Uvalde school shooter Salvador Ramos legally purchased two AR-15 rifles last week after turning 18, including the one he used to slaughter 19 elementary school kids and their teachers in an unexplained attack.
The Call of Duty obsessed gunman bought two weapons including a Daniel Defense AR-15 worth $1,870. He posted a receipt for that purchase on the website Yubo, which was obtained by The Daily Dot on Tuesday after the shooting.
It is unclear if Ramos, who turned 18 last week, bought both weapons on the Daniel Defense website.
The site is run out of Georgia and operates by allowing customers to place orders online and then collect them from a local dealer.
There are no Daniel Defense dealers listed in Uvalde, but several are 100miles away in San Antonio. The ATF confirmed yesterday that Ramos purchased at least one weapon in a local firearms licensee.
His first purchase was on May 17 for one AR-15 rifle. The next day, he bought 375 rounds of 5.56 ammunition, according to ATF sources cited by Click2Houston.

On May 20, he bought another rifle. One of the weapons was found inside the truck he crashed into a ditch on Tuesday before opening fire at Robb Elementary School.
The Daniel Defense rifle was found inside the school, where Ramos was shot and killed by cops. It’s unclear how the teenager paid for the weapons.
He had a job at Wendy’s, where colleagues say he accosted female staff, but he was also bullied for his clothes and looking ‘poor’, according to classmates.
Ramos lived with his grandmother in Uvalde. He recently lived with his mother, but classmates say he often posted online about how she had kicked him out of their home.
‘He posted videos on his Instagram where the cops were there and he’d call his mom a b—- and say she wanted to kick him out.
These are the Daniel Defense dealer locations within 100 miles of the shooter’s hometown of Uvalde, Texas . There are also several firearms stores in the town

‘He’d be screaming and talking to his mom really aggressively,’ Nadia Reyes told The Washington Post.
On Tuesday, Ramos first opened fire on his grandmother – who has not been named – at their home.
He then drove to the school in his pick-up truck, opening fire on the kids inside at around 11.30am.
The gunman was brought down by a border agent who stormed the school.
Now, there are widespread calls for gun reform to stop a similar tragedy. President Biden said in an address to the nation last night: ‘Where in God’s name is our backbone?’
