72. How do we know Holme's was a gun nut?

From what I've read, he purchased all the guns he used from May thru June. Guns were his weapons of choice used to murder people. We don't know that he had a particular fascination with them prior to preparing for his homicidal rampage. He had a 4 year degree but was doing poorly in grad school and he dropped out. Maybe he was severely depressed? If this were a politically motivated killing, I would think he would have gone after a politician(s). He killed people in a movie theater. Maybe he had a fascination with the "Joker"......maybe he thought he was the "Joker"....maybe the chemicals in his brain are scrambled...don't know. But I don't think this was a poetical statement....just my opinion, of course.
