Friend pointed out GUN DISCREPANCIES
Got up this morning and read the news as usual, the first story I got to was how a NY cardinal compared a slain teacher in the Sandy Hook shooting to jesus. She laid her life down for her children just as jesus did for his followers. Then in the fourth paragraph down it discussed the shooting and it said
"Catherine was among the 20 students and six teachers killed when Adam Lanza, armed with a military-style assault rifle, broke into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on Dec. 14 and opened fire. Lanza killed his mother at her home before the attack and committed suicide at the school as police closed in."

As I read this it just did not sound right to me, this report stated that he used a Military-style assault rifle in the school shooting. This does not go along with reports from the day of the shooting or even the day after the shooting. In this report I went and looked up and remember reading when it came out this is what it said.
"Three weapons were found — a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, inside the school, and a .223-caliber rifle in the back of a car. " Here is the URL...Gunman kills mom, 26 others in school shooting spree
I read other reports on the day of the shooting and also the morning after the shooting that talked about Lanza using A Glock and a Sig for the shooting, both 9mm with high cap mags but no mention of the AR-15 other then it being in the car. All the reports you read now talk about the killings being done with the AR-15 and how we need to ban this Assault rifle. The AR-15 semi automatic rifle is no different the a typical semi auto 223 rifle used in varmint hunting, other then platform it is built on. An assault rifle by definition is "An assault rifle is a select-fire (either fully automatic or burst capable) rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine." Here is the full definition for you to read. Assault rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
We are being lied to here people, the news stories are changing every time you read them and the gun bans are being more and more considered. Yes I am horrified by the killings. But a gun ban is not the answer to this or any other killing. Stricter rules in buying over the internet and at gun stores need to be enacted. Mental health needs to be stepped up. You will not stop killing by taking guns away from the Law abiding people of this country that enjoy the shooting sports and or hunting or both.
The main thing that got me to thinking this morning is. Well, this is not surprising to me. We are being lied to by the government and the media. We are being denied our second amendment rights to have and to bear arms. If we are going to look at this then we had better look at all the other amendments. Hell, look at the video games kids play. Nothing but out and out killing. What is going to happen to our already failing economy when the arms bans begin? People will loose jobs, factories will move out of the country to produce there products taking more jobs away. Small Mom and Pop stores will fail and families will lose there livelihood. People that depend on getting the deer and wild game yearly for food to supplement there budget could lose that right. Once it starts it never ends...
