Posted on 01/18/2013 2:12:13 PM PST by Uncle Chip
In press conferences that have been held since 12/14, the Connecticut State Police have identified all of the weapons seized from the crime scene at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
"To eliminate any confusion or misinformation, we will again describe and identify the weapons seized at the school crime scene," Connecticut State Police Spokesman Lt J. Paul Vance said Friday, January 18, via a press release.
Seized inside the school were the following: a Bushmaster .223 caliber-- model XM15-E2S rifle with high capacity 30 round clips; a Glock 10 mm handgun; and a Sig-Sauer P226 9mm handgun.
Seized from the suspects car in parking lot was a Izhmash Canta-12 12 gauge Shotgun.
The case remains under investigation.

The act put on by one of the kid's dad was amazing...So many unanswered questions...It's worth the watch...
FR was right? No. There's plenty of us long-time Freepers here who aren't buying the "Sandy Hook was a conspiracy!" bulls#!t. Common sense tells us that Lanza used a Bushmaster. The ME confirmed it as does this article.
This place has been inundated with Sandy Hook Truthers. I don't know what their motivation is but they've grown tiresome and Jim needs to clean house. They're an embarrassment to his site.
I saw an interview with the local Sheriff on CNN one day. He said Nancy Lanza’s guns were properly stored. There was (surprisingly) no follow up question.
Call the police and ask them. Could he have taped 3 10 round clips together and that be what they are referring to as a 30 round clip??? I remember them saying that he had taped clips? or magazines? together.
Agree 100%! Enough is enough.
Can’t verify any of the info in the following article I’ve linked but it may either help or confuse more the questions you are asking.
There has been a lot of discussion on clips versus magazines. My experience doesn’t go that far into weapons but my question is it possible he had clips to reload the magazines to be used in the rifle? In other words do people carry clips as opposed to ammo in some other container for use when reloading?
All the victims at the school were shot with a rifle, at least some of them up close, and all were apparently shot more than once, Chief Medical Examiner Dr H. Wayne Carver said.
The Bushmaster was used in the school in its entirety and the handgun was used to take his own life,’ Mr Vance said in a Sunday afternoon press conference.
But now it has been revealed he had more ammunition in the form of multiple, high-capacity clips each capable of holding 30 bullets, raising the possibility Lanza had planned an even deadlier massacre and was stopped short.
‘There was a lot of ammo, a lot of clips,’ said state police Lt. Paul Vance.

Maybe I missed something. I prolly did. Why doesn’t he just use a 30 rd magazine?
Sounds like a lot of taping and thinking a such. There are Mag couplers where you dont have to use tape or anything.
What was the question again?
“My experience doesnt go that far into weapons but my question is it possible he had clips to reload the magazines to be used in the rifle? In other words do people carry clips as opposed to ammo in some other container for use when reloading?”
Is that your measure of normality???
If you have something to say to me, then ping me.
30 round clips??
Never saw one.
It may be difficult and even impossible but they say that they can get something off of it. Good for them. Let’s see what they get.
Donny Johnson had one on Miami Vice.
This Alex Jones bullcrap is getting tiresome.
Next we’ll be told Lanza was recently at Bohemian Grove eating babies with Sasquatch.
Wow!!! Such an accusation just for posting this press release. It must have really hit a nerve. Put a bandaid on it.
Why is it so hard to accept the fact that 26 people died by means of an Bushmaster .223 caliber— model XM15-E2S rifle???
it’s been ingrained since 1963 Magic Bullet theory
WACO Ruby Ridge Vince Foster etc...our govt especially under Obama are a bunch of liars.
Hardly. Only those who use silencing tactics like Alinsky have had nerve struck...others resort to mature, reasoned discussion, something you're sorely lacking.
I got a weak thumb.
I’ve done it using the breakdown tool bit it’s faster to drop the mag and insert another...for me.
Oh wait, that was politically motivated, this case has nothing to do with political agendas...yeah, I'm a sheep and except everything the media and authorities now say as "fact" because there could be no reason they would lie /s
It's the state of Connecticut in front of 28,000 witnesses in Newtown who are conducting this investigation -- not the Feds behind closed doors with no witnesses.
How many Germans did Sgt Alvan York kill using a 5 shot clip loading bolt action rifle?
and those "others" would be the Sandy Hook Truthers right???
***The 1903 Springfield***
There was a time when Springfield or Rock Island were making a sports rifle in competition with Winchester and Remington.
They were told to stop as it was not right for a government arsenal to be in competition with US gunmakers.
Must have painted those from memory. None of that is Ozark country.
My point was...were the weapons really “used in the investigation?” It’s a poorly written headline. Should read: “State Police Investigation Identifies Weapons Used in Sandy Hook Shooting.”
That's "саига 12"
саига is pronounced "saiga".
You can't just pick the English letter it looks most like and pronounce it that way.
Go troll some one else.
ao what was Eric of fast and furious fame Holder doing there? why no real press releases until now?
Hard for me to imagine Feds and State Police interchanging ‘assault’ rifles - shot guns or clip - magazines as being reported so sloppily.
The more cynic side of me thinks this new report did very little to clarify (keep in mind the medical examiner's earlier report), it only spurs even more debate. Judging from the # of posts, it's doing a ‘great job’.
Photo Op — to show that he is on top of everything when he really is not.
Do ya think that if he had something nefarious to conduct that he would do it in broad daylight calling attention to his presence there???? and the families of the 26 dead would allow for it???
My goodness — the truthers on this site give the conspiracy theorists here a bad name.
They’ve been whining for a month that there has been no official announcement about the shooting and then when one comes in about the weapons used they all go ballistic.
They need to grow up —
So then by “Canta” they actually mean “Saiga”.
What a shame.
Some of us FReepers don’t want this site to turn into an Alex Jones style truther den, and feel compelled to combat the rabid, irresponsible junk that keeps getting posted on this topic. If you are looking for a “hidden agenda”, then there it is. No need to start yet another conspiracy theory.
Oh. Okay. Haha. Of course. Happens all the time.
I don’t know the exact number... but he killed a LOT of them. So many that an even greater number surrendered to him.
Sigh, also. Yes I completely and fully understood your point. It was indeed a poorly written headline. Sarcasm looses it’s effectiveness when it has to be explained. I was agreeing with you, and it was in fact written right there in black and white” as poorly as you please...”weapons used in investigation”. Sorry it was lost on you. But on a happy note I like your screen name. Back in 1976 when I was a 15 year old new driver my mother had a 12 cylinder XKE 2+2. It was a beautiful car...yellow with tan interior. It smelled like a sports car ought to like gasoline, leather and exhaust.
Wow, you’re a sick individual.
I called you a name?
You’re the one here calling people truthers, not me.
Please see post 138. Thank you.
No one has censored you. But when your postulations that are nothing more than clay pigeons get shot down time and again then it would be wise for you to get the message and move along. If you can't compete in the arena of ideas without whining then go sit in the stands.
then the rest of us should be told.
And by "us" you mean who??
the Sandy Hook Truthers who have been whining that there is no official report from the police then when the police do release a report they whine about the police releasing the report.
Go make another U Tube propaganda video. We need another laugh.
No — I addressed it to Truthers and you took offence as if I was addressing you.
That question of yours does not even deserve to be dignified with a response. You still don’t get it.
Are you referring to this official press release by the state police as a “sales pitch”???
