NH store says shooter's body armor pricey
WINDHAM, N.H. (AP) -- A New Hampshire shop that specializes in police protective gear says the amount of gear used in the movie massacre in Colorado could have cost $2,000 to $3,000.
Raymond Bellia of Granite State Police Supply tells WMUR-TV that his store wouldn't sell any tactical body armor to a civilian. But he says the amount of gear that James Holmes was wearing during the time of the shooting could have cost up to $3,000.
Belia says anyone can buy the same protective gear because there is no required background check by state or federal law .
But Granite State, in Windham, doesn't sell sophisticated protective gear to anyone but law enforcement officials.
