NBC: Weapons Used Were Legally Purchased And Registered To Gunman's Mother @ NBCNews : UPDATE: Weapons used in shooting were legally purchased and registered to gunman's mother, law enforcement officials tell NBC News
So, an intelligent but mentally disturbed youth, who plays video games where problem resolution is often violence, shoots his mother with her own legally purchased firearms and then goes on a rampage at a local school
so when a problem in real life is faced, make believe and reality is blurred
He uses two handguns in the shootings and a .223 rifle is found in the car
But .223 shell casings are found at the scene
1. he had another .223 rifle not yet found
2. he fired the rifle in the school and returned it to the car
3. he scattered empty casings around during the shooting to confuse us
4. the casings were from the swat team's .223 rifles
