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.
“The gun recovered from the car trunk was a pump shotgun.”
No, it was a semiautomatic shotgun.
“I thought I read the police found the rifle in his car.”
That was an early report that turned out to be inaccurate. The video is easy to find on youtube, go watch it yourself. If you know anything about guns, it’s pretty easy to tell that it is a shotgun and not any kind of rifle. They even zoom in at the 6 second mark so that you can clearly see that what they are ejecting from the weapon is a shotgun shell and not any type of rifle ammunition.
I think this is what you’re looking for:
“No, it was a semiautomatic shotgun.”
Opps, you are right. Sorry for adding to the confusion.
would those children be just as dead if he waited for recess and then drove a car over them again and again... it is the killer who is responsible and not the tool... though he is a tool...
the deadliest school killing was done with dynamite. an angry public servant that lost an election.
9-11 happened with box cutters and planes.
do not fall for some guns are bad. stick with the constitution and history.
governments kill more people. but not those who are armed... never people who are armed.
This video may also be of help in dispelling the confusion that NBC has helped spread:
At the 6:04, a reporter asks the Medical Examiner and police officials about the “long rifle” being found in the trunk of the car, and he is told by two separate officials that he is incorrect.
Hey, no problem. At least you were trying to clear up the confusion and not add to it, which is more than I can say for a lot of the FReepers posting about this topic lately.
Why then do the police have those same assault weapons?
Second Amendment protections were put into place so the the people could shoot operatives of an oppressive government, not deer.
The sister is wearing the Emilie’s dress, what’s the big deal? I guess some people have never heard of “hand-me-down’s”.
I mean, if you are proposing that is not the sister, but Emilie, then where is the third sister? They sent the supposedly dead girl to a photo op with the President, and are hiding the other sister, who is supposed to be alive? What kind of cockamamie conspiracy lets the supposed murder victims do photo ops in the first place?
Emilie was in on faking the moon landing with NASA,too.
There are two theories about arguing with a liberal________________ Nether one works.
Speaking of faking the moon landings, here is something truly hilarious I stumbled on over in the weird part of youtube:
Now this is taken from a “mockumentary” that puts together a bunch of footage to make it seem like Stanley Kubrick helped fake the moon landings. However, the mockumentary was completely open about how fake it was. Nevertheless, several people have posted clips from it on youtube, citing it as evidence for a moon landing hoax, and many gullible commenters refuse to believe that it isn’t a real documentary!
If you think you read it, you probably did - tell the jerk that’s the way it was, amd if he objects, tell him to look it up himself on the internet.....
