    Sir, MSN is just releasing the information that is passed to them from the office of the pathological liar thru Press Secretary Carney who has proven to be very happy to willfully mislead the nation. What is very sad is the fact that our president will stoop to known out an out lies to promote his agenda and will continue to do so until he is called to task by the news outlets, which is doubtful.

    One problem with the news today is that there is just too much of it. You have all these various news organizations trying to scoop each other and get their story on the air first. Watching the continuing churn of reporters and announcers at CNN, Fox, and MSNBC gives you some idea of how competitive it is. In the heat of the moment, things get wrongly reported. Now that the dust has settled, the general consensus is that a .223 Bushmaster rifle was the primary weapon used at the school.

    Thanks to the internet, the original stories never die, they just keep getting rehashed.

    So, they weren't lies after all.

    Your are mistaken

    The shooter used the Bushmaster .223 to murder 20 children and six adults inside the school; he used a handgun to take his own life inside the school. No other weapons were used in this crime. This case remains under investigation.

    MATTHIES, I think a couple of main points that should be addressed rather than what object was used in the horrible crime is 1. They can't ban mental illness and 2. They can't ban stupidity on the parent's part in this case for letting have access to weapons meant for people who fire on all cylinders. The object is the easiest thing to go after and so to the ignorant in our society, all chips are placed on Mother Hen government to protect those who don't know how to fend for themselves or think for themselves and their freedoms. It's just the easy way out. Which by the way results in a false sense of security to those who chose to believe the lie. We all know that news outlets lie through their teeth but just don't let the frivolous stand in the way of the true fight.

    You actually expect MSLSD (Mark Levin's term, I can't take credit) to provide you with facts? They will sprinkle in a little truth just to keep the propaganda somewhat believable to the sheep, but you should expect 90%+ propaganda at this point.

    I was home the day that happen I remember the original reports saying that they found an AR15 in his trunk, After he was dead. So there is somekind of misreporting going on. I heard that with my own two ears.

    Wasn't there video of them finding the AR in the trunk of the car?

    EDIT: It must've been misreported, because that is WAY too big to be a .223 round that comes out of the gun.

    There was a video of them finding a shotgun in his trunk and a video of an officer taking an AR out of the trunk of his police car.

    And yes they did say that he used handguns and an AR was in his trunk, they also said that his brother was the one that did the shooting and killed himself and that his mother taught and was killed at the school.

    There was a lot of miss reporting happening that day and the days to follow.

    I for one do not believe that it was some grand conspiracy to accomplish something to destroy America....America is doing fine destroying itself through incompetence and mismanagement without the need of any conspirators.

    I believe the official police report
