A 15-year-old was arrested Sunday for killing a family just outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico Saturday evening using the weapon that's dominated much of the gun control conversation -- the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.
An unidentified 15-year-old was arrested and charged for killing all five people. Several weapons were found inside the house, including a military style assault rifle.

An unidentified 15yo, who they identify IN THE NEXT PARAGRAPH!?
This does NOT pass the smell test!
If only he had used a hunting rifle those people would be alive today. /s
Cool your jets. The police haven't identified the shooter yet, but they released the age of teh shooter, but the local media has apparently talked to neighbors, who would know the names involved.
The two are not mutually exclusive.
Gee, I think a 15 year old with an AR-15 would’ve been stopped if only we had more gun laws. Clearly, he would’ve obeyed the law. /s
Stupid ass liberals.
Does anyone else think all of these “incidents” are a little, too convenient for Obama? Similar to the Deepwater Horizon explosion?
Yes, the Left is ecstatic over this.
After all, the boy was homeschooled, in a Christian home, and he killed his family with an AR-15.
A trifecta for the Left.
OK, weapon used is (allegedly) an AR15 ... Which SSRI was this teen using?
I don’t doubt that the story is true.. reporting of it is likely shoddy and incomplete.
Regardless of politics, anyone who owns guns should realize, especially with adolescents and teenagers that they are ruled by hormones, their peers, and often times just a screwed up outlook that is influenced by many factors: homelife, government schools, other teenagers, possible drugs, dopers and dealers too.
I have an extensive collection of guns. Each and every one of them is locked up (the gunsafes are double-locked) where my grown children can’t get them, nor my grandchildren, if I am not here.
I don’t care how reasonable or reliable they seem - they do not have open access. My wife knows how to find the keys/combinations, etc., but she’d have to get into my wallet to do that.
Seems like the same crime could have been done with a New York legal 7 shot clip handgun.
If the kid had known how much the rifle, ammo, and magazines were worth on the market today he probably would have just sold the stuff.
This would not have happened if the only firearm the kid could get a hold of was a 30-30 Winchester rifle, like the one Harry Tracy used to kill 11 policemen back in 1902!
Yes, if only they had been shot with a .30-06 bolt action, or maybe a .45-70 lever gun, everything would have been OK. They’d all still be dead as a Democrat’s soul, but at least the leftists would feel alright about it because it wasn’t a scary “military style” rifle. As I always ask, how many million AR-15 or other so-called “assault rifles” were NOT used in crimes today? Crickets from the left.
It's time for some stringent laws regarding 15 year old teens. /s
Arrest him, charge him, try him, execute him.
Hell yes, right on ‘target’ for the left’s agenda.
Or if it is, it’s a sick one.
If only the “low info” voter would read your stuff...
I didn’t see that in the article. Do you see that somewhere?
Read that part last night, up through finding Hope in the snow. You’re givin’ me bad dreams, McGee. BTW, how the hell did you forecast the first mixed-race president?
I am interested in only one thing here;
Where did this kid obtain this alleged AR-15? Regardless of what type of firearm it was, where did he get it? Stolen? Purchased illegally? This has to have been determined by the police already. Or will be soon. I'll await that info. But if it does not fit the MSM's current narrative concerning firearms, I won't expect to hear squat.
The ABC radio news so totally in the tank for anti-Second Amendment forces, reported this on the hour as “Killed his entire family with an ASSAULT” weapon.
It sure was...he used it in an assault.
Otherwise it was just resting in place or used for hunting, target shooting etc.
Any other weapon he would’ve used to kill them would also be an “ASSAULT weapon”.
Assault baseball bats, knives, ropes (strangling), chloroform (rendering unconscious), pillows (smothering), etc etc etc.....
Chainsaws? Running over with vehicles? Name it, the list is endless.
Explosive devices??? Yep...
No, actually, the media talked to firemen, who knew the family because the father was a chaplain at the prison and also offered counselling to firemen.
The firemen have been very willing to talk to the media.
Eric Griego, the brother of one of the victims (the father) and uncle of the perp, is an uber-liberal Democrat in the New Mexico legislature with ties to the Occupoopers.
How this is used will be telling.
Count the carnage that has occurred on his watch.
Accused killer Nehemiah Griego, 15, reportedly wrote on a social media site tha he ‘might be shy but Ill OPEN UP once you get to know me.’
My point stands - the name of the 15 year-old did not come from ‘official’ spokesmen.

The father was the volunteer chaplain at the nearby prison and also offered counseling to the local firemen. Maybe he had a lot of weapons for self-defense in case his counsel was not well accepted. Who knows? Well, I guess the local authorities know, but they aren’t saying, not until after the inauguration anyway.
7 Shot to Death in New Mexico; After Search, Suspect Is in Custody
Officials released no details about the arrest of Mr. Abeyta, 29 years old, who was described as a skilled hunter by neighbors and acquaintances in a sparsely populated neighborhood near Chimayo, about 100 miles north of Albuquerque.
The woman across the road described her neighbor's actions with his scoped hunting rifle as justified.
"She was leaving him," she explained to us.
January 28, 1991. Chimayo, which wouldn't let Redford film Milagro
"Ain' no big deal"
We continue to urge Senator Grassley to pursue this president and his attorney general on Fast and Furious, and Benghazi--
--eschewing all further deconstruction of our Second Amendment.
. The boy said around midnight, he got a .22 caliber rifle from his parent's closet and shot his mother in the head while his younger brother slept next to her, according to police.
When the boy woke up, Griego said he shot him after delivering the news their mother was dead, police said.
The 15-year-old said he lost his sense of conscience and went to the bedroom his two younger sisters shared. There, he told investigators he shot his two younger sisters, as they laid crying in bed with the same rifle he used to kill his mom and brother.
The boy then said he got the AR-15 rifle from the closet and waited for his father to get home.
According to Griego, he hid and waited until his dad walked through the door around 5 a.m., and shot him in the back multiple times with the rifle.
Why are you posting a story about a killing in New Mexico 22 years ago? Are you deliberately trying to confuse people?
So what, the firemen are more reliable than the neighbors and the name of the shooter and the relationship to the victims has been out since last night.
Please reference comment 1 as to why I am raising this.
Sgt Alvin York used a M1917 Enfield (6 round magazine) and a M1911 Colt .45 pistol (7 round magazine).
“He received the Medal of Honor for leading an attack on a German machine gun nest, taking 32 machine guns, killing 28 German soldiers and capturing 132 others.”
He could have done the same with a single shot shotgun.
They ought to pass a law forbidding that.
How many ATF vehicles were seen leaving the area in a hurry?
Update, the shooter was the son of the 2 dead adults and brother of the 3 dead children. Why a family member would wipe out his own family is beyond my understanding. The guns are likely the fathers. The family had no prior contacts with the local police, the parents had jobs & went to church.
****Killed his entire family with an ASSAULT weapon.*****
Back in the mid 1990s our local TV news reported on a man arrested with “AN AS-S-S-AULT RIFLE!”
He may have commited a “crime with the AS-S-S-S-AULT RIFLE!”
The firearm “They found was an AS-S-S-S-AULT RIFLE!”
Finally they showed the “AS-S-S-AULT RIFLE!”
It was a WWII vintage M1 carbine.
I have exactly three weapons and all are loaded with chambered rounds protected only by the safety switch that is on all guns I have ever owned.
I have no intention of being a victim with a gun locked safely away in a gun safe.
“It’s for the children...”
In 5, 4, 3...
“I dont care how reasonable or reliable they seem - they do not have open access. My wife knows how to find the keys/combinations, etc., but shed have to get into my wallet to do that.”
And if you are not home? Someone breaks into your house when your wife is home alone and she can’t defend herself because you have your guns locked up and the key to the safe is with you? Love your wife much?
You left out the American flag hanging in the house indicates patriotic and the kid wears cammo and is clean cut so there's your wingnut evil right wing conservative.
Anyone know what the NM law says about the cut off age for trying him as an adult? Since he's only 15, he might only get sent to juvenile detention until he's 18 and is set free.
***Are you deliberately trying to confuse people?***
I remember a story of two deputies killed in a jail break in Lincoln. The perp was later killed in Ft Sumner. It was claimed he had killed 21 men, not counting Indians and Mexicans.
I also have several files of other killers in the state.
At least he won’t go through life labeled a terrorist for using a bubble gun.
What an upside down world.
Do you have children? I don’t know what three guns you have but if one is say, a Glock, that little trigger safety ain’t much between a kid’s finger and tragedy.
I didn’t say I couldn’t get to what I needed, I said they were locked up. The GunVault by my bed is opened on three fingers.. loaded 1911 ready to go. I’ve got a lot more than 3 guns...there is no need, yet, to have them all ready to go SWAT on somebody..
Seems to be a bunch of rosy-eyed Polyanna’s here today - just keep’em all fully loaded and chambered and everything’s gonna be okay........the wife has her own gun.
Why would anyone want dozens of guns all fully loaded and ready to use?
