First reports on any event are usually wrong. People are confused, even as to which event people are talking about. I've heard people pop up with stuff that happened weeks or months before because they did not know what others were talking about had even happened. Then some speculate, and are totally wrong.

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 The entire post has been retracted.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.
