  1. He did not have a military issue M16. It’s a AR 15. Big difference. Neither of his weapons,the AR 15 or the M 4 (carbine with a shorter barrel) were capable of automatic weapons fire. They were semi automatic. Which means you have to pull the trigger ever time you want to discharge a round.

    600 million firearms and 25 trillion rounds of ammo in the hands of legal citizens. Legal citizens are not the problem. If we were you would know it.

    Mental health is never addressed. Every mass causality the red flags are NEVER addressed. Not prior or in the aftermath.

  2. Um, there’s no M-4 or M-16 in those images. An AR-15 yes, but an AR-15 is not an M-4 or M-16.
    Neither is that a Glock pistol. It is a Springfield Armory XD Mod. 2. Get your facts straight, please!!
