    As far as the media is concerned, AR's are flintlocks, AK's slingshots, pea shooters, revolvers......you get the idea.

    MR870 - You are the Dumbass! Go check your facts before you get hot and bothered into making another stupid statement! Several Children were hit multiple times by a 223. Do you have a pistol that shoots 223?

    There is such a thing as a 223 pistol.

    The standard 223 round, with a FMJ will go through several men at close range.

    Imagine what it will do to a child's body when they are all bunched up, huddled together in fear, trying to escape.

    Of course will not know how many rounds were fired from what, until the report is made public.

    These liberal college educated media employees are not idiots. Calling them names does no good. They are anti-gun or have never been around the shooting sports. Call them names...you make them mad and they will get even in their next column or report. Have a media day at your gun club and invite them. Teach them. Show them. Get them on our side. But no names..it will work against us. Win them over if you can. ed nichols

    I've owned a couple of .223 pistols. They are single shots, but they make them. A Remington XP-100, and a Thompson Contender.

    Thank you for the 223 pistol update. yes I believe there are a few around. Thompson has a barrel for example. The reports I heard are that the .223 were from the Bushmaster and several Children were shot many times. Paranoia, mis-information and instilling fear IMO does disservice to those who were massacered.

    "The reports I heard are that the .223 were from the Bushmaster and several Children were shot many times."

    So just where did you hear that from the misinformation you are/were getting on TV or online???? By the way tell us how they know the .223 bullets came from a bushmaster?????

    Or does that come from you your wishful thinking????

    Bob, I suspect they simply picked up the rifle lying next to Lanza's dead body and looked at the "Bushmaster" stamped into it's barrel.

    The report will be out soon enough and then we can put this to bed.

    548 the only one that said there was even a AR 15 involved was the medical examiner. The last video I saw was that the only firearms found in the school were handguns.

    Or maybe you are like the other guy a wishful thinker????

    I found it really odd that the ME definitively stated the deaths were caused by a long gun, (I read rifle). Wouldn't the key piece of evidence in knowing what gun was used be the empty casings on the floor of the school?

    Why have we not heard from the police or anyone else? My theory is the truth is not consistent with the story the media wants to tell. Hard to get support for an assault weapons ban when an AR15 style firearm wasn't used in the crime.

    We actually know next to nothing as far as what he or they used, how many rounds expended, what caliber or much of anything else for that matter. In fact, I have been wondering exactly how those 6 little kids got to the kindly old grandfatherly man with the toys scattered about. I would think that all kids should have been in school. How did they get out of the school and to that guys house? No film of anything, just stills. More questions than answers at any rate. John
