Aurora Police Chief may want to recheck his statement for math.

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.

  1. I`m 60 yr.s old but,put 600 rd.s of .223 in 20 30 rd. mags along with all the other misc. stuff he was carrying and it adds up. He may be young but that`s alota stuff to tote unless you train and train hard. NMHO 🙂

  2. Did they find any BUCKETS at the scene? One of the TV “reporters” said the shooter had buckets of ammo…
    I was hoping the son of a bitch shooter was at least a Muslim radical and not one of us !

  3. What they said (that makes sense) was that he had recently purchased 6000 rounds of ammo off the internet. Don’t know how much he was carrying.

  4. So basic question here…how does one manage to get into a crowded theater hoofing “buckets” containing up to 6000 rounds of ammo….AND NOBODY SAID A FLIPPIN THING ABOUT IT???? Ya gotta think, someone mustve noticed and wondered WTF he was up to?

  5. I also had to wonder 6,000 rounds??? He had a 100 drum mag. I suppose it would take a while to reload the drum mag. The chief also keeps calling the AR15 an assault rifle. He knows better than that. I live in Colorado about 30 miles from the Aurora mall where the theaters are located . There is a police sub-station in the mall that is within line of sight. It was a sad day here but the liberals where shouting about more gun control. Shame on them.

  6. What’s all the BS about how many rounds he was packing, or how much it weighs, or if he had a bucket of ammo. Who cares? Too many people lost their lives that day, and way too many had their lives changed forever. They should be the focus of this horrific tragedy, not how much freakin ammo the sick bastard had. 🙁
