So apparently everyone pointing out that the firearm found in the trunk was not a rifle, but a shotgun, was correct.
www.digitaljournal.com...

Remember this video?



I recall quite a few members here stating exactly this.
The "media" sure did a great job of muddling this all up.

The article(and title of the video) make a great point about how they badly mishandled that incident. It does look like the officer handling the weapon is wearing gloves, at least.

My apologies, it looks like this was covered pretty well in another thread.

The media has a funny sort of way of reporting before they have all the facts. I actually had to go back and watch the video a few times so I knew I wasnt seeing things.

Media needs to focus more on getting a story right rather than trying to be the first to air a story, thats how mistakes are made.

Im aware of that. The confusion was with the media reporting that it was a .223 Bushmaster rifle. I knew it was a shotgun which is why I had to watch the video a few times to make sure I was right.
