Story Retraction: Authorities Say Newtown Shooter Did Not Use Assault Weapon

while a .38 revolver usually has only 5 or 6 bullets so it requires frequent reloading for the type of killing he was doing - the semi-auto 9mm my husband has takes considerably more bullets so if you had 4 of these or simply more magazines already loaded, you would have as much killing power as the AR. It is less important the look of the weapon than the preparation of the shooter.

Earlier today I posted an NBC News report about the type of weapons Adam Lanza used during his Sandy Hook rampage. That report was from December 15 and contained false information. According to the Newtown coroner, Lanza used a semi-automatic AR-15, not four handguns as the report said. The entire post has been retracted. I apologize for the error.
