    First I heard early that morning that the killer shot everyone with 223 rounds, then that he used two 9mm handguns and the AR was not used but found in the trunk of the car he used to get there, then the weapon on the trunk became a Saiga shotgun, at all times the media MADE every effort, huge effort for that matter to include that in one way or another an AR rifle, an "assault rifle" was involved even if it was when they reported that it was in the car's trunk.

    Clearly, confusion and the media's guessing game is to be expected on the early stages but by now it is crystal clear that SOMEONE has an AGENDA here, the FACTS on ballistics ARE CLEAR by now to the forensics team that dealt with this and we are not getting anything resembling an accurate report on this from the media and who knows on what else, so good luck with that.

    The MSNBC report I believe was from the day of the shooting when things were still pretty fuzzy. It seems pretty clear (based upon the police reports) now that he used the AR and a glock 10mm and Sig 9mm in the actual attack.

    I think he almost exclusively used a Bushmaster .223, but haven't heard a definite of what he actually used vs carried.
    It's only true if it's on this forum where opinions are facts and facts are opinions

    I believe this also. I am pretty sure that the ME gave the only actual facts regarding that.
