What Gun Did The Sandy Hook Shooter Use

I don't know about you guys, but this article really pissed me off. A good amount of ignorance in it. Author even bothered to say "This is not a gun control advocacy article, it's just about possible rifles. No one here is advocating gun control". Yeah, like that is believable. And sorry if this is a dupe guys.

Holy cow that is full of ignorance and contradiction.

That's one thing that I've been hearing all day, that this was a double handgun shooting.

Update: The bushmaster rifle was found in the trunk of the shooter's car. The Sig Sauer and Glock pistols were the only weapons used in the shooting, according to CBS.

According to MSNBC, it was an evil black automatic firearm that corrupted the soul of everyone that touched it.

So fucking glad that I'm spending 8 hours on a plane tomorrow and will have 8 hours away from internet and news. Even happier I won't have to spend the next week listening to German civilians talk about how fucked up America is (I already caught a dose of that getting some coffee across the street a few hours ago).

Considering he's 20, the chances of him owning the two handguns are damn small. Not sure if they can be given as gifts or some shit to people under 21.

I'm thinking of writing this guy an email, how does this sound:

Geoffrey,

I feel that your article on the weapons used at the tragic Sandy Hook shooting is misleading and may have confused the facts regarding the firearms used and firearm ownership in general.

In your first paragraph, you mention that "The bushmaster rifle was found in the trunk of the shooter's car. The Sig Sauer and Glock pistols were the only weapons used in the shooting, according to CBS." However, you later go on to speculate on what type of Sig Sauer "assault style rifle" may have been used. I think this suggests that assault rifles were used in the actual shooting, and while the shooter may have intended to use the Bushmaster rifle it does not sound like this was the case at all.

In your speculation regarding firearm purchases, you write: "...but a simple trip across the border into Pennsylvania can secure weapons illegal in both those aforementioned states, or one can just buy weapons on the web." While two neighboring states may have vastly different laws regarding magazine capacity and firearm sales, there is no such thing as a "simple" drive across borders to purchase them. Per Federal Law, all firearm purchases from a state other than that of the buyer's residency must be done through a Federally licensed dealer [18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and 922(b)(3)], and the firearm would have to be shipped directly to an FFL dealer in the state of purchase who would then verify the eligibility of the buyer.
The same follows to purchases over the internet. I feel that your article, among many other news and blog articles recently, imply that internet sales of firearms work the same way as a purchase from Amazon.com! This is simply not the case! The same requirement for a Federally licensed dealer to perform a background check is required for all internet sales, and an FFL licensed dealer MUST be utilized to receive a firearm shipped from another state.
Even if a Connecticut resident were to try to purchase illegal firearms in Pennsylvania from a private owner, that owner is bound by state law to ensure that he or she is only selling to residents of that state in accordance with the laws of both states.

As a journalist, please ensure that you represent facts regarding your story and especially Federal law accurately, and without personal speculation or assumption. Many people read your articles, and incomplete or incorrect information can negatively impact your readers.

Respectfully,
Shane Bergeron

He only used the glock and sig.

So basically these particular firearms would not have been involved if his mother was responsible and locked them up. We need to push this issue when people say "ban guns!".
