i’ve seen lots of coverage, especially yesterday. What I can’t find is information on what sort of rifle the nutjob used. One has to assume it was a “hunting” style rifle of the type that wouldn’t be covered by an assault weapons ban. If it were an AR style rifle it would be in the lead sentence of every story.
If one of his weapons came from 0bama’s illegal Fast and Furious gun-running, then the news media will bury the entire incident.
Please don’t let the left define the terms....with the term ‘hunting rifle’. Many ‘hunting rifles’ are semi-auto, fire a more high energy round than an AR15, and can accept large magazines.
If the ban the ‘assault weapons’ based on their semi auto capability, they have banned most rifles and pistols.
As to the OP, this felon was probably not allowed to own any gun ..so this episode demonstrates the futility of gun laws. Doesn’t fit the narrative quite right.
Police said Spengler was using a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle the same gun as used by the gunman in the Newtown massacre. He was also armed with a .38 revolver and a shotgun.
