Aurora, Co –The Aurora Colorado police chief is reporting that the so call ‘Dark Night’ Shooter use four common everyday weapons, include an AR15 rifle, 12gauge Shot Gun and two Glock 40 caliber handguns.
None of these could be considered assault weapons as being reported by Mayor Blommberg and others and in fact are typical everyday weapons owned by millions of law abiding US families for common sports shooting, hunting and self defense.
No reports on the type of magazines used are available at this time. Thankfully the state of Colorado appears to have no limits on magazine capacity, but for the exception of Denver which has a in city limit of 21 rounds for firearms with Detachable Magazine. Not that magazine capacity size makes any difference in this situation, as criminals intent on breaking the law would not follow those laws to begin with, therefor law abiding citizen should not have to suffer limits on magazine size.
It seems that what victims were reporting as “shrapnel” was most likley shot gun pellets, fired into the defensless crowds.
