ATLANTA -

There was a mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado on Friday, killing 12 people and injuring dozens more.

According to FOX news, the federal assault weapons ban expired in 2004, and the shooting in Colorado has some calling for it to be reinstated. The alleged shooter, James Holmes, was armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and three other weapons.

The Associated Press reports that police have said that Holmes began buying guns at Denver-area stores nearly two months before Friday's shooting and that he received at least 50 packages in four months at his home and at school.
