Who the hell brought an AR 15 into this? AR 15 wasn't used or found in the trunk. It was a .223 caliber bushmaster.
You'll have to review the 20 different stories from "credible sources" to find that out.
Some will say it was used.
Some will say it was found in the trunk, and wasn't used.
Don't forget about the guy in the woods behind the school. Never did get an explanation on that.
Still baffled. Where does it say that the .223 was not used? Initial conflicting media reports are completely understandable, no? And the ME said it was the long rifle.
Fishiness aside, do you not acknowledge that the author of the video has an obvious agenda? What's weird to me is that both you and Mountie have to have familiarity with the weapon and the round. In which case, how can you not see that every question the video asks - in regards to the weapon used - is easily explainable?
The biggest crap part of the video to me was the google earth images, hell, my house is two years old and not even on google earth
I don't believe the video. I'm also not blind, and know that there have been conflicting reports throughout this entire process.
The bushmaster was found in the trunk. How did it get back to the trunk if the shooter died in the school?
Directly following this report, another reporter said all of the children were shot with the Bushmaster rifle?
You do realize the government controls a TON of the media, right?

What I saw being removed from the trunk was obviously, not arguably, a shotgun. The media could easily interchange meanings, confuse the difference, especially in the race to get a story out. The author of the video alluded to "another video" of an assault rifle being removed from the trunk but did not provide it. The ME said he has able to reload rapidly because he taped two mags together. You can't do this with sidearms.
This is obviously an initial report from the scene. Ego, (to me) it falls within the timeline where information can be wildly inaccurate.
That wasn't the only report that the rifle was found in the car.
I would take this bit of info with a grain of salt until they find the two magazines taped together. A Medical examiner in no way form or fashion could be able to determine from the victim's bodies how fast the assailant was able to reload, especially if a high capacity magazine was in use

Damn you for making me look this up...All of those were initial reports. All of them. All of them reasonably subject to confusion and misinformation.
Instead of entertaining some youtube fruitcake's version of events, look at what we know...
Every news video that exists, which shows the police removing anything from the trunk, shows them removing a shotgun, not a Bushmaster.
Lt. Paul Vance of the CT State Police said in a press conference on December 16th:
“The weapon that was utilized most of the time during this horrific crime was identified as a Bushmaster AR-15 “assault type weapon.” It had high-capacity magazines.”
This matches what the coroner said right after the shooting. “All the wounds that I know of at this point were caused by the long weapon,”
So I ask again, what is more plausible? An astronomically huge, multi-state, multi-district, multi-agency, government conspiracy that the entirety of the media and thousands of ordinary citizens are on board with (and capable of keeping secret) OR the media in general doesn't know dick about firearms and in their haste to get the news out released some erroneous reports?
