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 The entire post has been retracted.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.
NBC has retracted the DEC 15 statement on the video. The weapon taken from the car was a shot gun, the shell casings collected were those from the rifle, and one of the kids interviewed at the scene, describes man carrying a rifle. The press made so many mistakes early on this is just another one. REDSTATE.COM ..."The primary weapon used in the attack was a “Bushmaster AR-15 assault-type weapon,” said Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance. http://www.redstate.com/2012/12/27/setting-the-record-straight-adam-lanza-did-use-the-bushmaster-a If you have a video link showing an AR-15 coming out of the parked car please provide it.
