  1. Yep. That’s a gun.

    At least it’s not identifiably an M1 Carbine that the cops identify as an AK-47, like in the Digest last night.

  2. So, within minutes they release pictures from LAX, but we’re about to hit the 1-year anniversary of Sandy Hook, and still no pictures from that…

    • They won’t release sandy hook pics for a reason!! We don’t need to see them, we should just trust them in whatever they say!!!

      • Say what you really think. You think those children didn`t die? I have heard some conspiracy theories on this site but come on.

      • That photo of the rifle is from a private person who posted it on twitter. That’s why we have access to it and not the carnage of Sandy Hook. But if seeing the brain matter of 7 year olds splattered on desks, I’m sure if you really look for it you’ll get your rocks off somewhere.

    • I don’t think this is a “released” official photo – looks like it’s some cell phone pic from somebody who was in the terminal and tweeted it.

    • Oh boy. I agree. If you expand the photo it looks an awful lot like an AR-15 with a carbine length gas system and a PMAG next to it.

      Cue the outrage in 4,3,2…

    • We HAVE to start calling bullshit as loudly as possible on this. It is NOT NEWS that the gun that is most numerous is used in crime. That’s why S&W 10 was the most common gun in crime for so long. Still is? Can’t remember.

      It’s numbers. It’s real easy, if someone fails to see it, then they are being obtuse or hypocritical on purpose at that point.

    • That can’t possibly be. That type of weapon is banned in California, and laws prohibiting items or actions prevent those things from existing or taking place. That’s also why there’s no gun crime at all in Chicago, and wasn’t any in DC until after the Heller decision.

  3. Can’t tell on phone but you can bet your ass it will be a “god awful terroristic assault weapon” by 5pm!!
    Our prayers for those that are injured etc but just wonder about another Anti Gun push!!! Too convienient again??

    • I think it depends on the facility and the jurisdiction. At least in MI, most airports I’ve been to are not gun-free outside the TSA-controlled security zones–you may not pass through a security checkpoint with a weapon.

      California, on the other hand…

  4. If you’re reading this in California, better drop what you’re doing and head to the nearest gun store,and with a sense of urgency.
    As the good Book says, dont even grab your coat off the chair.Just go….now.

  5. I notice SWAT made a cameo appearance at the bottom of the picture. Too bad they had something to do this time.

    Has anyone else noticed a distinct increase in reporting of shootings by the MSM lately?

      • So a TSA agent used a TSA gun to shoot people at LAX?

        That’s fucked up. Not surprising, but still fucked up.

        Who will save us from our saviors?

        • I have seen nothing whatsoever (besides rank speculation) to indicate it was a TSA gun. And so far, the only person confirmed shot was another TSA agent. There are reports of other injuries, but also reports that some of those injuries may have occurred in the rush to get away.

        • TSA aren’t armed (nor are they issued handcuffs). When they need armed backup, they call for Customs Agents or Airport Police.

  6. AR or Mini 14, either way fienslime considers it an assault weapon and its not CA legal. Cue MSM sh1tstorm and executive branch push for more gun control in 3..2..1..

    • No, you are wrong. Mini-14’s a certainly CA-legal, as long as they lack the “evil features” such as a pistol grip

      AR-15’s are in every gunstore in CA. Either featureless or with bullet buttons. Not hard to mod. So even if this configuration were illegal, the Mini-14, and AR-15’s in general are not banned

  7. Definitely not a .22. the mag is lying there next to the gun. Mini-14s are actually legal in California with the standard stock. This gun has an evil feature–a pistol grip.

  8. GET READY FOR MORE GUN CONTROL FLAGS BEING WAVED!!!!

    I thought California was a gun free paradise?
    This is more proof that criminals and maniacs don’t care about gun-free zones and gun-control laws.

  9. No gun control mileage here. He didn’t rack up a body count because there was a good guy with a gun there. The only reason that this is a story is that it happened at an airport.

    • That’s definitely just outside of a boarding gate, well past the security checkpoint. That guy got a rifle past security. And yesterday they were talking on the radio about how many firearms have been seized in south Florida airports this year…

        • LAX doesn’t have carpet installed outside of the security screeners. Definitely in a boarding gate area.

      • They’re pretty clear on this. Checkpoint cleared out completely when the shooter opened fire, and he just walked right through it.

    • yep.

      I posted on another forum that, if you were able to skip past the TSA screening gate, it would take probably 30 seconds to walk in the front doors of LAX, up the escalators, and into the gate seating area of terminal 3.

      ironically, I was sitting in that same general area just outside of the security gate in LAX, returning from a work trip on the day Sandy Hook happened. probably sat on some of those rows of chairs, watching the retarded MSM news coverage.

  10. That’s a Mini 14. It’s not an AR cause the barrel doesn’t have the shoulder thing that goes up. Stock is a basic sliding AR-type. Pretty sure it’s not an M1 on account of the stock and the magazine.

  11. Looks like a modded ruger mini 14 to me. If I squint I can perhaps see the characteristic tapered barrel.

    I was looking at one as the only viable .223 fun gun allowable in NY state these days. I better move quick.

  12. Looks like a military-style trench warfare capable of spraying bullets thing that goes up evil black police-style magazine-clip assault automatic rifle to me.

  13. Not to tin-foil hattery or anything, but weren’t they talking about making TSA agents Federale police, well they’ve got it now.

  14. These incidents will always be a part of life regardless of laws, regulations, or the usurping of rights. Problem is this is the fuel that drives the grabbers train. No one cares if 30,000,000 people act responsibly, but the acts of an immeasurably small percentage of the population is enough to strip the entire country of the right of self preservation. Anti gun spin is going into overdrive.

    • The problem is you’re talking to sensible, knowledgeable people. The Presstitute Media has the ear of Mr. and Ms. Amerika.

  15. Honestly, looks like a varmint-type AR to me, with the unadorned tubular free-float handguard, and a funky fixed stock that’s not an A2-style.

    • Is calling every gun longer than a pistol an “AK-47” out of style now?

      How did the AR-15, the semiautomatic version of the M16, become the new “bad gun?”
      Now we have “AR-15 shotguns.”

      “It could have been a single shot 410 shotgun…”
      That’s an “AR-15 single shot .410 shotgun.”
      Used to be an “AK-47 single shot .410 shotgun.”
      “AR-15” must be American for “AK-47.” Calling every crime gun an “AK-47” is racist as it is Russian.

  16. Does it really matter what kind of gun it is? In the media, it’s an AR-15, period. These are the same idiots that call an M1 Carbine an AK-47, and to whom every handgun is a Glock.

  17. Looks like a Ruger Ranch Rifle (Mini 14) with Tapco adjustable M4 stock and Pro-Mag polymer 30rd magazines.

  18. Who cares what it was, this is what the media wanted, a gun control flag to wave to get the sheeps minds off Obamacare and all the other scandals. It could have been a single shot 410 shotgun and Piers MorGOON would be raving about guns. I fully suspect Obamas media minions have been told to change the topic back to gun control at the first opportunity.

  19. Looks like a Ruger mini-14 with a custom stock, not an AR-15 as the Progressive Liberal media has been reporting,
