In the first couple of days after shooting, we all read media reports about how heavily armored he was, and gun control advocates are using this to claim that a CCW holder would not have made a difference. This is baloney.
Holmes was not wearing a ballistic vest. He was wearing a tactical vest (of course, the media doesn't know the difference).
Here's the shooter's order at TacticalGear.com.
Here's the store's page for the vest: Blackhawk Urban Assault Vest
I'm still waiting for a gun control advocate to volunteer to demonstrate how bulletproof this vest is. And to make things easier for him/her, I am only going to use .22lr.
Bottom line is a CCW holder, if they had a shot at him, could have stopped this massacre with center mass hits. No need for a more difficult headshot.
So the next time you hear or read someone spread this "heavy armor" garbage, set them straight.
