TacticalGear.com filled an order received on July 2 from Holmes, who allegedly opened fire inside an Aurora, Colo., theater on Friday, killing 12 people. Holmes paid $306.79 for an urban assault vest, two magazine pouches and a tactical knife.
Chief Executive Officer Chad Weinman said despite its name, the urban assault vest is not bulletproof, but is simply a vest made for carrying accessories.It would still have been a hard shot to make in a dark and crowded theater. I mean, with all those people running around, someone might have gotten hurt!
UPDATE: From some of the comments, it is apparent that irony doesn't come across very well. I can't imagine any likely situation where an armed civilian returning fire would have made this situation worse. The odds are against success, but even causing the shooter to look for cover would have been an improvement.
