No, the FBI says NO AR-15 was used.
He bought a gun legally? Where? When?
You are walking a slippery slope here.
Medical records are, for the moment, still private. The subset of mental health records is even “more” private. A medical provider cannot release mental health records unless there is a signed release that specifically states that they can be released. After the implementation of owebamacare the fedgov will likely have access to ALL of your health records any time they want.
So who decides if someone is crazy and shouldn’t be allowed to own a weapon? This regime believes that Tea Party, conservative, freedom loving Americans and Veterans are subversive threats to their ultimate goals of power and total control. That makes us all crazy in their eyes.
Who’s side are you on?
According to sources, he bought a shotgun just before the shooting.
Well said. Good point.
“I thought it was an AR-15 shotgun. “
There was a reporter from Fox at the White house who heard what sounded like gun shots and reported that a secret service guy suddenly showed up with “a big gun”. He had no idea if it was a rifle, shotgun, bazooka, etc. The only description he could offer was “big”. These people are completely ignorant on these issues.
Gee thanks FBI. I thought all federal military issued civilian sportsman models with a 3 round burst feature.
I wonder if we can truly believe the FBI ?
Can we believe and trust the Government ?
We have been lied to so many time, hard to believe anything told to us..
Do we trust the Main Stream Media ?
I SURE DONT...
There is just something about this killing that cry’s COVER UP TO ME.
AND FEEL VERY SAD FOR THE TWELVE FAMILIES WHO LOST LOVED ONES...
A black guy that used a black gun!
I have read 3 articles that swore by the AR15, and one that claimed it was the weapon with which he did all the damage.
We need a way for Free Republic to go viral on stuff like this.
I recommend a county-by-county anti-gun-grabbers, well-written, informative alert freepmail/flyer to individual freepers. They will be requested to forward that message to their entire email list(s).
State-by-state and county-by-county (or parish), there are only 3141 in the USA. We could blanket the USA in a matter of hours, and maybe some of it would even go viral.
I wonder how many counties (parishes) are represented on FR? Most probably.
If the media are criticized for how they initially reported they simply claim that, among all the confusion, they were reporting the facts as them knew them.
Twelve (victims murdered)
Race of all victims:WHITE
Race of shooter: BLACK
Friends of Navy Yard gunman describe him as a 'hardcore drinker' who spent hours playing violent shooting video games
Aaron Alexis, 34, converted to Buddhism and liked to meditate but also had marathon sessions playing violent video games
Shooter was being treated for serious mental illness and had been 'hearing voices'
His friend and employer said he once appeared at work with a gun tucked into his waistband
Another friend said Alexis had complained of racial discrimination
Alexis was kicked out of the Navy in 2011 after arrest for firing a gun into neighbor's apartment in Fort Worth, Texas

Exactly how many were shot and killed by the shotgun, and how many were killed by the pistols.
btw, Shouldn't that give us even more ‘incentives’ to possess an AR-15, rather than a pistol, when facing a shotgun wielding lunatic?
Most likely the newly banned M1 Garand, WWII military assault rifle, with the high capacity 8 round clip, which was responsible for killing hundreds of thousands of freedom loving people exerting their right to support their democratically elected governments of Germany and Italy, as well as those peaceful servants of the Emperor of Japan.
I'd like to know if he was on meds...
No she isn't. The AR15 story got out there, it doesn't matter it's false. The grabbers will ignore this clarification, they always do. They'll be hollering about this for weeks to come.
It would be interesting to note if there was an intentional selection of victims by race.
This would have to be gleaned from witnesses present during the shooting.
The names of seven out of the 12 people killed in the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday have been released.
The Washington Post reports that police have confirmed the identities of those individuals as:
Michael Arnold, 59.
Sylvia Frasier, 53.
Kathy Gaarde, 62.
John Roger Johnson, 73.
Frank Kohler, 50.
Bernard Proctor, 46.
Vishnu Pandit, 61.
The suspected gunman, 34-year-old Aaron Alexis, was also killed at the scene.
The remaining names will be released once families are notified, KTLA reported.
All of the victims killed were civilians or contractors, according to CNN.
Multiple people were also injured in the shooting. A Navy announcement Monday afternoon put the number of those wounded at 14, DC Mayor Vince Gray said at a 10:15 press conference that only eight were injured in total.
I suspect “Vishnu Pandit” is not your typical redneck of European descent.
The media uses the words “destroyer” and “battleship” interchangeably to mean “warship”. I doubt that even half the people at CNN know the difference between a shotgun and rifle, and to which class, if either, the AR-15 belongs. All they know is that guns are scary and the Navy has boats that shoot things.
They [the left] really have a fear of the AR-15 -
which means it is the rifle whose ownership we must most protect.
As of now, CNN says no AR was used. It's not like CNN is the most accurate mockingbird out there.
Have regular and irregular patrols of MPs and make sure carefully selected officers (No *Mohammad* types) carry sidearms at all times.
This clown wouldn't have gotten far.
Well, an M-16 is not an AR-15. Could it be that the FBI is being cute, here?
On the other hand, elsewhere I have seen it that he had a shotgun and two pistols he took from his victims.
Well, since the guns were taken from law enforcement, they should not have guns anymore. Just like London. Just think how many lives would have been spared if leo didn’t have these evil pieces of metal!
The media fixation on the AR-15 is completely absurd. A nutcase with a bow and arrow can kill, and as I suspect the case here, shooting down on a crowd or down corridor with a shotgun is pretty deadly too.
The Benelli M4 Super 90 has been adopted by the Navy/Marines as the M1014 - the receiver looks a lot like that of an AK.
The press get it wrong again.
What a surprise.
Didn’t you hear, now they say it was his ‘actual’ ID for the gig.
No telling what else they have gotten wrong. Who feed them this info to begin with?
And the lapse in security clearances was due to the sequester. /sarc.
The false storyline has already been created for low-information voters.
Never let a crisis go to waste ...
Thanks for the ping!
In this case, a guy who uses excuses to shoot others and who almost killed someone before this with a gun should have been on some national data base for sure.
Now unless you want to lobotomize the mental, we have to have the mental documented and restricted from certain activities.
Do you want one as a crossing guard?
Do you want them having sensitive security clearances?
Precisely their plan - Alinsky tactics. Strike first and quickly with the lie so it becomes “fact.”
The people in the military presently carrying sidearms, except base LEOs, are those who "don't really need them" (officers), or those who should be carrying some type of more capable weapon (security).
The rest should have the ability to secure at least their own safety or better, to use a sidearm as intended, to "fight their way back to the rifle they shouldn't have set down."
The elitist idea that rank and file military cant be trusted with a pistol is asinine. This idea was born from the tradition of sword and pistol representing status of a noble in command and has no place in a functional modern military.
If Im supposed to trust an individual to drive a tank, fire artillery, fly ordinance over my city, or protect my Secrets, then I can trust them to carry a sidearm.
Those who cant be trusted SHOULDNT BE IN THE MILITARY and need to be booted.
Cmon it was an AR-15 Shotgun, but I cant seem to find store that hasnt sold out of them already../sarc.
Back when those two guys were sniping at people in Washington, D.C., Katie Coric opined that the AR-type rifle's accuracy was especially deadly because "it had spirals in the barrel". (I am not creative enough to make up something like this)
Where can I get one and does it come in both 12 and 20 ga. ?
Piers Morgan said that it was a FACT that the gunman bought the AR-15 from a Northern Virginia gun store. FACT!
* Obviously, I don’t mean that those engaging in specific tasks where the sidearm is more likely to do harm should be carrying while doing those specific tasks, ie the lab tech doing MRIs shouldn’t be carrying while in the same room as the imager, etc.
This is a twitter by Pamela Brown of CNN. Has anyone seen a definitive statement by the FBI?
Has CNN yet confirmed its dismissal of Piers Morgan for his knee-jerk histrionics unfounded on any facts?
