Default UPDATE: State Police Confirm Newtown Weapons

I was suspicious of the government withholding or even lying about the types of weapons used by the New Town murderer.

I now think the situation was just too chaotic, and there was incorrect information reported immediately following the event. PARTICUALRY the MSNBC “news” video reporting there were only handguns used in the shooting.

Below is a more recent news report and link.
I think the stated facts in this news report I’ve posted fit the facts as I know them.

#1. Bushmaster .223 caliber– model XM15-E2S rifle with high capacity 30 round clips

#2. Glock 10 mm handgun

#3. Sig-Sauer P226 9mm handgun

Seized from suspect’s car in parking lot:

Saiga in Russian Cyrillic is "Саига". Easy to see where the 'Canta' came from.

Maybe they are using a play on words. The DESPP calls them "clips"?
