If you read the actual report available when this story was posted it does NOT say an AR15 was used merely that there was a 'military style rifle' found in the house...even this article says it was ONE of the weapons (plural) used....there were several rifles in the house, only one of which was a 'military style' rifle and more than one type was used but all people want to do is jump on the 'assault style rifle' part of the story. That's all you seem to see...

Read it a little closer and he was charged with 2 counts of murder and 3 counts of CHILD ABUSE RESULTING IN DEATH. Did you get that? He didn't shoot the kids...he abused them to death. But you all don't really give a sh!t about the victims as long as you can somehow bring up the whole AR issue - and you know what? That attitude is sick too.

Stop with the pointless blaming the weapon and confusing the issue so we can start looking at the real problem. There could have been 30 people in there cut to pieces with an axe and one shot with an AR and the news would probably read "AR used in BRUTAL slaying".
