invasions.
