Dr. H. Wayne Carver, the medical examiner investigating the December 14, 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, said autopsies completed on 20 children and six adults on Saturday showed they were killed with multiple bullets fired by a rifle at close range.
“I’ve been at this for a third of a century and my sensibilities may not be those of the average man, but this probably is the worst I have seen or the worst that I know of any of my colleagues have seen,” Carver told reporters gathered at Treadwell Park, less than a mile from the school where the shooting occurred.
The veteran medical examiner told reporters that the victims had all been identified and their bodies released. Carver appeared to be very uncomfortable during his news conference, complete with conspicuously nervous laughter throughout. It was a rather odd and macabre display of callousness; down right creepy, if you ask me.
He said all of the victims he had examined had all been shot by a Bushmaster .223 caliber assault rifle, one of at least two weapons Adam Lanza, the 20-year-old suspected shooter, used to commit one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.
Yet on later that same day, NBC reported that both federal and state officials had confirmed to them that in fact Lanza carried 4 pistols into the school. That, in fact, Lanza left the Bushmaster rifle in his car and didn’t take it into the school.
I am not a nutty conspiracy theorist, but something went on here and someone, for some reason, was lying about the weapon or weapons Lanza used to slaughter these kids and their teachers.
Yet, I don’t here a word about this major discrepency of facts. Why not?
If this school was assaulted by Lanza using only handguns, why the sudden hew and cry over the banning of assault weapons?
Is no one else even the slightest bit curious to find the facts in this case, before we go off and start the great American gun grab? Guess not.
