The shootings in Sandy Hook, Connecticut today were all done with the use of a .223 caliber rifle, according to NBC.

CNN reports that 20 year old Adam Lanza used one Sig Sauer and one Glock. While Glock doesn’t manufacture assault rifles, Sig Sauer is the “Rolls Royce” of assault rifle producers.

According to USA Today, the weapon was most likely a magazine fed, semi-automatic rifle with enough rounds to shoot about a hundred shots in a matter of minutes.

While it is fairly common for a civilian to own a .223 caliber rifle, it is still of the same quality of the NATO 5.56 round the military use in combat.

Introverts Aren’t Shy… They’re Just More Complex Than You

You never talked? You never went out in high school? You were such an introvert. The word slithers from their mouths, biting me with its innuendoes and connotations. It’s a jab, a smack, an insult that lies somewhere between “socially awkward” and “f*cking loser.” What I’d like to say back to my high school peers, […]
