Teenager charged in family killings planned more carnage: police


They found another rogue AR 15


quote:


The teenager told police he shot his mother, the first victim in his rampage, because he was "frustrated" with her, Houston said.
Police said that after shooting his brother and two sisters, Griego then waited five hours for his father to return from work and ambushed him with an AR-15 assault rifle - the same type of weapon used in the Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school shootings.




quote:

Police said that after the killings, Griego sent his 12-year-old girlfriend a picture of his mother's body and the two then spent the day together, possibly planning to kill her parents.



Terrible act, and a very disturbed couple of kids and even generation if you ask me, but I wonder, considering the number of killings with shotguns over rifles, and especially very specific rifles like n AR 15, are there not other tragic incidents involving say Mossberg Maverick 88 shotguns that often go unreported in the national news for no other reason thn they don't have the benefit of being a dreaded AR15?

The real problem is that the father was a felon who got the guns via straw purchases... and then didn't secure them from his nut job son.

They'll start reporting those after they ban the ARs, that way they can make the case to ban the next round of guns.

It was in the trunk of Lanza's car, that wasn't his car. He used only pistols, but everybody was killed with an AR15, like the one is his/not his trunk. And Emilie Parker is alive, and dead---get it straight.

It could have been an M4, or a Saiga 12' but it just wouldn't have the same umph as if it were an AR Fifteeeeeeeeen.

Speaking of Newtown, have they ever released pictures of the weapons or autopsy reports of the victims?

After Columbine they had pictures of the actual weapons used, so it was never in doubt. But in this story it's still cloudy as to what weapons were used to kill the victims.

Odd huh?

They usually love a grand parade of guns for the cameras. Not this time though.

Well first it was a Glock and Sig, then it was an AR also, then the AR was just in the trunk, then it was four pistols. Just trying to keep up with the story.

I believe the story is that the AR was the primary gun used, and the others were found in his possession, I suppose in a backpack or bag of some sort. The shotgun in the trunk wasn't used. All were his mother's guns.

I would say the real problem is f'd up kids. Most likely a result of piss poor parenting, and then no shock these shitty parents have rogue guns lying around. Sad stuff. So how do we fix shitty parents and whacked out kids?

"When the president surrounds himself with children while giving his announcement that reasonable gun control measures are necessary, bear in mind that those ‘assault rifles’ the government is sure to be going after were not even used in the Newton, Connecticut elementary shooting. As NBC admits in the video below, four handguns were used to carry out that despicable atrocity."

Executed 17 months later.

That's back when we didn't pussyfoot around with spree killers.

Nice.

why don't you research it? I am sure you can find them, b.c I feel confident they happen.
