Anything that comes from the LameStreamMedia is automatically considered a possible complete fabrication. They have zero legitimacy now.

How many hands did he have? 2 How many weapons could he use at a time 2? How much could he carry of all this equipment.

It sounds scary if they can make it seem like he is a platoon of men.

At least I now know that if I ever snap and go on a shooting spree I’ll be reported as having a massive arsenal, unsafe storage, combat attire, thousands of rounds of ammunition, and scary looking knives, all within reach of children, with Gadsden flags that relay my anti-government sentiment. Oh, and a glacier melting, polar bear drowning, earth destroying pickup truck.

All of my rifles will be AR or AK type assault weapons that use oversized clips. All my handguns will be Glocks with oversized clips. My shotgun will fit into a glove compartment and accept 70 round magazines.

Ugh, the stupidity, it hurts.

I am not surrpised. This is an effort by the old msm to discredit legit gun owners.

This is all well and good for a media hit piece full of mischaracterizations and suppositions they can’t possibly know are true since the killer is dead.

Why are they (yeah, ‘they’), the media, the police, the hand wringers et al clamoring for a publication of the toxicology report? What kind of meds did his schools and doctors have him on? Ritalin? something stronger?

I haven’t seen one word on this...just a bunch of crap about huge caches, hundreds of rounds and all that BS

A toxicology report does not fit the narrative.

This article is slow on the uptake. I heard on the radio at lunch that it was "As much as 1000 rounds".

100's of rounds? Terrifying. That might be 3, even 4 boxes. Gungrabbing agenda, indeed.

You should put a polar bear in the back of the pickup.

THAT would be cool.

hundreds of rounds is not a large cache. hundreds of rounds is ‘critically low on ammo’.

gun-gun no workee no boom boom.

Newtown School Gunman Had Large Weapons Cache: Court Papers

Since the weapons belonged to his mother, he had NONE. Only access to them, without permission, after committing a murder.

Despicable. ABC news in NY says he had “Guns, a gun safe, a bayonet, and a sword and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.” Also emphasized that he shot 155 rounds from the time he arrived, as if to say that could never be done without 30 round magazines.
