I saw it on the TV news. Lower was missing, but part of an AR was shown as well as loaded metal mags and what looked like a black powder replica Navy six shooter. It was strange to say the least! Maybe someone will find a link to the video or stills as the segment did not last long...

How this so soon...did we ever get a presentation like that after Connecticut?

well, at least the cops did stop the guy before more people were injured.

I am hearing the suspect is Muslim. Starting shooting at random people. This is starting to get confusing.

Thanks Ellis. The actual gun is not there. The spare upper is. How odd is THAT?

I don't think they ever showed what was used in Sandy Hook. I don't think we know if the AR was the main gun there if it was used at all which is why I think they are still avoiding the subject. It seemed to go from "there was an AR in his car" to "he used a Bushmaster to slaughter inocent women and children and assault weapons must be banned and all guns registered."

Anyone paying attention to the illegal domestic intelligence gathering by the Feds? You Obama defenders still want a database of all legal guns and their law-abiding owners!?

I avoid the conspiracy portion of these events. I figure mental patients are unstable enough to just have some crappy timing all on their own. Like there is a good time for suiting up and shooting innocent people.

There is surveillance video of the shooter entering the library with very clear pictures of an AR. Doubt the old Remington Army revolver was the primary.

Funny how well that ban on pistol grips, detachable mags, bayonet lugs, and flash hiders works with psychos.

What about the freak in China that just killed 47 people by petrol bombing their bus?. Do they really think they can take away a nutters desire and means to kill by making more gun laws?.

Apparently this has happened several times in China lately where you can have no guns at all.

Not to mention the regularity of knife attacks on children. Seems to be a thing for crazy Chinese men in their society.

Some more observations on this tragedy...

-1300 rounds of .223 would be around 40lbs....was he carrying this?
-where is the rifle?
-why not show it?
-what do the witness testimonies like this from a student who's teacher had gone outside to see what was happening...."He told the class he had heard a gun unload. "He said it just sprayed and unloaded tons of rounds," Franco said." suggest about the weapon?

His name has been released, BTW.

John Zawahri fired about 75 rounds in the library before campus police killed him. He was admitted to a nut hospital "about two years ago". So, we have another murder and mayhem episode by a fruitcake who should not have been been allowed to own guns. The state of CA has an organization that confiscates the guns of newly convicted felons and nutcases: Did this guy fall through the crack?
