Jon Stewart responds to the Aurora, Colorado shooting.
In early July, Mr. Holmes ordered a Blackhawk Urban Assault Vest, a knife and two magazine holders from a Web site called Tactical Gear, according to an order slip provided by the company’s chief executive, Chad Weinman. He chose expedited two-day delivery to his apartment in the eastern Denver suburb of Aurora, where the shootings took place early Friday, just a few miles from Mr. Holmes’s apartment.
‘I think it conveys a sense of urgency and shows premeditation,’ Mr. Weinman said in an interview, adding that the company was ‘deeply saddened’ its gear had apparently been used in a mass killing.
The New York Times does not indicate whether Mr. Weinman’s company plans to stop selling murder accessories.
