The news feed is legit. Pete Williams is a DC correspondent. Don't know how old it is tho.

The coroner said the rifle was used in the killings. Can a coroner tell the difference between a 223 & 9mm pistol wound?

It's not a shotgun. You can see the guy pulling the side charging handle at the start and I've never seen a shotgun with a side charging handle.

Also personally I highly doubt that it is a AR-15. I've never seen a AR-15 that looked like this. Also look at how the guy is holding the gun. If it was an AR he wouldn't be holding it this way.

He wouldn't be trying to clear the gun from the side either. Got ak all over it. Or a dragunov.

Old Browning auto shotguns were sidekocking..... don't look like ar15, but does appear to be separate butt/pistol grip. No idea.

Question of the day...... is it an ar15/m16 ?

Sidekocker on an ar15 is a rare creature indeed... but they do exist.

hard to tell...horrible video but most AR15s have a T handle behind the chamber, not a charging handle on the right side. Highly doubt it's an actual M16

I'm just tossing out another long gun with a side operating handle; M1A has that type of action, and the round that came out looks rather large although that too can be a trick of the cam, and after all, you can get .458 ARs

Get an M1 rifle. No roller bearing to break, either

Yeah, that one was 600 versus 1600 for an M1A...'course, my M1 wasn't that pretty when I got it, but elbow grease and patience cost nothing

The cool thing is knowing without a doubt that I'm never wearing that rifle out. It survived a war

There are several semi-auto shotguns with side charging handles

What drives me nuts is that every news article I read says this is a Bushmaster. That's pretty specific.

Just to clear up the last page of confusion. The killer had six guns in total with him. The Bushmaster and 2 pistols were on him in the school. Three others were in the car out front.

On another side note, it's terrible that you guns guys are getting the shaft. I'm not a gun guy,I've never ever shot one, but guns did NOT cause the massacre. A crazy 20 year old asshole did. The guy's father who owns the company that makes the Bushmaster lives in Newtown. I wouldn't be suprised if they run him out of town. There was nothing at all besides holding class in a prison that could have prevented that. The people on the news are idiots. I'd like to get a gun and shoot out my tv's.


I hope that I was able to clear they gun in the trunk deal up. Good luck getting everything you want without getting bent over and hopefully all the "take guns away" nuts don't bother you to much.

A shotgun is so different from a rifle that if it was a shotgun everyone there would have known the difference but everyone is saying it is some short of rifle.
