'Batman' Shooter

The Killer's Arsenal

7/20/2012 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

James Holmes used 3 different kinds of guns during his assault on a Colorado movie theater ... including a high power assault rifle.

The Aurora PD says Holmes was in possession of an AR-15, a Remington 870 shotgun and a 40 caliber glock handgun when he was arrested this morning.

Cops say they found another 40 caliber glock in the shooter's car, located right outside the movie theater.

An AR-15 is a semi-automatic weapon ... capable of firing off hundreds of rounds per minute.

Below is a video of someone demonstrating the firing power of the AR-15 -- a civilian version of the M-16 assault rifle.

Every law abiding person should want law abiding people to carry guns everywhere so when this crap breaks out the killers can be stopped on the spot.

Crimminals will NEVER turn in their guns, so all of you who say outlaw guns are naive and stupid.

When the s 88t hits the fan only bad guys and the government will have guns...are you really that foolish to not want to be armed.

americans who agree all should right this vey minute go the NRA website and become a card carrying member even if you don't plan on owning a gun.

You should support the right to own oone and carry one , even in public spaces especially.

The overwheming majority of gun owners would never commit crimes.

They would however shoot to kill a shooter on a a rampage and i bet most of the victims families would want to have a do-over in this theater with gun wearing people in the audience.

Only a few people would have got shot if any.

Wake up all you naive anti-gun people.

If crazy people or un-lawful people thought they had a very good chance of being taken out by any one of 300 movie goers...they would think twice before they plan to shoot up a theater or any public place.

its kinda scary that people aren't safe no more at a movie theater and that you can get shot and killed and if i owned one i would have security in each room

Must have been TSA agents at the ticket booth. God forbid you try to enter a theater with your own snacks and drinks, meanwhile this punk got in to the theater with three guns and body armor.

People are trippin now about gun rights. However, if you think outlawing guns works, just ask our friends in Mexico how that law is working out for them. More people would have been saved if one law abiding citizen was armed and acted.

It's like a Call Of Duty Modern Warfare arsenal. Americans wonder why kids shoot up their schools so often. Why lunatics are able to go on mass shooting rampages. Look no further than this picture. Do you think that the average Joe Blow in Britain could just walk into a gun store and start purchasing automatic machine guns and shotguns you only see in video games? NO CHANCE!! Why??? Because the gun laws over there are a million times stricter. When will America learn?
