This story has been making its way around the web for a day now.
This is not true, and a result of rumors and bad reporting. This event never happened.

... It was a gun free zone. How could it have happened?

Maybe another false flag so the government has more ammo to take our guns ....

I think it was fairly obvious in my post I was talking about the media not helping matters in our case. Law abiding firearms owners.

I understand the point Mosin was making.

Unfortunately it did happen, and the shooter reportedly used an AR-15. The dreaded, misnamed 'assault rifle,' of course. In the quote below notice how, while technically accurate, the writer very neatly ties the AR-15 to the M-16…."Both rifles fire the same high-powered cartridge."

Quoted from the 'Daily Mail:'

"...Some early unconfirmed reports indicated the gunman was carrying an AR-15 rifle, a semiautomatic, civilian version of the fully automatic, military M-16. Both rifles fire the same high-powered cartridge.
The floor was littered with empty shell casings.
An unconfirmed report indicated that that the rifle may have jammed at some point and that police found a full magazine on the floor…."

Fox News ran a live report last night and the local LEOs did not identify the weapon used, but the local news reporters claimed that it was an AR-15, was the weapon actually identified?

A caviat to Sonic82's question is "Why did he do it?"

An eye witness spoke with CNN and was terrified of the firearm, called it a "Call of Duty type rifle" and the suspect was wearing a Friday the 13th style hockey mask.

"Call of Duty type rifle" will be the new buzzword of this tragic event, further demonizing the AR. Just watch
