    Obama: Newtown Shooter Gunned Down 20 Children With 'Fully Automatic Weapon'

    At a fundraiser last night in San Francisco, President Barack Obama said that the Newtown killer gunned down 20 children using a "fully automatic weapon." From the official transcript, provided by the White House:

    Now, over the next couple of months, we’ve got a couple of issues: gun control. (Applause.) I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon -- by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly.

    According to the prosecutor, Stephen J. Sedensky III, the killer, Adam Lanza, "killed all 26 victims inside Sandy Hook Elementary School with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle before taking his own life with a Glock 10 mm handgun. He says Lanza had another loaded handgun with him inside the school as well as three, 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster," ABC previously reported.
    Each of the guns used is a semi-automatic weapon, and not one is an automatic weapon.
    So either Obama is wrong--or he revealed something last night about the massacre that hasn't yet been known.

    I doubt he is revealing anything new about the massacre. I think he is wrong, knows he is wrong, and is intentionally continuing to be wrong all for the purpose of scaring people into doing what he wants. And the anti-gun media will play that part of his speech every 10 minutes to make sure it is heard enough times that everybody believes it to be true. That has been his MO the entire time he has been in office with everything he has wanted done.

    I noticed he did that speech in San Francisco, instead of a place like Dallas. I never cease to be amazed at the willingness of the people to ignore the fact more gun laws do not stop people from ILLEGALLY getting guns, as was the case in the Newtown shooting.

    I went to the gun store today to try and buy 9mm ammo. He just got his shipment in so it was no surprise that he had 2 boxes left and they went for $30 a pop to the guy in front of me.

    The people know what is up. If only I could get my hands on an unlimited supply of 9mm ammo I could sell the sith out of it...

    Obammy's orangutan wife pulled the same thing during a Chicago network interview .... the Chicago teenager, that got gunned down a week after her DC trip, mysteriously was gunnned down by one of those evil assault rifles ... not only wasn't it an assault rifle or a rifle at all .... it was a $50 POS revolver that had bounced around the streets for years ..... the network re-worked the interview and cut the little assault rifle slur ..... no so much for the slur or the totally wrong info ..... it made Her Majesty look like a horse's azz

    People always used to tell me I was crazy for reloading 9mm. They would say, "It's so cheap, and you can find it anywhere..."

    Boy was I stupid! (sarcasm)

    Does anyone know if it's even POSSIBLE to make a Bushmaster full auto?

    It requires machining of the Lower Receiver, and a change in the Bolt Carrier, I believe, as well as addition of the Select Fire Parts. Not an easy thing to accomplish by regular folks. One COULD just build a Complete Select Fire Lower, and Bolt Carrier, and then put on ANY AR-15 Upper that they have.....

    Surprisingly simple with the right machinery if you know how an auto sear works. However, it would be far easier to just use a bump stock...legalities and all, you know.
