    Here are some excerpts taken from this article:
    http://news.yahoo.com/gunman-killed-firemen-bushmaster-left-note-173229149--abc-news-topstories.html

    "As firefighters arrived on the scene after a 5:30 a.m. 911 call on the morning of Christmas Eve, Spengler opened fire on them with the Bushmaster, the same semi-automatic, military-style weapon used in the Dec. 14 rampage killing of 20 children in Newtown, Conn."

    Adam Lanza used a Sig Sauer and a Glock, the "assault weapon" was found in his car. There is actually a video of a police officer retrieving the firearm from his trunk, and it looks like a Hi-Point carbine.

    "Armed with a Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver, a Mossman 12-gauge shotgun, and the Bushmaster, Spengler killed two firefighters, and injured two more as well as an off-duty police officer at the scene. "

    A MOSSMAN?! What the hell is a mossman?!


    Go home media, you're drunk!

    It is not that important. It would be like saying that the victim was run over by a red car, when the car was blue. What is important is these kinds of shooting keep rubbing salt in the wounds of the anti-gun folk.

    Sure seems important when the media says "bushmaster same as the dec 14 shooting". Some how that doesn't sound like red car, white car to me. Besides Chainfire, would it be too much to ask from a NEWS SOURCE to get their facts right ? I know msm is one of your beloved liberal institutions.

    It IS important because they're using their position to influence the public with a clear agenda.

    If we are going to get particular about brand names then it should be noted that the video OP referenced did not show a Hi-Point carbine being retrieved from the trunk.

    Chain I respectfully disagree. There was a lot more wrong with that article than mossman.

    The mossman sounds like a gun that would be in Charlie Daniel's Wooley Swamp song.

    The point of that article is, and you all should jump on. Is that this guy could not legally possess firearms, and the weapon he supposedly used, is not allowed in NY.
    Which furthers the point that gun control does not work.

    The mindless press are far from stupid. The facts would end the debate once and forever but their passion for supreme control of the masses prevents that truth from being uttered and even if it is, its coated in partisan rhetoric. They are vague because the facts would disprove their emotional responses to these tragedies. Dont forget, thats how the press makes their money, covering tragedies and misery, 24 minutes to pain and agony and a 1.2 minute Fluffy Puppy piece at the end!

    These are the same folks that think 911, Health, Life, and flood insurance will protect their family from bad occurrences and they still believe in the Tooth Fairy!

    Today on the radio they were talking about the "gun show loophole" and something I had never heard before, apparently there were loopholes the clinton ban as well and the Columbine shooters apparently used it. The lack of research that the media puts into these stories is astonishing.
