Debating a lib on the news of the day. Where do I find the information that the Sandy Hook shooter actually did not use the assault rifle but the handguns to shoot. I thought I read the police found the rifle in his car. Thank you :)
I don’t think it really matters to tell you the truth. There are people who could do as much damage with a revolver and a bunch of HKS speed loaders.
Your argument with the ‘liberal’ really isn’t about capacity, how quickly a gun shoots, or anything like that. Your liberal is only drawing you into a conditional argument about every citizen’s right to defend oneself with whatever is necessary.
As I recall, the bushmaster wasn’t the trunk of the car, which was reported by the police initially on scene. Then during a press briefing the coroner reported that the killer used an assault rifle.
Many conflicts here, not sure what to think anymore.
Yes, that’s the word here. In every shooting like this, the police waste absolutely no time in holding up the gun that was used to the media. Never happened here. Now, why do you think that is? They always try to demoniize the gun. Just my two cents.
Weren’t all the weapons legally owned by the mother? It wasn’t that they were illegal but rather the intent of the deranged shooter.
Not sure what type of gun it was, but video of police officer discharging bullets from a rifle at the trunk of the car. Thought that would be against crime scene evidence protocol.
What you really need are (1) a better, more informative headline and (2) the Chat forum. :)
And yes, GO CARDS!
“Where do I find the information that the Sandy Hook shooter actually did not use the assault rifle....”
There was never an assault rifle involved in the Sandy Hook shooting — the Bushmaster that was allegedly used is not a fully automatic weapon, hence is not an assault rifle.
Forget pretty much everything that was first reported. The most credible report was that of an official in a news conference that said all the victims were shot multiple times with the Bushmaster. The gun recovered from the car trunk was a pump shotgun.
Ugh. The lib is insane. She doesnt want to hear anything. Now its Scalia said that the assault weapon is not under the 2nd Amendment.
If he goes with that tripe, he will be soundly laughed out of the room.
You can’t reason with insanity and emotion. Just tell her she is insane and that when she feels like talking logically to give you a call.
What was the date of the photo?
Sorry to jump in... I believe it was post-shooting.
“Not sure what type of gun it was, but video of police officer discharging bullets from a rifle at the trunk of the car.”
There is no such video, only video of him ejecting cartridges from a shotgun.
