Default Assault Weapon not used in CT.

Saw this posed earlier. Evidently some federal investigators have stated that the only firearms that were used were 4 handguns and the AR-15 was left in the vehicle.

Also confirms the story that he was denied purchase of a rifle, although, I am not sure if he was denied or he just didn't want to wait the 10 day period.

There's so many contradicting stories about this right now. Of course the media and libs took the one with "assault rifle" and ran with it.

I think this pretty much sums it up.

That was the original report. That the "Assault Weapon" was left on the back seat of the car.

If this report is true then it just goes to show you can't believe a word from the mainstream media. They are going to twist a story to fit their agenda. There is no truth in reporting anymore. It's all about sensationalizing and make the story even more horrific than it already really is. It's all based on hearsay instead of facts.

That is like present day law based on past cases not the Constitution. That evil gun would have hurt somebody just by being there.

There was recent story here locally that also highlighted just how shady the media is. There were two hunting rifles in a truck behind a shop and the owner was inside asleep. It was reported as an abandoned truck full of military style weapons. How about the outright lies reported about the Martin Zimmerman incident? Or one of the networks claiming that you could shoot someone's head off at 1000 yds with a shotgun?

Has anyone seen this report anywhere else? I can't get through the scary gun stories to find this reported anywhere else.
