how could a medical examiner make that kind of mistake? What other mistakes has he made??? Do you think this comes out now because of the sandy hook videos circulating..it's quite obvious that they pull the rifle from the trunk..do you think they are covering up their butts?

What about the 'backlash card'...it has the sign of aquarius on the background..Not sure if I buy into the cards...but hey, thought I would throw it out there...
edit on 16-1-2013 by Neopan100 because: more

It wasnt a rifle, like many here were saying on day 1, it is a shotgun.
Maybe he isnt making a mistake, he may be doing exactly what he is supposed to be.

I'm risking entry into a discussion which deals with a topic I usually have to avoid.

Why? Not because I have a stake in the outcome... but because I feel many people simply have to understand something which many (apparently) take for granted...

from the moment this event went "national" media reported on ANYTHING... every rumor, every half-assed speculation, every something or other overheard as officials walked by a media staffer.

THAT is why you never got a straight story... it's because the media's "journalists" now only report what has been sanctioned and accepted by officials as "what the people "should" know" rather than the facts.

Every long arm became a machine gun, every round became an armor piercing explosive tip flechette, the shooter became Hitler and Satan's love child, and anyone involved became the subject of controversy and suspicion. Every passer-by mentioned in police chatter became a potential child murderer...

Now, as the investigation takes place in earnest...the details form the original gore and fear-porn fest don't match. Well, what did you expect? Did you expect the so-called "news" to have any clue about what happened? Did you think they would keep there most eye-catching and inflammatory notions out of circulation?

This is why subsequent to the event the reporting all turned to the devastation and pain of the grieving. There was no more room for risk-free confabulation....

All I ask is that as we discuss this we take heed.... I can almost guarantee there is more we will never know than what we will be 'told' by anyone.

Wanna hear the boring version?

A troubled recluse adolescent boy, utterly broken by the prospect of being committed, snapped and punished his mother and anything she was associated with. He took his pain and spread it around in a bloody massacre.

The Media jumped at the tragedy, and the political cabal "made use" of the tragedy - as they always do.

No conspiracy, no "plan," just media and political opportunistic manipulation of public perception.....

I can't believe you got so many stars for this. Personally I think you should have stuck with staying out of this conversation as a Mod who wants to remain fair to the dead I suppose.

Here's the rub. It is now a month later and MSNBC says only 4 handguns on scene. Go back and watch the medical examiner of all the children, he say PRECISELY that they were all killed with a long weopon, and then confirms RIFLE. He also says that he is an expert in firearms.

I can understand media mistakes, but this is the official over the dead bodies. Wake up. You can't have the top official say rifle and then a month later say no rifle , those bullet are not confused by experts.

Correction. The video is a month old. Go to the page and look, it aired December 15th.

And it wasn't MSNBC, it was the Today Show.

Date noted. But yes, it is msnbc, look at the link address. Also, if you watch that report, they say that it is confirmed 4 handguns, nothing else. So we are still left with the fact that someone official is lying.

...Wow. What a disturbing quote; largely because it holds truth. It's the same argument for perpetuating the drug war; they say it's to protect the children, but the laws actually make things worse. Protecting children & protection from terrorism are the two biggest pretext for the curtailment of liberty.


Didnt he say he was for partial birth abortion at one time? So I cant figure this.

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.

Msnbc is the umbrella digital company that The Today Show online is under, along with about 6 others. The video was aired by The Today Show, not the news channel MSNBC.

My question is: Why do you believe the only video out there that states this, over everything else that has been said?

I'm sorry you feel I should not have posted. With respect, I hope I can understand and learn why?

Is it because of my "Boring version?" I assure you that I am not advocating that such a perspective is necessarily true... my point is that if there were a conspiracy behind the matter... this is what we had better expect as the end result... the gatekeepers write the history.... everything else could be theater...

No offense intended.

Well if some want to believe one big media outlet, why not another??

Posted to cnn.com on Wednesday, December 19th.....


Adam Lanza brought three weapons inside Sandy Hook Elementary school on December 14 and left a fourth in his car, police said. Those weapons were a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle and two handguns -- a Glock 10 mm and a Sig Sauer 9 mm.

In the car he left a shotgun, about which police have offered no details. Lanza used one of the handguns to take his own life, although police haven't said whether the gun was the Glock or the Sig Sauer.

That is part of the reason my brain screamed Dragunov, is the thumbhole stock with an additional cutout behind it, with the additional cutout being split vertically by a bar or something. I don't think I explained that very well, but if you look at the top example in the picture I posted you will see what I mean. That is the quintessential and distinctive buttstock of a Dragunov.

The day that video aired I downloaded it and have studied it literally dozens of times, and at this point I am 95% certain it is not an AR-15. I am leaning 85% towards it being a semi-auto Saiga magazine-fed shotgun. But the other 15% of me still has this nagging feeling that it is indeed a Dragunov or something similar. The problem is that a) the video is sucky quality; and b) there are so many variations of the Dragunov and it's knockoffs and similar rifles that it might take me forever and a half to find a picture of the *exact* model.

Nevertheless, I am going to try. I don't care how long it takes, I swear I *will* find a picture and 100% identify the weapon that they found in the trunk. It is bugging me too much.

All that doesn't change the fact that we now know for a fact that there was NO ASSULT WEAPONS USED.

This one little factoid should change the whole ball game.

Oh and here is a good little pointer.....

The president of the United States knew from the get-go that there were no assult weapons used.......I mean come on he is the president of the United States. He atleast knew by the time he signed his little orders.

But guess what, as we all know he signed them anyways. Come on people wake up the people that are saying that those orders have nothing with that school shooting are right.

That scumbag used them babys' bodies for a power grab.Obama is a dispicable scumbag.

What is your proof exactly? I hope you are not relying on that video that was aired in Dec. about 4 handguns. We have no idea if that is true.
