Where did Loughner get the money?

The Wall Street Journal has unearthed 131 posts written in an online forum for gamers between April and June 2010. Some of the comments are chatter about weight lifting, rejection by women, or his difficulties job hunting (he wrote that he hadn't had a paycheck in six months, submitted 65 applications without an interview, and confessed to a "mental breakdown" after getting fired from five jobs)....

So, as of November 30th, when he bought a $500 Glock, he had been out of minimum-pay jobs for about a year. The authorities have yet to explain how he managed to afford it.
