I still have doubts, here is why.
* I am still thinking Adam and Nacy are still the victims. Since he is living with his mom, mom should have known if he is accumulating all these ammunitions for the guns.(Unless she stockpiled them). Even then, my doubt is that someone who knew this information used this info wisely.
* His death suspicious too, why did he stop? he had several other weapons at his disposal if one is jammed. The murder suicide is a convenient name for a scapegoat.

So much of this does not add up to me, the more they spin their "official story", the more holes I see. I could go into detail, but I am sure everyone here can see all the flaws in their story for themselves.
the double speak doesn't end there. It pervades all of society, right is wrong, wrong is right...

I know a little something about firearms. And something has been bothering me since I first saw the video of the long gun being taken from the trunk of the car.
I understand it could be an AR-15. There are accessory kits available which will allow an AR to be charged from the side rather than the stock rear charging handle. So it is possible. BUT, the cartridge which is ejected from the weapon in question looks far too large to be a .223/5.56 round. Maybe possibly .308/7.62 round, that would be a closer match in size to the cartridge seen on the video, and there are certainly ARs which are chambered for that round.
It could also be a shotgun. There are certainly shotguns which look similar to the blurry (even in 1080HD) weapon taken from the car. And the size of the cartridge is closer to a shotgun shell than to an AR caliber. From the length of the shell, if it is a shotgun shell, I would guess it is a .410 gauge.
What has been bothering me though, is when I first saw the weapon, my first estimation of what it was was neither of the above possibilities. Not an AR, not a shotgun... I actually thought it was this:
Behold, the Dragunov rifle.
I have been waiting for someone on one of these scores of threads about the trunk weapon, to bring up the Dragunov rifle. But nobody has. So am I crazy? Am I the only one who sees the possibility?
It gets even more interesting when you start to speculate about a true, military *sniper rifle* being found at the scene...
Please share your thoughts with me.

Thanks. I don't know if you've seen my other thread where I break down the weapons in a different way - www.abovetopsecret.com...
If handguns only had been used he would have been required change clips something on the order of 20 times! I have my doubts about that.
Thing is they said that Lanza's mother only owned 1 Bushmaster rifle and 2 pistols along with an Enfield rifle and a Marlin .22. Adam Lanza didn't buy any - they denied him, where did they come from?edit on 14-1-2013 by Asktheanimals because: (no reason given)
