As usual media got it wrong

Now the facts are starting to come out we find out that the killer in Washington DC never had semi-automatic weapons at all…he used a pump action shotgun and stole Glock handguns from his victims.

This is why people like Piers Morgan should just stfu.

Authorities investigating Monday’s D.C. shooting spree believe the gunman brought a shotgun, legally purchased from a suburban Virginia gun shop, to the Navy Yard and acquired additional weapons at the scene, according to three law enforcement officials.

The officials said Aaron Alexis of Fort Worth, Texas, a 34-year-old discharged Navy engineer, entered the building with a Remington 870 12-gauge shotgun that he’d purchased last week in Lorton, Va., and was later found with two additional weapons, one of them a Glock handgun.

One scenario authorities were investigating was that he obtained the handgun and the other weapon at the scene, possibly from victims. But officials cautioned the evidence analysis was still very fluid Monday night. 

A key question that remained to be answered was whether an AR-15 semiautomatic weapon found at the scene was involved in the shooting.

Law enforcement officials said Tuesday there was no evidence Alexis obtained, used or fired an AR-15 but that some of the officers who responded at the scene likely brought that weapon.

Forensic analysis wild determine if any of the shots fired came from those weapons.

One of the painstaking tasks for crime-scene technicians will be reconstructing what rounds were fired by the suspect and which were fired by law enforcement or security personnel.

    Poor Piers even his ex, Liberal, gun free paradise is calling time out on this gun free shit. I see a recent ( telegraph ? ) survey asked if gun laws should allow again private firearm ownership. 85% of respondents wanted guns back into the hands of the private citizen. Piers should get back on a plane and return to his much loved liberal hell hole, seems they are losing the faith and he needs to peddle more of his liberal horseshit.

    Mass shootings are down in the US . Some factors in Alex’s history : He had paranoid sleep disorder , PTSD , was hearing voices and experienced blackouts during fits of rage . He was being treated since August by the Veterans administration , and it appears that he was prescribed the anti-depressant Paroxetine , which is the #3 violence causing drug .
    The batman killer James Holmes killed 13 people in a theater on Zoloft . The Columbine killer was also on anti-depressants , as were most other mass killers .
    I think that the strongest determining factor is not guns , but the violence causing drugs that warp the minds of already unbalanced people .

      The problem isn’t the guns Ronnie but the US medical system. The pharmaceutical industry comes second behind the military industrial complex. it would seem it’s a lethal combination.

    I am not too clued up on guns, but I thought that Glocks were semi-automatics.
