This is interesting.  Freaking media and politicians.

Can you hear the media now screaming,if he could do this much killing & damage with a few hand guns think about the amount of damage & killing he could do with an assult rifle.Get rid of the hand guns & assult rifles.
 
Now lets see if anything is mentioned about how that monster couldn't get a rifle right away because some store followed the law & insisted on a waiting period?

Many of the news media that I have dealt with in the past have appeared to be biased and have written their stories before assembling the facts (fact avoidant). Unfortuately, once their stories have been put out there and read by folks who want to hear what they like, retractions or corrections are difficult or impossible. This includes various publications that elitists or intellectuals like.
I guess a rush to judgement would be the best term.
The politics of personal destruction is another example. Publishing the names of those who have carry permits is another (stigmatization).
 
As a gun owner be of "good witness".

If you remember the Virginia Tech shooting, the shooter only used 2 handguns, and he killed more more people, and the victims were adults.

I believe this rumor is false. The AR 15 was used as well as handguns. The ME emphatically stated that the killings occurred with the AR. What was found in the vehicle was a shotgun.

All the initial early reports said the "assault rifle" was found in the vehicle.  None of the witness "interviews" I saw early on said anything about an "assault rifle".  Only later... doesn't mean he didn't use it, only that "reporting" is not really REPORTING, it's just making stuff up from moment to moment... the only way to KNOW what happened is to BE THERE.
 
One report I heard also said that the ME was very "anti-gun"...  once again, doesn't mean much other than RC's favorite "anecdotal evidence"...

Having personal experience with the media at crime scenes and other events,I can tell you that the facts have nothing to do with the story which must be sensational.

Well from the video shot from a news heli showing police inspecting a long gun in the trunk of the vehicle he drove to the school. You can plainly see that the long gun they where inspecting in the trunk was a shotgun.

What ever happened to the 2 men with long guns that were chased and caught in the woods, filmed by the helicopter? Also mentioned in the audio tape of the police radios. To much discrepancy in all the reports. Local police is so much different than the FBI reports which keep changing. For them it's a good thing that this will never go to court to show the lies being told.
