    Not sure if this has been posted but this list from Connecticut government confirms what firearms were used during the Sandy Hook massacre.


    Once again I apologize if this has been posted already.

    That's actually THE FIRST "official accounting of the guns involved" that I personally have seen! Thank you. Much better than just media BS that nobody knows is true or not.

    That's the January press release, so not exactly new, but it does prove an point that needs hammering home.

    This information, and much more like it, has been circulating internally amongst police departments, government agencies and select private organizations.

    I've been trying to suggest this to people on here, and other places, for a while so that they won't be building their forts on false information such as " The AR was never used, we saw it on tv in the trunk"

    I hope everyone realizes there is more that is still confidential. *wink* *wink* and all that.

    That is both confusing AND misinforming as that is a 'standard' capacity magazine.

    But I digress.

    Wait only one mag for the AR? That doesn't add up with the claims that some victims were shot a dozen times.

    That's what I was thinking.

    The report details the weapons, not the accessories. Or even what brand shoes he was wearing.

    Wait for the full report and work from facts - as best as we can expect. It's still a point that legislation is trying to be passed as quickly as possible to take advantage of the public's attention. The facts, however, are really unimportant to most. The average voter doesn't have a clue, anyway. If they did, the press would have been shouted down on the use of the phrase "assault rifle" years ago, and the AWB never even attempted.

    What Lanza did or didn't use inside the school has, unfortunately, very little impact on how the public supports new laws. It's your voice writing to Senators that might be tempted to vote for a ban that counts.

    I found the wording describing the magazine as "high capacity" interesting also. Seems like something that would have been inserted by someone with an agenda. I wonder if the Sig or the Glock had "high capacity" magazines also?

    Thank you. I have been wondering about this also.

    According to the post of a state trooper on the scene, Adam Lanza fired over 150 rounds from the Bushmaster. Then there is this:

    Like Hungersford, Dunblane and Port Arthur there will be tons of questions officially unanswered, but one thing known for sure: these atrocities are used to call for taking guns from millions not involved in the crimes.

    Thats what I was thinking. To hear the MSM on the subject you'd believe that Lanza had a wheelbarrow full of mags.
    Now only One? That doesn't pass the smell test.

    Also, I guess that I was wrong about the AR being in the trunk. I remember in one the of first news clips seeing a cop taking what appeared to be an AR out of the car's trunk. I just looked up the Izhmash Canta and it looks enough like an AR in a quick film clip that I'm satisfied that I was wrong.

    ^What image are you referring to?

    I think "Canta" looks pretty close to the cyrillic spelling of "Saiga." And most all Saiga-12's don't look much like AR's, especially in CT, where if it had been restored to regular AK ergonomics, it would still need a thumbhole stock to be legal; since it takes detachable mags and has a threaded muzzle, OEM.

    Saiga = САЙГА=CANTA
