    Default Navy Yard shooting: AR-15, back in the news -- briefly

    Oh no, what is the anti-gun group going to do now?

    It has been called the most popular rifle in America, and it briefly returned to the spotlight after Monday's shooting at the Navy Yard: the AR-15.

    A U.S. law enforcement official said Monday that gunman Aaron Alexis unleashed a barrage of bullets using an AR-15, a rifle and a semi-automatic handgun. Authorities believed the AR-15 was used for most of the shooting, the official said. The news prompted Sen. Dianne Feinstein, one of the strongest proponents of a ban on assault weapons like the AR-15, to issue a statement the same day asking, "When will enough be enough?"


    However, federal law enforcement sources told CNN Tuesday that authorities have recovered three weapons from the scene of the mass shooting, including one -- a shotgun -- that investigators believe Alexis brought in to the compound. The other two weapons, which sources say were handguns, may have been taken from guards at the Navy complex.

    The response team was also armed with ARs.
    Oh well. Blaming crime on a certain weapon or its manufacturer is like blaming BMW for producing fine getaway cars.

    AR-15 not legally acquired?
    Non-starter for the MSM...

    left in media so quick to jump and blame the gun saying AR-15 should only be available to police and military, but from report now emerging the AR-15 was from guard he shot and it was not his.

    I was about to say this. He killed a guard and took it from them.

    Good. Let the gun shops know to stock up on AR-15's again because they'll be selling 'em quick.

    I can already see Obama and Feinstein climbing on the fresh corpses to promote their gun-grabbing agenda.

    The FBI flatly states now, that there WAS NO AR-15 used by the shooter. He came in with a legally purchased shotgun (he purchased recently in Virginia) and "acquired" the handgun after he entered the Navy Yard (assume this means he got it from a guard?).

    I know commanding. Initially, MSNBC reported there was an AR-15 involved. Now we know there wasn't.

    Madame Piers Morgan is scrambling to find an angle now that new facts have come to light regarding the weapons and how they were acquired.
