I am almost sorry to ask this but here goes. Why weren't there any reports of wounded at the Sandy Hook, Newton site? That just does not make sense. If the answer is there were not any, then I am very concerned.

That is too weird to believe. Something is out there that we are not being told.
That is like impossible. Unless one of two things: He had time to administer up close kill shots, or they were left wounded until they died. First responders are about 1 minute out in urban areas, maximum 5, we are taught that in first aid classes.
""How many people survive a massacre with an automatic weapon, they are built to kill as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time."" I am trying to get people to understand that the above comment is incorrect. That is not the purpose.
Really, What other purpose does a weapon like that have other than to kill;and to kill fast. For a soldier or law enforcement officer it may save his life and those of others! For a civilian it is a toy!
Justsilvie, No that is a misconception. If an assault weapon serves the purpose of killing it is totally random. Police do not use them period. Police set up groups to use them /s.w.a.t. Soldiers rarely kill with them. It is never a toy. Not to kill.
I put them under the heading "toy" for people who buy them and have no legitimate use for them other than to own them. Like the ones rushing out to buy them now just so they can say they own them in case they ban the ownership of this type of weapon
Think deeper. These are not pet rocks or cabbage patch dolls. They are not ipads or Ipods. They have specific military purpose and no civilian purpose. Most would survive an attack. Few would survive assassination later. Unless time intervened.
Eric I totally agree with you! They have no other purpose other than military, the word "Toy" is said with sarcasm. I am not even sure why in the world they are on the open market?
