You understand wrong. This was one of the first reports that were given. The media was giving out info before they had the facts. The bushmaster was the primary weapon. He used 30 round clips and "jyngle taping" so that he could change out the clips faster. According to the coroners report, all the children were pretty riddled with bullet wounds. The coroner stated that the bushmaster was the primary weapon. The shooter did kill himself with a handgun. If you believe these first reports, you probably think that wrestling is real and tglhe moon landing was faked.
And your understanding is wrong. Very few weapons take "clips". What you're referring to are magazines. And whether he used the AR or the handguns, he stole them, so a background check wouldn't have stopped him. And if AR's are banned, he could have done just as much damage with the handguns her stole.

Dude, you're missing the point. Civilians don't have access to "assault weapons". The military doesn't use AR's. I'm skeptical of your claims of being in the service. But, I'll play your game for a minute. Even if they did switch out certain parts to make these AR's capable of burst, they are no longer AR's. So, the military DOES NOT use the civilian Bushmasters.

Magazines, clips, whatever. Depending on the caliber, he would have had to reload 2 to 3 times to fire as many rounds as he did from 1 magazine/clip with the bushmaster, allowing more opportunity for intervention or escape. I have fired the bushmaster, so I know that I can fire more rounds more accurately with that weapon than with my .45. So, yes, the weapon does make a difference.

Actually, if you watch the you tube video on "sandy hook fully exposed" the media, coroner , and police stated 4 handguns were recovered with his body and bushmaster was recovered from trunk of his car. This video makes you wonder.

It looks like a shotgun in the trunk. But, I have heard within the past couple weeks that the Bushmaster wasn't used. I guess we'll ever know...

MASS PUNISHMENT DOES NOT WORK. These are tactics of the NWO, take the guns of the population then you do what you may with them. If the NWO or obama and cronies have there way on banning all classified supposed assault rifles, who is really going to impose the law. R they really going to send federal police to every nook and crany of this country, i think not. If they decide to do any of those things, there will be a lot of people dying, i would never give up my guns. We that have had the pleasure of serving this country, have also had plenty of training comperable or higher training then any regular soldier, so impose your law and send me a dronestrike that we be the only way i give up my guns all of them. Oshaaaa

I think if it swings that direction it will be a slow methodical process. First they ban them, secondly you halt production of new weapons, parts and ammo, then they will make possession illegal which as occasions to seize arise and people snitch on people this will remove many weapons from public hands thus reducing a large percentage of available weapons.
