Glenn Rotkovich said yesterday that he received an email application on June 25 from Holmes, who shot dead 12 people and injured 58 others at a cinema early on Friday.
Holmes said he was not a user of illegal drugs or a convicted felon, so Mr Rotkovich followed up by calling his apartment to invite him to a mandatory orientation at the Lead Valley Range in Byers, Colorado, the following week.
