And then blame the media for (correctly) later saying that the Bushmaster rifle was the one used in killings, as if the truth is some attack on gun rights. This video has been circulating among those on the right as "late breaking news from MSNBC", doing their best to conceal the fact it's long-since disproven news. So much so that the Connecticut State Police had to put out a press release last week ( ) clarifying just what weapons were used. This letter is a parody of the truth and frankly embarrassing that The Gazette would print it without such a disclaimer.
