It is clear that the perpetrator arrived at the school with a semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun, and 2 pistols. The perpetrator left the shotgun in the car and went into the school with the semi-auto rifle and 2 pistols. In future, do your research before posting your nonsense. Troofer.

The rifle he (did not) use, a .223-caliber Bushmaster M4 carbine, was legal under Connecticut’s “assault weapon” ban, which is similar to the federal law that expired in 2004. Both laws, in addition to listing specifically prohibited models, cover semiautomatic rifles that accept detachable magazines and have at least two out of five features: 1) a folding or telescoping stock, 2) a pistol grip, 3) a bayonet mount, 4) a grenade launcher, and 5) a flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor. The configuration of the rifle used by Lanza, which his mother legally purchased and possessed in Connecticut, evidently was not covered by that definition.

The video showing the police removing the rifle from the trunk clearly shows them clearing the weapon of ammo. It clearly ejected a shotgun shell.

the first reports put the rifle at the car and then once the feds got involved it was the primary weapon.

Yeah, he really said this:

Where did he get this idea? Jack Coleman over at NewsBusters thinks the claim originated from a Mother Jones article written in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, but Schultz doesn’t source the statement. The Mother Jones report states: “In the wake of the slaughters this summer at a Colorado movie theater and a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, we set out to track mass shootings in the United States over the last 30 years. We identified and analyzed...
