Skip to comments.NBC Admitted: No ‘Assault Rifle’ Used in Newtown Shooting
Posted on 01/17/2013 9:57:45 AM PST by MeganC
When the president surrounds himself with children while giving his announcement that reasonable gun control measures are necessary, bear in mind that those assault rifles the government is sure to be going after were not even used in the Newton, Connecticut elementary shooting. As NBC admits in the video above, four handguns were used to carry out that despicable atrocity. This directly contradicts other reports.

Moderators: I searched for this on FR prior to posting it. That said, feel free to remove if it was posted under a different title.
This has been the most confusing fact to establish. Did he, or did he not use a Bushmaster AR? If not, as purported by NBC here, then the MSM has deliberately suppressed this information for political purposes.
The video is from Dec 15 and was based upon rumor and gossip, not verified info.
Familiar pattern... the media did their job perpetuating the charade until Obama rolled out his ‘emergency’ legislation. Now they are free to try to salvage their own credibility.
"A large quantity of unused ammunition was recovered at the school, along with three semi-automatic firearms found with Lanza: a .223-caliber Bushmaster XM-15 rifle, a 10mm Glock 20 SF handgun and a 9mm SIG Sauer handgun."
The media claimed a Bushmaster AR was found in a car in the parking lot but if you watch the video, it appears to actually be a shotgun.
Part of the confusion (besides the media rushing to be first with the story and not fact checking) is when the corner said something along the lines of they were shot with the ‘big gun’ people assumed she meant rifles. However, anyone here knows that the diameter of a .223 round is actually quite small and if he had a .45 pistol, that could have easily been considered the ‘big one’.
The long arm in the trunk wasn’t an AR-15 because the deputy is racking the bolt from the side. You cycle the bolt on a AR by pulling the charging handle from the rear.
What you see in the video is a shotgun. The officer ejects a shotgun round from the gun.
So do we need a 9/11 type commission to sort it all out? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? How about some facts?
What did 0bama know and when did he know it?
Does anyone believe NBC’s “admission” will have any effect on the Regime’s narrative?
How did the medical examiner make a determination so fast and why was he casually announcing it to the media?
The video of the “long gun” is about 1:22 and shows a semi-auto shotgun. However, that video starts with the trunk already open and the LEO with his hands over or in the interior of the trunk. Where is the video that starts before the trunk was opened?
Why is the LEO handling the “long gun” with his bare hands? Isn’t that destroying potential fingerprint evidence?
Good chance he was throwing up BS or talking out his rear.
Still waiting for a comprensive police report to be made public. You might see one in 2014.
I guess this means we can expect obama to recend his E.O.
I know, fat chance. And I used a small “O” on purpose.
comprensive = comprehensive
The mainstream media are barely even disguising the fact that they are nothing more then government propagandists anymore.
Are they so saturated with socialists and ‘fellow travelers’ that no one in their ranks will object to this? What is in the curriculum they teach in ‘journalism’ school these days?
I will trust a completed coroner’s report over a reporter who cannot recognize the difference between a shotgun and a AR-15.
I think this should put an end to YOUR speculation. At about the 50 second mark he (CT STATE POLICE PAUL VANCE) discusses the weapons USED as well as what was found in the TRUNK OF THE CAR
