For the month that the murders in Newtown have been in the news, I have heard two totally different stories as to the weapon used.
Some stories claim the perp used the semiautomatic rifle while others (as recently as Saturday) claim he used the two pistols he had in his possession.
Which is it?
He used the rifle to kill the victims, and a pistol to kill himself.
According the the strange medical examiner he used the rifle on the victims. After watching a video of his news conference I am suspect of anything he says - he is a very strange man.
coroner reported .223 wounds to victims.
You will never know the truth.
They will tell you what to believe.

He used insanity to kill the children and better judgement to kill himself. We all wish he had used better judgement first.
I’m doubtful that we truly know what really happened there. Too many questions...
One squeeze equals one bullet. I think the majority think the clip can be emptied with one squeeze.
What was the motive? Not hearing much about that. Wonder why?
There is a moral in this for all of us...Never go with the initial press reports!
Initial (verbal) reports said the rifle was still in the trunk when the police arrived. When the coroner's report came out some days later it reported that all the children were killed by .223 caliber (rifle) bullets. Further, the "official" police report said the only cartridge brass recovered was .223 which begs the question of where was the 9mm brass (pistol) that the shooter used on himself?
It appears the MSM, in their haste to "break" a big story, will report rumor as fact. If there are no rumors available, they'll make something up.
Don’t you mean you read the disputed claim on a blog or in a column written days ago?
The media has chosen to bury this story (for whatever reason) rather than continue to report on it and provide updated details as to what actually happened that day.
Aside from a small handful of very old M-16’s or smuggled/illegally modified rifles, all you can legally get in AR rifles is semi-automatic. One trigger pull, one shot. You can get a “bump firing” type of stock or device that will cause the recoil motion of the rifle to make your finger cycle the trigger automatically. It can also be done (with practice) by holding the rifle a certain way.
Here’s a home-made “bump board” for a semi-auto pistol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlFZOBiWRko
There is no media interest in this case other than banning guns ...
1. No right wing manifesto found
2. Single moms are a ‘Rat constituency
3. No Christians to bash
4. No Bush to blame
5. CT gun laws failed to stop it
6. Kooks are a ‘Rat protected class
7. Gun free zones are PC
8. The truth shines light on the ‘Rat cockroaches
“What was the motive?”
He was insane. ‘nuf said?
Pump shotgun in trunk, you can see the cop ejecting the plastic shells

Exactly what I recall. Thanks.
So strange I wouldn't want him anywhere near any departed loved one. He was enjoying his 15 minutes so much he was laughing. The police said Lanza had two handguns but they had to change their story when the freaky M.E. did his bizarre presser. He said the victims were shot with a long gun. As if he couldn't identify the rifle from the evidence?
He used whatever is necessary to make the consumer more emotional and less logical.
