[Accused Aurora shooter] Holmes also bought an urban assault vest, two magazine holders and a knife for just over $300 on July 2 from an online supplier of tactical gear for police and military personnel, according to the company.
Chad Weinman, CEO of TacticalGear.com, said his company processes thousands of orders each day, and there was nothing unusual in the one that Holmes placed.
No, indeed. So what is it exactly that makes Holmes different from The President as First Person Shooter?
Imagination? Planning? Casualty count? Better toys? Doing the killing legally? (Please. It only hurts when I laugh.)
I mean, surely Obama's supporters aren't saying it's doubleplusgood to blow teenagers away in Yemen with a drone strike, and doubleplusungood to blow away teenagers in Colorado with a gun. Right? Especially when the victims in both killings are US citizens?
If there's no rule of law, then Obama and Holmes are exactly the same, except for one tiny difference: Obama is powerful, and Holmes is not.
NOTE To be fair, Obama didn't use pre-massacre smoke bombs. That we know of. So there's that.
