Weight per 100 rounds (lbs): 2.63 for 9mm ammo so lets say I carry then 300 rounds in clips ready to rock and roll which I probably wouldn't even take that much..
so that is what, 15lbs at most with the clips.. My laptop weights about 8lbs and I hardly notice it in a messenger bag so I could easily carry another 8lbs or so in a messenger bag...
Now since he would be taking it into a school where obviously no one is armed, none of the kids would try to attack you even if they did you can shoot them as they come up to you and same with any teachers which there wouldn't be that many..
So changing mags isn't like ur getting shot at while ur trying to change, you can carry enough ammo to kill at least 200 people if you are a bad shot even 150 if you really suck at shooting..
so feel free to ban assault rifiles but dont do it under the guise of safety or make up stories that they were used to kill kids becuase I would never bring one I would stick with my 9mm which is easy to buy anywhere and so are clips and ammo and it shoots as fast as I can pull the trigger and I can swap mags faster then you can say dont shoot...

There is nothing easy about carrying 40 handgun magazines around with you. The scrawny little punk that supposedly did this couldn't carry around that kind of weight and function efficiently. Not to mention, the countless hours of repetitious training required to be proficient enough to reload that fast, acquire targets, etc.
As far as the "assault" rifle being used or not... I don't know what to believe anymore, and to be honest I don't really care and it doesn't really matter. The propaganda machine will tell the story they want to tell, regardless of the holes or contradictions. If "someone else" did this and used Lanza as the patsy, they were pretty sloppy to leave a bunch of spent brass laying around and no matching weapon.

Perhaps there is but we don't know about it yet and neither does there chief medical examiner who states that all deaths were caused by "long gun" rounds.

Is there even evidence that the handguns were used except for the fatal shot (apparently "self inflicted") on Adam Lanza? As more contradictory evidence mounts the more it appears that Lanza could have been used as a patsy.

Some of you people are really daft. It does not take training to shoot something from 10, 20, or even 30ft away. Those who think that are absolutely clueless about firearms.
The only question that needs to be asked is why some of you feel the need to turn this tragedy into a false flag, conspiracy, or whatever it is you are trying to prove.
This was a horrific tragedy carried out by a screwed up 20 something year old. I just hope the families of the victims never see the crap you are pushing. News reporters are not infallible they never have been. I find the efforts of those who are trying to make this a conspiracy disgusting those of you doing this should be ashamed of yourselves.
