Facts disprove claims about Sandy Hook murders

An April 10 letter writer said that the media was lying about the guns used in the Sandy Hook murders. He claimed that the killer used four handguns and not the assault rifle that was reported.

The following is from the police report of that crime: The shooter used the Bushmaster .223 to murder 20 children and six adults inside the school; he used a handgun to take his own life inside the school. No other weapons were used in this crime. This case remains under investigation.

The letter writer admonishes media and others to get the facts. Well, here they are. It’s time he take his own advice. He should know this puts all of his other claims in the dubious category.
