That report likely aired in the 24 hours following the incident. hard data was scarce and reports of a second shooter found in the woods near the school were still circulating.
I'll rehash another post...
Let's assume for a second that the shooter used a shotgun or handgun instead of an AR.
Lets think about the number of people involved in the conspiracy. First are all the LEO's and first responders such as EMT's and Paramedics. I'd imagine most of them are capable of identifying handgun casings and shotgun shells. Yet none mentions them, why?
Next we'll add in State Law Enforcement officials and Federal officials as well. I'd imagine most of them are capable of identifying handgun casings and shotgun shells as well. Let's not forget the numerous surviving witnesses at the scene.
Let's follow the bodies and add in medical examiners, coroners plus the numerous Physician's plus Nurses and other medical personnel that assisted the few that made it to the hospital. I'm pretty sure they could identify shotgun/handgun wounds as opposed to rifles. After all, it's their job!
Let's not forget that the parents had to ID the bodies. Certainly one of them could identify the distinctive pattern of shotgun impacts. Nobody among the hundreds of people who've witnessed the carnage firsthand is willing to blow the whistle about a fictitious AR? In fact, the parents of the deceased are part of the conspiracy?
As it relates to the gun in the trunk conspiracy.. What does it have to do with anything? The shooter was found dead inside the school. If you believe the shooter used the gun in the trunk you either believe that he left the school and returned the gun to the trunk(minus the other guns) and ignored an obvious opportunity to flee the scene or perhaps his deceased corpse dragged the gun to the trunk and then returned to the school and the other guns to be found by first responders...
