From Fox News:
The suspect in a shooting spree at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater was packing as many as 6,000 rounds with the ability to shoot up to 50 a minute, the police chief said Friday evening.
I blinked several time to make sure I was reading right. 6,000 rounds? I pulled a round of .223 out of my ammo box (sign of a true gun nut? Has ammo for guns he does not own) and weighed it: 11.55 grams. That times 6,000 is 69,300 grams or 69.3 kilos which gives us 152.4 Lbs or the weight of a medium built 5’7″ male.
I am guessing the police chief misspoke or this Shooting Idiot is stronger than he appears. I will give him that he has not had the chance to rest one bit since this whole unfortunate event started.
PS: I was raised in the Metric System so I default to it when calculations are needed. My measuring tapes are in both systems! Therefore no complaining.
