I doubt he had automatic weapons, semi-auto... more than likely.
If you do it legally, you need to be a dealer, class III if I recall correctly. This would also allow you to own suppressors (at least in Texas). Course in Texas we can do things like living trusts and corporations that hold legal "possession" of said item, but that's a whole different topic.
If they were automatic, well he's clearly already a criminal and we couldn't prevent his obtaining it if we wanted to.
The reason these jackasses target schools, theaters, etc is because there are large concentrations of UNARMED citizens congregating in one area presenting a large amount of easily eliminated targets. There is a reason I carry into every movie I see, every mall I walk into, every public park even. Very often I will in a bank also, yes its not legal but unless I'm walking through checkpoints or being searched chances are mine is on me.
There is no need for hypothetical "what ifs" but suffice to say if we allowed the people who worked in these establishments to exercise their rights to the second amendment perhaps less of these situations would occur.
We've all heard the line, "An armed society is a polite society." and its true so long as we have intelligent, rational people exercising their rights. Those people keep the nut jobs form doing stupid shit probably 7 out of 10 times (I'd venture a guess). Intelligent does not necessarily mean educated!
In my opinion the solution will never be and CANNOT be increased restrictions on our rights to bear arms. Its not a coincidence when gun ownership rises in an area that the number of violent crimes decreases.
Food for thought my brothers.
