Not that I’ve found. However, this is the type of announcement I don’t see CNN putting out if they had anyway to deny it.
Arthur Daniels does not look white to me.
Guess he took Joe Biden’s advice to heart.
How could they have gotten that fact wrong for an ENTIRE DAY?
No offense intended, but you are an UnAmerican loon!
3:22 Minutes Description under the video
Navy Yard shooter was NOT armed with AR15, according to FBI
Laughner passed the FBI background check.
Holmes the Batman movie shooter passed the FBI and CBI background check.
The Sandy Hook shooter shot his mom and stole her guns.
Your beloved background checks do not seem to be "keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and crazies" worth a damn. So go pimp gun control at DU or Kos.
MSNBC must be devistated.
Also weapons info in this piece. CNN doesn’t have a stand alone re: no AR-15 and others are continuing to push it. Nothing on the FBI site either.
Someone should let ‘sports writer turned expert in all things’ Mike Lupica know... he’s going full bore:
I don’t believe anything that comes out of Obama’s FBI.
Oh, yeah...what about Benghazi?
CNN is now inventing guns on air. Great .
Mike looks a little light in the loafers to me.
Yes, and the fact that he wasn’t white as well.
Doesn’t matter, whatever firearm was used, that is the firearm that the gun grabbers are gonna place in their crosshairs and try to pass unconstitutional, basic right violating laws against in order to save the world for the children.
In this case, it looks like we are gonna have calls for shotgun and pistol control from statist Democrats with complacent, and in some cases complicit, cooperation from statist Republicans.
Thanks for the link. Still CNN Pamela Brown citing unnamed “law enforcement sources”.
While I admire the way you think that's a bit impractical for a number of reasons. In most, even 99% of cases, the issued weapon is the M16. Only medics (the Navy has corpsmen) and in some cases, aviators, tankers and some officers (staff usually) are issued sidearms with which they have to qualify. It's nearly impossible to lug an M16 around daily especially to the office. Imagine leaving your rifle in the latrine (the navy calls it the Head and civilians call it the bathroom) where any janitor could find it.
I was an officer in an infantry outfit. Guys like me lead the killers in their duties of knocking off the enemy. Don't tell me I don't "need a sidearm!" I was also Executive Officer of the post pistol team (second in command) for a time. Back in those days, when General Dozier was kidnapped over in Italy by terrorists (later executed) my bosses who were the Division Commander and his key staff ordered all division staff OFFICERS to come to work after drawing a sidearm (1911 45acp) and at least two magazines of ball ammo and wear said sidearm under the duty uniform, concealed. When the division HQ building was hit with a bomb threat, they evacuated and then sent all of us LIEUTENANTS back inside to look for the "device!" It sure made me feel special, I'll tell you. Special and decidedly expendable.
“What difference does it make?”
Here’s another vid
FBI confirms Aaron Alexis did not own AR15 & entered Navy Yard with valid ID
You get it!! What goes out first sticks!!!! So the AR15 report will stick even though it is now admitted to be erroneous a fabrication or a lie
I wouldn’t be surprised if Di-Fi should calls for allowing cops and guards to only have single shot pistols. Only a two guards and two others would have been killed.
Her and all the other gun grabbers are o.k. with the police, and them, having guns. they just don’t want you to be able to defend yourself when they decide it is time to “resettle and relocate” you. And who will do the resettling and relocating? The local police departments,
He bought the gun in the navy yard? That’s funny.
AR-15: Anti-Gun Narrative Blows Up In Face of CNN, Daily News [ Shotgun used not AR15 ]
That was it.
You learn so much from the media about weapons! /s
An adorable, but delusional, FOX News talking head told us that “the AR-15 is the civilian version of the M-16. Unlike the M-16, which is fully automatic, the AR-15 is a semi-automatic that is limited to firing three-shot bursts with each trigger pull.” She said that when witnesses reported hearing “pop pop pop” gunfire, that was the semi-automatic AR-15.
Meanwhile over on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell said that the weapon was an AK-15! Who knew!
Even while the AR-15 was still being widely reported yesterday as the prime weapon of the killer, a Marine Corps officer (the one who had been standing next to a man shot in the head) said that the primary weapon was a pistol.
I took that to the bank.
It has to be blamed on an AR 15. It is the most feared rifle (by liberals). I used to wonder why, when the M1A, Mini 14 and Mini 30 were still legal in Kalifornia. (They won’t be much longer).
I recently began studying the AR 15 and its variants. I found out why they fear it most, and I bought one shortly afterward.
Don’t walk past ANY high rise window where Piers Morgan may be working for a few days... He may be saddened enough to leap out.
Seems he was one of the FIRST - if not THE first - to start spreading that story.
(...OK, just kidding everyone...calm down...)
As a veteran Im aware of the issues you note. My position is that if we can afford to bomb aspirin factories with million dollar bombs and if we can afford to execute "very small" strikes against Syria with cruise missiles costing 10s of millions then there is enough money laying around to to have both available to our troops along with the money necessary for them to qualify on more than one weapon. True, most troops simply don't require M16s. Then again, Im not the type to try to drive nails with a screwdriver. Different tools for different tasks. A sidearm isn't going to get in the way of latrine duty, weed n seed, or stirring oatmeal in the mess. I am proposing either/or for the majority of service members, most getting sidearms. Infantry, security, and similar troops should ALSO have a sidearm available along with their M16. Im aware of the issue of the weight of the total combat gear that infantry soldiers struggle with, they should still have the option to carry both.
As far as losing the weapon...all I have to say is that 18 year old Israeli girls seem to be able to find a place in their bikinis for their compacts during a day at the beach with their friends and still remember to not lose their rifle. I cant imagine why properly trained American troops on base shouldnt somehow be able to pull off a task as simple as not losing a sidearm in a latrine. (Place a hook near the handle for hanging the belt so that they have to reach past it to open the door. Im sure there is a contractor out there that should be able to produce them for only $37,000 per unit.)
Unless you were looking for "a section 8", I doubt you were standing up front using your .45 as a pointer for your unit to follow. I suspect the unfortunate reality is that he day an infantry officer "needs" to personally shoot someone in the field there should be plenty of M16s laying around for them to use. Maybe a marksman such as yourself should have been issued something more capable than the M16 all along, yet still have had the option to carry a sidearm. The rest of the days in your career you should have had access to a sidearm instead.
Then it must have been an Assault Shotgun.
Of course it does... Everything does to you people. If an airplane, you are one, lands 15 minutes late, you would scream cover-up.
That's all probably true today, since we've been on a war footing for so many years, like the Israelis have since .... ummmm 1948. When I was on active duty in the 1980s, though, it was the Cold War and the troops were almost universally more scatter-brained. A buddy of mine, another platoon leader was doing a water crossing and one of his guys just lost an M60 machinegun (precursor to the M249 ? 7.62x51) into the Nisqually River. Just "OOPS!" Never recovered a belt fed weapon that was in pristine shape. I sometimes wondered if the kid went back on his own time with a scuba tank and made some great money on his "loss." Or if he did that and just kept it for a SHTF rainy day.
you people ???
your not as intelligent as you believe yourself to be..sad.
Says the guy with tin foil on his head? Yes, you people.
