@RUCB_Alum He stole it from his brother and modified it. Thank God no one was hurt/killed, but, if there were people shot/killed, the NRA would remain voluntarily deaf, dumb and blind to the idea of responsible gun ownership.

Where did he get the gun? Was it a legally obtained and owned weapon? Was it his own gun? Some reports describe it as an AK-47? Was it?
