After being asked how the shooting compared to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Holmes replied: "Only in the number of victims. There is no indication this was a terrorist event, but I hope we all understand that with all these guns loose in the society, it doesn’t take a terrorist to do what was done here today."

Open and concealed carry of a handguns, rifles, or shotguns in Washington D.C. is prohibited, unless someone has a valid registration to carry a firearm in their home or place of business.

However, people can buy guns freely in neighboring Virginia, about five munites away.
