I believe this has to be a deeper conspiracy to immediately GO AFTER ALL GUNS including HANDGUNS, which would leave American citizens stripped of their constitutional right to bear arms. Imagine the domino effect if that type of legislation gets approved!!

The media are saying handgun so when they ban extended magazine for 'assault type weapons' it will flow to handguns and they will seem the same to the masses of asses who will follow this over the cliff. An HK with a 20 round mag is what I want, not 6-8 shots. That is why I have the HK. It is a handgun not an assault pistol but I guarantee it will be not to soon when we start to hear that.
However, it was a Bushmaster he used. One of the weapons at least. I can confirm that for you from a discussion with someone who was onsite as well as their husband. He has 100's of rounds and only killed himself when LEO's showed up. He shot in the front door, buzzed himself in and started shooting.
Also, you are right that he did not use an assault rifle. That term should be reserved for military grade/selector switch full auto weapons. A M4 Bushmaster is simply a rifle made to look like an assault rifle.edit on 23-12-2012 by esdad71 because: (no reason given)edit on 23-12-2012 by esdad71 because: (no reason given)

Just because a reporter got something wrong or someone is misquoted does not a conspiracy make. The actual crime had barely taken place and people think all the facts are in and that's that. There's no cover-up. You guys just invent one so you can play detective. Knock yourselves out but this is why actual conspiracies get laughed at.
The two pistols were found inside the school and a .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle was found in the back of his mother's car in the parking lot.
Three weapons were recovered from the school on Friday: [color=#BFFF00]a semi-automatic .223 caliber rifle made by Bushmaster found in a car in the school parking lot, and two pistols made by Glock and a Sig Sauer found with suspected gunman Adam Lanza's body, a law enforcement source said previously.
All three law enforcement officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record about the unfolding investigation.
The gunman drove to the school in his mother's car, the second official said. Three guns were found — a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, inside the school, [color=#BFFF00]and a .223-caliber rifle in the back of a car.
Lanza was found dead inside the school of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Two semi-automatic handguns were found near his body and [color=#BFFF00]a .223 assault rifle was found in a car. Those weapons were bought and registered in Nancy Lanza's name. The official didn't specify the types of additional weapons found at the home.
Orr reports that authorities found two guns on the gunman's body, a Glock 9 mm pistol and a Sig Sauer pistol. [color=#BFFF00]A Bushmaster assault rifle was found in the vehicle, Orr reports.
Meanwhile, a law enforcement official says authorities found more guns inside the school than the initial two that had been reported. The official would not say what type of guns were found but says all the weapons were being traced by state and federal authorities. The official was not authorized to speak to reporters about the investigation and spoke only on condition of anonymity.
Investigators were trying to learn more about the gunman, Adam Lanza, and questioned his older brother, who is not believed to have been involved in the rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary.
Lanza shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, drove to the school in her car with at least three guns, [color=#BFBF00]including a high-powered rifle that he apparently left in the back of the vehicle, and shot up two classrooms around 9:30 a.m. Friday, law enforcement officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Yes in some states WITH a FFL you can own a full auto weapon. Civilians w/o an FFL can not own them. I have done my research, my grandfather used to hold an FFL and owned a gunshop for many years.
