    On Friday the 14th, I was listening to the news about the horrific shooting. Am I the only one that heard on the news that the shooter had 3 guns, 2 handguns and 1 assault rifle. The news stated that police had found the assault rifle in the shooters car. Did I hear wrong? Now they are saying that this piece of dung used the rifle. Which is true? Would our gov. officials lie to make the general public fall in line with their assault weapon ban and look like heros? I would like to know.

    The medical examiner stared that all of the wounds were from the "long weapon".

    The LAMESTREAM MEDIA has had an enormous problem with getting any of the facts correct. Do not forget who wants to run this country, the news media. They will and always have jammed lies down our throats til they believe the lies themselves.

    There has been a lot of misinformation from the police and media.

    As it stands at this point, it APPEARS that the shooter used a Glock in an unspecified caliber, a SIG/Sauer P-226 9mm, and an AR15 presumably in .223 to commit the killings. There was a black shotgun in the trunk, possibly a Saiga.

    It's also interesting no photos of the guns have been released yet. Usually the police are right on that.

    The State Police stated the Glock was a 10mm.

    Bill, I watched the news on ABC and they stated that the long gun was found in the back seat of the car. It's so very hard to believe anyone reporting the news these days. Jackie B.

    An AR-15 is not an assault weapon it's a semi auto.

    Media, also fails to mention the broken home, did functional family which this gunman came from.
    His mother who was gone for two days before the shooting, regularly went on mini vacations leaving her son at home by himself ( a loner )

    Why would anyone come onto this site seeking "facts"?
