USA should have a system of raising a red flag when someone buys so much ammo through the internet.
Gun ownership for self defence does not require so many live rounds.

12 killed by psycho in Colorado. USA freaks out with total media coverage and President's attention. 18,000 killed and countless wounded in Syria and they just talk endlessly about Kofi Annan's useless "peace plan" while more continue to be killed.

no nation will want to pump money into this war, especially with the recession coming.

He did it to get ATTENTION.
He did it for fame.
Academically, he was like our President Scholar material.

If he was so desperate for attention and fame.
He should have got into the media industry, then he would have flourished, been happy with all the media attention and maybe host a TV talk show.

Locally, in Singapore they don't shoot people in cinemas; they just bash up a taxi to get into the news again. Anything for publicity.
Some HK person pretends to forget he has sex videos with HK actresses in the notebook sent for "repair" - for publicity to revive a dead acting career.
