    republicans are trying to spread a lie that the colorado shooter used the money given to him by the government to go to school to pay for the 15k arsenal he had. this simply is not true for one reason. he actually went to school. According to the news he attended school up until April where he failed an oral examination despite being a rather good student. This means that he had to pay the money the government gave him to the school for the semesters he attended college. 26k is barely going to get you an associates at a community college. it certainly is not going to get you up to the advanced classes in neuroscience. 26k would not cover where he had already gotten in his college education, especially with him living in an off campus apartment.

    So no, he did not use our tax money to get guns. Our tax money was used to get him an education, which no one could have determined was going to go to waste because he shot up a movie theater. Where did he get the money? He probably had savings, got it from family and friends, or even has a large outstanding credit card bill. He couldn't have even withdrawn for a refund in April because it would have been too late for him to get a refund. So since he had a college education he certainly used the money the government gave him in the way it was intended. Since the background checks on him revealed no psychosis or felonies there was no way the college assistance programs would have known to give that money to a person who was a bit more stable so as not to waste it.

    So unless you have some proof he went to college for free allowing him to use the government assistance for gun purchases, the claim that he used government education money for guns and ammo is completely without base and goes further to become a bold faced lie meant to politicize this event.

    If you knew anything at all sweet heart, you would know some of the Assistance you get is cash, and can be used at your Discretion for living expenses.

    The Question is where did he get the money if he was a full time student other than the Grants he had?

    One, since he actually got the education he spent the money on education. Had he not gone to school your bullshit might have some truth to it, but he went to school.

    I would also like to point out he graduated and applied for government assistance for his education before obama was president in the Bush years. So if you are going to follow a completely incorrect load of crap bullshit you need to say that bush gave him the money for his arsenal. Of course, that would also be incorrect as he did not get the money from the government because he spent that money, even if it was cash, on attending school.

    Again, i told you to prove your point, and all you could do is say he got cash for something that probably ran him over 50k, and he got 26k for it. So unless he got the school to let him go for free so he could use that money elsewhere he used it on school.

    Either prove your point or keep being an ignorant twat, but don't expect me to think down at your level.

    Is this why you were so butt hurt in that thread I started?

    15,000.00 arsenal? Until the list of what he has is released you don't know how much was the cost.

    I didn't realize the anti gun people had an issue with this, I never realized it was an issue.

    He graduated in California, he was going to grad school but dropped out. Have you ever had student loans? they do give you money, so you can pay stuff, it's kinda like Aflac. My wife bought a laptop with the leftover money and it was good investment for her. I'v e seen you have coherent posts, so dont try and be a partisan.
    NOW I dont know how he got his money yet, but it COULD be from student loans. I like to wait for facts, so it might or might not be true

    As upset as i get with any blatantly false statement that relies on fear rather than educated thought. If it helps you got me about as annoyed as a person who does the jersey slide on the highway.

    Those are the estimates i heard on the news, though no one has actually come up with the exact amount he had spent. That seems to be based on common retail value, but he may have saved some money. I know from going to gun shows and shopping online you can often haggle down purchases, especially in large quantities online.

    It still doesn't mean he spent any money he was given for school on it. Especially considering he had been attending school for years, and would have needed to pay for his classes at the latest in january of this year, and authorities claim he did not start purchasing his arsenal until April.

    Obviously you have not listened to the point, which is that the claims he used US tax dollars given through educational assistance to purchase those weapons. If you are arguing some completely different point then that is a deflection from the point of the thread.

    Either you admit that I am right and the claims he used tax money to purchase the guns is incorrect, or you have some sort of evidence that he did not spend the money on the college education we know he had, or that he had used some other program from the government to purchase guns. Anything else is just you pissing in the wind.
