Guess her nut case son grabbed it and brought it into the state of Conn.
We own a home up there where I visit on occasion. Did not know the laws had changed since I was a young lad up there.
My God. I went into a huge gun shop and asked if they had any AKs or ARs..
Damn. They looked at me like I was robbing the place. No forbodden in CT.
Not sure if they grandfathered the ones people owned.
The real key here is the media immediately blamed an assault weapon for what the nut case kid did. Without even knowing the facts, they put it on front page news.
Turns out by the coroners own admission, it was not used and never left the trunk.
To late, the antis had their bad guy gun front page.
With the sad incident. This is not an isolated case. First thing the lib media does is post the weapon used was a "Fully automatic killer machine gun, with a thousand round mag, capable of killing thousands with one pull of the trigger."
Such was the case here. It never left his trunk.
