Guess what? You helped to pay for the massacre!

The Batman movie shooter was receiving a $21,600 stipend in monthly installments of $2,166 from a National Institutes of Health neuroscience education grant for his enrollment in a neuroscience doctorate program  at the University of Colorado-Denver Anschutz Medial Campus.  Holmes also received a $5,000 stipend from Colorado University.

It has been estimated that Holmes spent $15,000 purchasing a Smith & Wesson M&P15, a Remington 870 shotgun, two .40 cal. Glock pistols, body armor and thousands of rounds of ammo.  Since Holmes had no other income, all American tax payers and additionally all Colorado taxpayers (the $5,000 stipend) helped pay for the Batman movie massacre.

    Why not buy guns and ammo with grant money? California Welfare recipients use their EBT cards to withdraw $$ for gambling at casinos, buying cigs and booze, and food for their friends (which they sell at a 50% mark off and pocket the cash). I don’t see what the problem is. Maybe he justified the purchases by stating it was equipment for “research”.
