    to this story . . . that's pretty clear.  Two (!) 9mm pistols and a .223 assault rifle (something in the neighborhood of $3,000 worth of guns), registered to a 50 something year old kindergarten teacher?  And accessable to her "mentally troubled" teenage kid?  

    Say what ? ? ?

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .

      almost by the minute.  It's not clear where the rifle came from (the one found in the shooter's car) -- at least I haven't seen anything so far.

      But yeah, parts of the story doesn't seem to add up at this point.  The latest is that the mother was not a teacher at the school but rather a part-time volunteer.  A lot of misinformation has been disseminated amongst all the chaos.

      Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.

    •  I don't see what is unclear? 9mm pistol = $400 (0+ / 0-)

      You don't think that a kindergarten teacher can afford guns, or what?  

      Even assuming the premise, maybe her husband can afford to buy them.

      •  Good luck finding (0+ / 0-)

        either a Sig or a Glock for $400, or a Bushmaster for much under $1,000.  Even the high capacity magazines will set you back close to $100 each.  And she had this arsenal for what?  Somethings . . . off . . .

        There's more to the story . . .

        she can afford a tank if her lawyer was good.

        fact does not require fiction for balance (proudly a DFH)
