    Why would the Bushmaster be mentioned with the "high capacity 30 round clips" and nothing about the pistols or shotgun magazines????

    Something fishy here......

    Did you go to the website, or are you just talking to hear yourself.

    No, they did not. When I talked with Neil Armstrong in December of 1969, he described the location to me in detail. He also told me...well, that you wouldn't believe either.

    What is the story behind the Saiga 12 shotgun left in the trunk? I guess we won't know until the made for TV movie is released.

    Using "slang" descriptions in an official police statement does not bode well for the department or their professionalism.

    I believe the initial news report reported they removed a AR rifle from the car trunk. Now they're claiming it was a Canta-Can'tbe shotgun or something?

    Is there a record that either the mother, or the shooter, purchased such a weapon?

    I smell conspiracy!!!

    "Clips"? Really? Who wrote that?

    I am also extremely surprised with the descriptors they used. "High capacity 30 round clips"? Someone is injecting their personal opinion there. NOT a good thing when it will be headed to court. Thirty round magazines are STANDARD for any AR type rifle. MAYBE if there was a 40 rounder the "high capacity" bullcrap might apply, and that's big maybe. It says "clips" in the plural when there is no mention of the number. Not a good idea for a press release.

    We should email the state police and complain then.
