Why have we been mislead? He had a AR-15, but left it in the trunk. crazy The shooter had four pistols instead.

It was a shotgun they found in the trunk.

I will say first, the parents of those murdered kids are going through hell on earth this Christmas without their children.
I can't imagine their grief.

There has been misinformation passed around on the weapons.
It was reported initially that the shooter was found with a Glock and a Sig.
A shotgun could be seen being taken out of a trunk by a cop in the vids.
I tend to think that the misinformation was just ignorant reporting (guessing).
Can't see a motive for the locals to fabricate an AR story in their "ban state".

This "conspiracy" vid shows them retrieving the gun from the trunk and clearing it. Side charging handle and the length looks like a semi-auto shotgun to me. Retrieving the gun starts at about 1:20.

that is deffinately not and AR.. it could however be a POS High Point rifle, which would be classified as an assault rifle, but it fires pistol rounds, not rifle rounds...

i almost certian that there are bullets that were still inside, and in the walls and such,that could be examined.. they should have no problem determining if it was a .223, or a 9mm, or a .45, or pretty much anything larger than the .223..

there should be ZERO debate on what gun was used...

and if there was no "assault rifle" used, then it shouldnt even be attacked...

That link you posted was in the "conspiracy" vid. I listened to it before you posted that link. How about a medical examiner report?

“This probably is the worst I have seen or the worst that I know any of my colleagues having seen,” said Dr. H. Wayne Carver II of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, where he’s been working for 31 years including 26 as chief.

Carver said he saw no difference in the pattern of shooting deaths between children and adults inside the school.

The weapon used primarily in the shootings was a long rifle, Carver said, and victims young and old were shot “all over” with some at close range and some not.

“I only did seven of the autopsies, the victims I had ranged from three to 11 wounds apiece and I only saw two of them with close range shooting,” Carver said.

The first report I heard, and I cannot say who I heard it from, was that the AR was in the trunk, not used, he had a Glock and a Sig with him but nothing was said about a shotgun until much later.

?????

If that is the truth, then why all the lies about him using an "assault rifle?"
crazy

How about we wait for a final report on the event before we jump to a conclusion? I agree that the difference in what the media is reporting now vs originally is concerning.

At first when they described it I thought it might be a saiga which is a shotgun on an AK platform but I dont see the gas return on top of the rifle. An FNAR gas return is inside the foregrip.

CBS and NBC reported the gun was a Russian Saiga shotgun..a closer look at the gun and the ejected round:

One of my guesses were right. I guess you can kinda see the gas return a little better in that vid. Those Saiga jam alot if loaded with wrong ammo. Check out youtube on those. Pretty nasty critter when rockn' and rolln'.

Maybe the media is figuring out how stupid they are by trying to beat the other guy vs. being thorough. They really srewed the pooch this time with all the misinformation that was being thrown around as the news broke. I havent heard about what kind of weapons the jackass that ambushed those firefighters used yet either.

A large quantity of unused ammunition was recovered from the school along with three semi-automatic firearms found with Adam Lanza: a .223-caliber Bushmaster XM-15 rifle,[61] a 10mm Glock 20 SF handgun [5][62] and a 9mm SIG Sauer handgun.[4][63] A shotgun was found in the car Lanza had driven to the school.

30 of those right now would be like buying gold when it was 200.

Did you think they'd go up in price so you could sell them or do you have a real need for 900 rounds when you go out shooting?

Yup. Also picking up my Tactical Solutions Paclite upper for my Ruger Mk 1 pistol tonight. 6" threaded barrel. That should pretty much round out the arsenal, including the two cans that are in process.

I have a lead on two lowers from a friend who bought 12 a while back. Might just have to buy and bank those.

Laws Are for Little People
And not for David Gregory.

By Mark Steyn

A week ago on NBC’s Meet the Press, David Gregory brandished on screen a high-capacity magazine. To most media experts, a “high-capacity magazine” means an ad-stuffed double issue of Vanity Fair with the triple-page perfume-scented pullouts. But apparently in America’s gun-nut gun culture of gun-crazed gun kooks, it’s something else entirely, and it was this latter kind that Mr. Gregory produced in order to taunt Wayne LaPierre of the NRA. As the poster child for America’s gun-crazed gun-kook gun culture, Mr. LaPierre would probably have been more scared by the host waving around a headily perfumed Vanity Fair. But that was merely NBC’s first miscalculation. It seems a high-capacity magazine is illegal in the District of Columbia, and the flagrant breach of D.C. gun laws is now under investigation by the police.

This is, declared NYU professor Jay Rosen, “the dumbest media story of 2012.” Why? Because, as CNN’s Howard Kurtz breezily put it, everybody knows David Gregory wasn’t “planning to commit any crimes.”

So what? Neither are the overwhelming majority of his fellow high-capacity-magazine-owning Americans. Yet they’re expected to know, as they drive around visiting friends and family over Christmas, the various and contradictory gun laws in different jurisdictions. Ignorantia juris non excusat is one of the oldest concepts in civilized society: Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Back when there was a modest and proportionate number of laws, that was just about doable. But in today’s America there are laws against everything, and any one of us at any time is unknowingly in breach of dozens of them. And in this case NBC were informed by the D.C. police that it would be illegal to show the thing on TV, and they went ahead and did it anyway: You’ll never take me alive, copper! You’ll have to pry my high-capacity magazine from my cold dead fingers! When the D.C. SWAT team, the FBI, and the ATF take out NBC News and the whole building goes up in one almighty fireball, David Gregory will be the crazed loon up on the roof like Jimmy Cagney in White Heat: “Made it, Ma! Top of the world!” At last, some actual must-see TV on that lousy network.

But, even if we’re denied that pleasure, the “dumbest media story of 2012” is actually rather instructive. David Gregory intended to demonstrate what he regards as the absurdity of America’s lax gun laws. Instead, he’s demonstrating the ever greater absurdity of America’s non-lax laws. His investigation, prosecution, and a sentence of 20–30 years with eligibility for parole after ten (assuming Mothers Against High-Capacity Magazines don’t object) would teach a far more useful lesson than whatever he thought he was doing by waving that clip under LaPierre’s nose.

To Howard Kurtz & Co., it’s “obvious” that Gregory didn’t intend to commit a crime. But, in a land choked with laws, “obviousness” is one of the first casualties — and “obviously” innocent citizens have their “obviously” well-intentioned actions criminalized every minute of the day. Not far away from David Gregory, across the Virginia border, eleven-year-old Skylar Capo made the mistake of rescuing a woodpecker from the jaws of a cat and nursing him back to health for a couple of days. For her pains, a federal Fish & Wildlife gauleiter accompanied by state troopers descended on her house, charged her with illegal transportation of a protected species, issued her a $535 fine, and made her cry. Why is it so “obvious” that David Gregory deserves to be treated more leniently than a sixth grader? Because he’s got a TV show and she hasn’t?

Anything involving guns is even less amenable to “obviousness.” A few years ago, Daniel Brown was detained at LAX while connecting to a Minneapolis flight because traces of gunpowder were found on his footwear. His footwear was combat boots. As the name suggests, the combat boots were returning from combat — eight months of it, in Iraq’s bloody and violent al-Anbar province. Above the boots he was wearing the uniform of a staff sergeant in the USMC Reserve Military Police and was accompanied by all 26 members of his unit, also in uniform. Staff Sergeant Brown doesn’t sound like an “obvious” terrorist. But the TSA put him on the no-fly list anyway. If it’s not “obvious” to the government that a serving member of the military has any legitimate reason for being around ammunition, why should it be “obvious” that a TV host has?

Three days after scofflaw Gregory committed his crime, a bail hearing was held in Massachusetts for Andrew Despres, 20, who’s charged with trespassing and possession of ammunition without a firearms license. Mr. Despres was recently expelled from Fitchburg State University and was returning to campus to pick up his stuff. Hence the trespassing charge. At the time of his arrest, he was wearing a “military-style ammunition belt.” Hence, the firearms charge.

His mom told WBZ that her son purchased the belt for $20 from a punk website and had worn it to class every day for two years as a “fashion statement.” He had no gun with which to fire the bullets. Nevertheless, Fitchburg police proudly displayed the $20 punk-website ammo belt as if they’d just raided the Fitchburg mafia’s armory, and an obliging judge ordered Mr. Despres held on $50,000 bail. Why should there be one law for Meet the Press and another for Meet Andrew Despres? Because David Gregory throws better cocktail parties?

The argument for letting him walk rests on his membership of a protected class — the media. Notwithstanding that (per Gallup) 54 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the NRA while only 40 percent have any trust in the media, the latter regard themselves as part of the ruling class. Which makes the rest of you the ruled. Laws are for the little people — and little people need lots of little laws, ensnaring them at every turn.

This is all modern life is. Ernest Hemingway had a six-toed cat. The cat begat. (Eat your heart out, Doctor Seuss.) So descendants of his six-toed cat still live at the Hemingway home in Key West. Tourists visit the property. Thus, the Department of Agriculture is insisting that the six-toed cats are an “animal exhibit” like the tigers at the zoo, and therefore come under federal regulation requiring each to be housed in an individual compound with “elevated resting surfaces,” “electric wire,” and a night watchman. Should David Gregory be treated more leniently than a domestic cat just because when Obama tickles his tummy he licks the president’s hand and purrs contentedly?

There are two possible resolutions: Gregory can call in a favor from some Obama consigliere who’ll lean on the cops to disappear the whole thing. If he does that, he’ll be contributing to the remorseless assault on a bedrock principle of free societies — equality before the law. Laws either apply to all of us or none of us. If they apply only to some, they’re not laws but caprices — and all tyranny is capricious.

Or he can embrace the role in which fate has cast him. Sometimes a society becomes too stupid to survive. Eleven-year-old girls fined for rescuing woodpeckers, serving Marines put on the no-fly list, and fifth-generation family cats being ordered into separate compounds with “electric wire” fencing can all testify to how near that point America is. But nothing “raises awareness” like a celebrity spokesman. Step forward, David Gregory! Dare the prosecutor to go for the death penalty — and let’s make your ammo the non-shot heard round the world!

No fear, I was stocked up fairly well, just needed a few more items, and I've been working a lot this year saving up for a few of the items I just purchased, only about $800. Was waiting to pull the trigger on a number of items, and my dealer got them in stock from an order I made a few weeks back (takes a few weeks to get a suppressor through the Form 3 route from Mfg. to dealer). I have a lifetime of ammo and components for each firearm I own, plus mags, etc. I'm a buy and hold type, not an opportunist. I am not the guy who will be out there dropping $50 for a P-mag, or $300-500/1,000 .223 rounds. I have enough of those already.

President Obama looks like he'll be firearm salesman of the year, once again.

Actually, while the gun stores might see a good blip in their sales for the end of the year, they probably won't like the significant drop off in cash flow and sales that takes place next month, and through March of maybe as long as June. There'll be a few weak ones who will fold unless they can get new inventory.

You're not the "panic buyer" who just spent his rent on a high capacity magazine because the NRA just told him that Obama is on his way over to his house to grab it.

From talking to Randy today it seems that we should have no trouble defining what a "high capacity magazine" is.

A "high capacity magazine" is a $10 part that is selling for $40, which means buyers are either four times as afraid, or four times as dumb as they were two weeks ago.

Or both.

Sad thing is, $40 is a good buy as of right now.

If you don't think so, check out eBay and Gunbroker.

Depending on condition, I have seen the metal mags sell for $15-$25.

I have seen used PMAGs listed for $20-$30.

Used is definitely more of a gamble on the resale market.

Opps........It looks like someone may have rushed to a conclusion and/or "cooked" some of the information for their own special interests: Could that really happen???....LOL

And no this is not from FOX News.

The apparent truth is matching up closely to the original reports that handguns were used.

The initial reports, immediately after the shooting, was that handguns were used and an Bushmaster was found in his vehicle.

Then it changed, about 36 hours later, to he used the Bushmaster inside the school.

Now the above news update stating that the Bushmaster never left his vehicle.

Very interesting how trained professionals could have such a hard time identifying the weapons used.

And Hank.......you speak in such certainties yet certainly have no first hand knowledge.

We've gone over that vid and shown it was bad reporting. The weapon removed from the trunk was a Saiga and the medical examiner said all of the gunshot wounds were from a rifle.

Perhaps it is semantics, couldn't any weapon used to assault someone be classified as an "assault weapon?" I really hate that term. In reality it is meaningless and arbitrary.

We could just as easily have chosen to call them "defense weapons" as they (the governments definition I guess) are much more commonly used for that purpose.

Not semantic at all ... just the truth.

"assault weapon" is a stupid term that can apply to anything, including a butter knife.

Maybe the Gubmint should re-brand the DoD as the "Department of Assault", and start calling "defense spending" what it is..."assault spending"...or, more accurately, "let's waste all our money to make a handful of defense contractors who donate to our campaigns fuckin rich...Department."

I'm still not real clear on what an "assault weapon" is...it's almost like "if it looks like one, then it is"...

Fish on...

The "assault rifle" was originally reported as found in the BACKSEAT of the vehicle was identified as a BushMaster immediately.

Interesting that it was called out by name.

The weapon in the trunk appears to be a Saiga shotgun....not much doubt.

Anyway how do the first responders identify a Glock and a Sig Sauer, by name, as the weapons used inside the school?

These same first responders to the actual location inside the school, including police and firefighters, should be able to tell the difference handguns and a Bushmaster "assault rifle"

Teen shot and killed in Far Rockaway, Queens by two masked men armed with AK-47, pistol


A Queens mom who hoped to see her teen son become a marine biologist instead saw him Saturday in the morgue.

Xavier Granville, 17, was gunned down by a pair of ski-masked gunmen — one toting an AK-47 assault rifle — after a late-night party in Far Rockaway, police sources said.

“My son didn’t deserve to go out like this,” said a distraught Shakira Granville after identifying the body of her only child. “The pain I feel. I’m just in shock.”

Xavier was a cheerful teen who loved video games and the ocean — with plans to become a marine biologist, according to his mom.

One witness said he thought the fatal shooting of the high school junior was a case of mistaken identity. “I don’t think those bullets were intended for him,” said the witness, who declined to give his name. “Everyone loved Xavier.”

The two gunmen opened fire around 12:30 a.m. as Granville was headed for home, according to the witness. The second shooter was armed with a .45-caliber pistol, and the two masked men began spraying gunfire on Beach 15th St. near Heyson Road.

While the motive for the slaying remained a mystery, a police source indicated that Granville had possible gang ties. He died from a bullet to the head.

If only Granville had his own AK and could have fired back, this regrettable incident could have been avoided...because, as we all know, the answer is always "more guns".

That story has to be false due to the fact that AK 47's are illegal in New York.

Bloomberg said so......

Interesting that it was called out by name.

The weapon in the trunk appears to be a Saiga shotgun....not much doubt.

Anyway how do the first responders identify a Glock and a Sig Sauer, by name, as the weapons used inside the school?

These same first responders to the actual location inside the school, including police and firefighters, should be able to tell the difference handguns and a Bushmaster "assault rifle"


The murder weapon:

_ Bushmaster .223-caliber: lightweight with a high capacity, it also is popular with law enforcement and the military, and is commonly seen at shooting competitions. Two men convicted in a series of sniper killings in the Washington, D.C.-area in 2002 used a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle that they fired from the trunk of a car at randomly picked victims. Some models have a detachable magazine that can hold up to 30 rounds. The medical examiner in Connecticut said it appeared all the children and school staff were shot with the same high-powered rifle, some repeatedly, some at close range.

Also found in the school:

_ Glock 10 mm: a larger and more powerful weapon than the widely popular 9 mm, it is in many respects similar to the 9 mm. It is a lightweight and comparatively affordable weapon that is often used for target shooting and for personal protection.

_ Sig Sauer 9 mm: considered an upper-tier, quality product, it's comparatively expensive, and its range of uses include elite military and police units.

The Bushmaster and two other weapons were found near the body of Lanza, who killed himself at the school.

It was not clear the make of the weapon found outside the school.

The phrase "I know it when I see it" is a colloquial expression by which a speaker attempts to categorize an observable fact or event, although the category is subjective or lacks clearly defined parameters. The phrase was famously used by United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart to describe his threshold test for obscenity in Jacobellis v. Ohio (1964). Obscenity is not protected speech under the Miller test, and can therefore be censored.

I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description ["hard-core pornography"]; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that. [Emphasis added.]
—Justice Potter Stewart, concurring opinion in Jacobellis v. Ohio 378 U.S. 184 (1964), regarding possible obscenity in The Lovers.

The expression became one of the most famous phrases in the entire history of the Supreme Court.[1]

Stewart's "I know it when I see it" standard was praised as an example of candor[2] and "realistic and gallant."[3]

A well-known quotation of this phrase is found in Goldfinger, when M asks Bond: "What do you know about gold?" and Bond replies with "I know it when I see it."[4]

Big Daddy has it right. I watched and absorbed the entire first 48 - 72 hours (every news outlet for an unbiased view) of Newtown and it WAS widely reported that ONLY handguns were used inside the school and the 15 was in the vehicle. They even had a picture of it leaning up against said vehicle after they found it. Then some 2-3 days afterwards (and after the Dem Libtards immediately politicized the moment)....poof! The 15 was in the school and did all of the damage (instead of the handguns)? What, did the little prick run back outside and put it in the trunk and then run back in?

WTF? I mean really? Seriously?

The coroner / forensices teams get an immediate lifetime hero pass because of what they saw and did while doing their job. However maybe I'm dense here and missing something important, but hollow points (used as reported) from either the 15 or a handgun do what all hollow points do - and that's explode. So unless they piece mealed rounds back together to match its corresponding weapon....how would they know which rounds came from which gun?

Fully jacketed rounds would just go right through and Forensics could more easily determine a .223 from a 9mm right?

Can someone please explain any part of the above to me?

Hank the reports by the Huffington Post and other news outlets 36 hours after the shooting are not the issue or in dispute.

The issue is the vastly different initial reports from the scene and the subsequent follow-up reports.

Hank .........re-watch the video I posted and pay close attention when they report that several Federal and State Officials state that "only handguns" were used in the killings. Pay CLOSE attention to the segment....14 seconds to 50 seconds.

Don't argue with me.........argue with NBC and their sources.

Not arguing ColeyG, simply wondering out loud how such "inaccuracies" can be present when the physical gun evidence was there to see, touch and analyze.

Pretty hard to mix up the ID of such weapons.

The evidence must have "morphed" itself after about 48 hours.

That Mean Bastard is all over it.

How damn hard can it be to make a clear statement about what weapons were found where?

Is it too much to expect.....no, DEMAND an accurate statement and retraction(s) of all statements that are now known to be inaccurate?

It's the exact same video Sol Duc posted to start the thread. It originally aired on the day after the shooting. This entire thread has consisted of arguments about it with various sites and videos posted to disclaim it or argue in it's favor.

My feeling is that video is in error factually and I base that feeling on the ME report. I honestly don't believe someone can shoot 27 people 3 to 11 times with a handgun.

I don't know if its arguing about the accuracy of the media (which would be pointless to Todd's point). Rather I think its about the HUGE frickin' difference between the 15 being used or not (and being used as a "late" trump card for the grabbers). I could give two chits about the media. I want to know which weapons were actually used. There is no national discussion on "assult rifles" if the 15 was left in the trunk. See the point now?

And you expect the media to report that?

The news isn't about truth these days, it is about being first, and dramatic, and maintaining viewership. The truth is an afterthought. If that is what you seek, you will need to look elsewhere.

So if the victims are huddled together will a bullet fired from a handgun go through one victim and enter another victims body? By claiming 3 to 11 wounds per body would make it seem that around 200 rounds were fired. I would not expect shots from a handgun fired at close range to only impact one body.

Each part of the competing media tries to get the scoop,beat each other to be the first to come out with the story and in the process screws up big time . As days go by the story gets straightened out. It's not that complicated. The video that keeps getting posted here looks to be dated 12-15. More accurate information has come out since then.

Do I have this right? You know the media is not reporting the truth and you want the real truth? How do you know the media is not reporting the truth? A multitude of studies have shown how two people seeing the same event report details from two seemingly different events. The phenomena is called belief dependent reality. People view events filtered through their belief system . They form a belief and then use the facts that only support that belief. Sounds like some of you pro black guns or pro guns only want information that favors your view ? Is it really important which weapons were used?

The media has no more interest in "the truth" than its customers do...most the dudes in this thread don't want "the truth" ... they want "the truth that fits their opinion"...and the news media, being in the entertainment and ad selling business first, gives its customers what they want.

I can't speak for everyone else, but I can tell you straight up that I want the truth. And yes, Tom, I think I have that right. (I suspect, however, that "legally" that may not be true?)

Is there a way to fix it........or do you think that it is important?

The truth as I pointed out is subjective to the person forming it. The facts will come out at some point in time , typically 6 months to a year from the event. Why do people allow the debate to be framed by someone with an agenda? Tools nor methods are the issue here , don't let the freedom takers frame the debate by getting you defending bunny trails.

True that. The subject matter in itself is emotion-charged and plays right into agenda-based deceit......(see sig line).

Not that it changes the outcome, but I'd like to know the total number and kinds of guys Lanza had both in the car and with him and what gun or guns were used to commit the murders. That's just basic crime statistics that police collect everywhere.

Hank, why do you think Lanza couldn't have killed all his victims with handguns? The WVU shooter had only handguns and killed more, and presumably more difficult victims in terms of their ages and locations.

I'm fine with giving up more gun rights. Safety first, right? Tap my phone if it makes everyone safer. Whatever. That said, I'm still trying imagine someone with this kid's issues, armed like seal team six, wiping out a classroom with the courage to save a bullet for himself. He seems to be a bit of an overachiever with his skillset. Wonder what kind of medication he was on,if any.
I finished last in my class, so I'm still just trying to learn from the smart kids....peace

The ME report, the shell casings they found inside, the rifle they found inside and the multiple 30-round magazines loaded with .223 rounds. They said he brought enough of that type ammo inside with him to kill every kid in that school.

Hank,

Your answer explains what Lanza did and what he could have done, but you didn't answer why you think he couldn't have killed all his victims using handguns only.

Salmo,

The VA Tech shooting proves Lanza could have shot and killed his victims with handguns. I've already mentioned the VA Tech shooting in a post. My point was and is the evidence suggests Lanza didn't use a handgun to shoot his victims.

Hank,

OK. I know what was reported. I was just curious why you thought Lanza couldn't have done it with hand guns when there is reasonable evidence to the contrary. Now that you say, "The VA Tech shooting proves Lanza could have shot and killed his victims with handguns." we're good, even if you're contradicting your previous statement. I'm just being thorough about cleaning up the details.

Salmo,

Perhaps you misunderstood me or I didn't state in the correct way. Should I have said "he couldn't have shot those people with handguns because he wasn't using a handgun to begin with"?

Yeah Hank, how one says things matters, I've learned. How you said it had me thinking you believed he couldn't have used hand guns, which is different than believing he didn't use hand guns because the reports or other evidence indicated he didn't.

Even though you're a RWWJ, you're an otherwise intelligent and articulate person, so I was trying to figure out why you believed "he couldn't have used hand guns." Thanks for taking the time to clarify.

Actually at this point I'm uncertain what he did use. Without a time stamp on each report, it's hard to update and know which statement supercedes the last. At this point Lanza apparently had four handguns in total, but only two have been identified, the Sig and the Glock, and the Bushmaster and a shotgun. But if there were 4 handguns, why were only 2 identified? Or were there really only 2, but some erroneous reports said there were 4? Not that every detail matters, but getting the weapon inventory straight is imperative if Congress and Legislatures are intent on enacting new gun legislation.

I have to say, even though you're the liberal/centrist/conservative/New Age/touchy-feely sort, I respect your opinions and you state those opinions both eloquently and succinctly. smile

I type the Newtown shooting into my browser every now and then just to see if there are newer developments beyond Dec 19th. The reporting has been all over the board with 2 guns, 4 guns, assault rifle found in trunk, shotgun in trunk, etc.

The reports that are the most consistent are 2 pistols and the AR were found in the school and the AR was used in the shootings.I'm going with that based on the majority of the articles I've seen saying the same thing. Until there's a final report that's agreed with by all of the investigators, all we really have here in this thread is speculation, assumption, conspiracy, doubt and confusion.

For the love of God, can we agree that an AR was the weapon of choice? crazy
