Fox News Confirms Colorado Shooter’s Guns Purchased Legally

Fox News has confirmed that the weapons used by the Colorado shooter in an early Friday morning massacre by James Holmes, were purchased legally.

“We heard from the police chief in New York City earlier – police superintendent – and he had spoken with the folks in Colorado and gave us a rundown of all the weapons this guy had,” said Shepard Smith.

He went on to say that Fox News was able to confirm an ABC News report that the guns used in the Colorado shooting were purchased legally at two Gander Mountain gun shops in two separate towns.

“The other guns were purchased at two Bass Pro shops – both in Denver,” said Smith. “And what’s described by the law enforcement source as a ‘significant amount of ammo.’”
