Not sure what difference it makes, the gun didn't commit the crime.

I thought the police could execute criminals?
Is that a question or a statement?
Depends on the situation and how you define "execute".

So far the only description we are getting is "high powered" which mean it wasn't a .22

Gun used in Highland Park shooting that left 6 dead and dozens injured was purchased legally in Illinois, authorities say


So what do you think it was? a 30.06 bolt action? An M1 Garand? and old M-14?
One could hear about 20 shots fired in rapid succession which would rule out the bolt action and probably the next one unless somebody had a magazine of that capacity.

It was most likely a civilian variety of an assault rifle. It's not likely anybody could slaughter Americans in that number with anything else. Especially that kid if it turns out he's guilty.

And then the '47' tatoo on his face??

Asking what rifle was used to kill six people is like asking what brand of knife was used in the mass killing of 19 in Japan. The tool is irrelevant. What was going on in his brain, is the real question.

Just wondering how the left will try to spin it as a need for gun control if it was a bolt action rifle.

As stated before, just wondering why they left hasn't been screaming assault rifle, and wondering how they will try to spin it if it was a bolt action rifle.

Considering the other noises going on, (fireworks)? that led to the confusion, and the fact he fired from a roof into a building lined street, any reports on shots are going to be sketchy at best.

Only the white ones. Then they call it "Self-inflicted wounds".

Oh....and a black guy who shoots from a vehicle at cops and is shot 60 times is an "unarmed black male".
He wasn’t armed when they shot him 60 times genius.
