Had child porn on his computer.


Interesting how they know and have focused on this.

Maybe they put it there. It's the only way to be sure.


My point wasn't related to the child porn. I quoted the post to make sure the link to the report from which I pulled the quotes, which you deleted in your post, was included in my post.

My comment was in reference to how they, the government and investigators, know which guns he purchased and when they were purchased since there isn't supposed to be a registry or list maintained. The only way it to track them down one by one using the serial numbers and tracing them from the manufatcturer through the retailer. Seems that would be very time consuming and when they were purchased does not seem all that important to me.

I'm more interested in knowing why he did it and who else, if anyone, was involved.

The fox news link is quoted in my post but whatever. At this point, I'm no longer convinced he did it.

Regardless what you are convinced of, you modified my post to make it appear I was referring to something I wasn't.

The investigators have access now to all his records and accounts. Unless he paid all cash and destroyed all receipts they'd only have to check his files. Heck, I made it real easy for them. Not only do I have everything in one folder labeled firearms, I've got a log book in my range bag.

So little information going to Huffington Post for this one.

Guy sold him the tracer ammunition. Box with his name and address on it found in the room.

I guess that little side hobby of being a gun dealer has its risks.
