    I know the investigation is evolving and this might be old news by now. I haven't checked my email in a few days and someone sent me a link to this video news update that said 4 HANDGUNS were the only weapons INSIDE the school, not the "assault rifle" described throughout the mainstream media.

    http://video.today.msnbc.msn.com/today/50208495#50208495

    So what are the latest official statements and are they trustworthy sources?

    I was looking at the video of the gun found in the car. NOT an AR

    Thread got shut down so speak fast if you have something to say.

    Well I saw the coroner speaking of rifle wounds, but was wondering what the latest trustworthy reports say. I mean the mainstream media never gets anything right the first time around, so what's the official record show regarding weapons found inside the school?

    The very first reports said handguns were used and there was an AR in his trunk, then it reversed. Wouldn't be surprised if it changed again since it seems like most reporters couldn't tell an AK from a mini-14.

    Lack of good Information does NOT make a conspiracy. This information has been revised numerous times.

    Reports for the first several days said handsguns were used in the attack and murders. Rifle was found in the trunk after the shooter was dead and the car searched. Then it got flip-flopped because an "assault rifle" is much easier to demonize in the mind of the ignorant public than a few pistols. Typical agenda-driven reporting.

    First reports were big on the whole "9mm" and "high capacity" thing. Then they decided to change it up and chew on the "assault weapon".

    Same thing with the second man in the woods captured by police. Reportedly, his first words to police were "I didn't do it".

    Regardless of whether the rifle was an AR or not, if it was in the trunk it wasn't used in the shootings. Dead guys don't go stow things in their automobile trunks.

    You'll notice there have been no details of any kind from official spokespersons or eyewitnesses? Even the child they interviewed (why subject a kid to this, ask a surviving adult if you simply must lead with a story like this) wasn't asked basic questions a thrid graded would think to ask. Misdirection, in my opinion.

    Yes, I am skeptical of the reporting on this tragedy, moreso than usual. The reports didn't begin vague and then clarify, they began relatively complete and changed entirely several days later.

    ETA in reply to Dr. Rob: I agree. But there were too many details, down to makes and models of handguns used, initially reported and then changed. There was no "We think he used a handgun". Instead we were told "He used two handguns, a Sig Sauer and a Glock". Then the pistols were tossed in favor of a rifle that was firmly in the trunk for two days prior to being named as the weapon used, in exchange for the two handguns. We knew by Friday evening that the firearms were registered to his mother. If the guns had all been recovered enough to run numbers through the Cn. registry, we'd have known about the rifle being in the school that evening also. But it remained in the trunk. For two days.

    The commentator in the video link of my OP, said "Federal" & "State" officials confirmed 4 handguns in the school and no AR15.

    To me "confirmed" means facts have been ascertained and confirmed from various angles or sources.

    I understand the media bias, but officers on the scene would know one from the other. Somebody has concrete info. I'm not saying conspiracy, but I would like to know the facts in the case.

    Please read the posting requirements stickied at the top of Activism.

    FYIs/Rants/etc. go in General unless you're pointing to someone else's plan supporting RKBA.

    BTW, that's a Dec. 15 dated video, the day after the shooting.
