    Didn't see anything about an assault rifle. Said military style but that could be anything, even a garand or a bolt action. Might not have been used but in collection of the owner. Will have to wait for more facts.

    I wonder if the 15yr old shooter is one of the family members. A neighbor was quoted in the article as saying husband, wife, and 4 children.....?

    No, it didn't. Please reread.

    Authorities said each victim suffered more than one gunshot wound, and several guns were found at the home, one of which was a semi-automatic military-style rifle.


    New link: at least suspects it though
    Police believe the teenager used an AR-15 semi automatic rifle in the shooting. Multiple weapons were retrieved from the house.

    Not sure if the article was updated or if I'm just that bad at reading while watching a movie...

    Now it says one of the firearms found was military style semi automatic. We all know military style semi auto on Fox becomes "automatic machine gun mass killing machine" on CNN.

    Nonetheless, what I was getting at is they're going to make this kid famous and make more just like him.

    Another homicidal incident brought to you by the big pharma-industrial complex and their drug pushing doctors.

    yup, it was the 15 yr old son that killed the rest of the family. Just saw it on the local news. The local sheriff mentioned an assault rifle in the news conference.

    the family is related to NM State Senator Eric Griego (D) who ran for U.S. Congress but lost in the last election.

    more fuel for the anti gunners......

    In the good old days, when people were shot dead, it was common to blame the person who pulled the trigger. Nowadays the media makes out that nobody is capable of being responsible for anything, so we have to blame the gun, other people who own guns, the victim, pharmaceutical companies, schools, ad nauseum.

    Time to ban 15y/o's!

    Skip from 14 straight to 16, problem solved.

    That article says "AR15 used" but no where in the body of the article does it say it was used? It just says multiple gun were found at the scene.

    The NY antigun folks are going to be talking about this in the morning. If new mexico had a smart mag capacity law like we do, it would have prevented the misguided boy from loading more than 7 bullets into the gun. He would have been arrested for loading in the 8th bullet and that would have prevented all the deaths.

    hope this kid gets the "chair".

    don't give a ***** about what gun he used, or whose politics are being swayed.

    The media? How about society in general including right here on freedom loving GT. The same people who will say you "can't blame the gun" will be the first to bring up other excuses. Actually, just look a few posts above yours for proof.
