Well, I don’t often commend the New York Times, but thanks, guys, for posting the entire list of items seized under a search warrant.
For starters, since Adam took his mother’s AR-15 and two pistols to Sandy Hook Elementary, and left his shotgun in the trunk of his Honda, that left little at home to constitute an arsenal, let alone a cache or even a collection.
Second, since this list was compiled by veteran police officers, I’m a little surprised by some of the entries, including:
- An Enfield “Albian” rifle in .323 caliber. Since they also recovered boxes of standard .303 British ammunition, the .323 looks like a typo. So does the Albian. Albion Motor Works in Scotland made .38 revolvers for Enfield, but I’m not
familiar with an Albian rifle.
- A Volcanic .22 caliber starter revolver. This only fires blanks, so is not a firearm.
- A Saiga semi-automatic 12-gauge shotgun found in his car, along with TWO magazines containing SEVENTY rounds of ammunition. I’ve seen a 20-round drum for the Saiga, but not one that could hold 35 rounds.
Please take a look at the published list. I’d appreciate any corrections, clarifications, or additions.
