    That other range they are talking about is free and unsupervised.
    So he just never followed through with the first range. But I am not sure how that translates to banning him for being weird. After all that gun range owner left him three messages to which he simply didn't respond.

    That was the headline of various media reports, which are very often misleading, imo. However, Mr. Rotkovich never claimed or stated that he had rejected JH, or his application.

    IMO, it is good that the gun club owner was astute enough to pick up on whatever he must've considered a 'red flag'.

    As you said, JH very likely found another range at which to practice shooting.

    According to Lead Valley's website:

    The cost for membership to run this range is $150.00 a year with an initiation fee of $100.00 the first year.

    Mateus da Costa Meira ( Salvador , April 4 of 1975 ), better known as "The Shooter Cinema", or "Shooter Shopping", is a former university student in the field of medicine . The nickname comes from the fact that he fired a submachine gun from the audience of a movie theater in a shopping mall in the city of Sao Paulo .
    According to eyewitnesses the action on the night of November 3rd of 1999 , within the room of the five films of the Morumbi Shopping , area south of the city, Matthew would have risen from his seat, went to the bathroom - where he shot himself in the mirror his submachine Cobray M-11 - and then stayed in front of the audience, pulling back the gun and starting shooting. This tragedy resulted in three deaths, four people injured and 15 more in a panic. This tragedy Matthew earned the nickname that carries today. The film aired at the time of the shooting was Fight Club .
    Caught in the act, just sentenced to more than 120 years in prison in a closed regime. His lawyers argued that Matthew was semi-attributable, or had partial awareness of their actions. After several appeals court, Matthew was sentenced to 30 years formal limits provided by the Brazilian courts. Defense lawyers tried in vain to plead insanity for his client and to argue that Matthew had been influenced by the game Duke Nukem 3D, in which there is a scene in a film shooting. [1]
    On May 8th of 2009 , Matthew tried to kill his cellmate in the Lemos Brito Penitentiary in the city of Salvador , and was booked for attempted murder . [2]

    Holmes bought one of the four guns — the first of two Glock pistols — on May 22 at Gander Mountain in Aurora

    On May 28, six days after purchasing the Glock, Holmes purchased the shotgun used in the shootings from Bass Pro Shops in Denver

    On June 7, Holmes bought the AR-15 assault rifle rifle used in the attacks at a Gander Mountain store in Thornton, Colo

    On July 6, Holmes returned to the Bass Pro Shops store in Denver and bought the other Glock pistol.

    Holmes had a high capacity ammunition clip in the assault rifle, according to a second federal law enforcement official.

    The second official, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation, said Holmes had a drum-style clip in an AR-15 assault rifle used in the attack at a movie theater in Denver suburb Aurora, Colo.

    I have a hard time believing he would play something like that.
    Neighbors referred to it as techno or dubstep and it appears
    that JH's music taste was a bit sophisticated compared to
    that song, I think a blogger just got excited by the lyrics.

    I think I said before, but my guess is that he played the most obnoxious
    thing he could think of to ensure someone one would open the door.
    I find this AWOLNATION to be completely obnoxious,
    but on a different level from what i'm getting at.
    I'm thinking bass heavy, thumping, manic, alarming.

    I really don't know what he played. That's just what a lot of the underground blogs are saying. They asked the neighbor. Don't know if it's true or not..
