According to the latest BBC report the gunman was a 64 year old local resident. Sounds more likely to be a home grown nutter than anything else.

"Automatic weapon(s) like that -- had to be numbers of magazines or a very large drum, it sounded to me like a belt-fed weapon, a military-style weapon and then to be shooting down, to use the analogy, it was like shooting fish in a barrel in that space," Gagliano said.

My heart goes out to all the victims. This is gonna bring out the anti-gun nuts. When will they realize that it is not the gun but the shooter that causes these atrocities.

Well perhaps the fact that the shooter had access to a gun had just a bit to do with over 50 innocent people being dead.

Most Americans don't want to accept that concept.

Remember people kill people, not guns Why a knife could have killed and injured just as many, from the 33rd floor as a rifle.

How can CNN know that this person has knowledge of the case ?

CNN has presented a lot of people with knowledge of the case and a lot of them had no knowledge of the case or did not exist :CNN is good in inventing people with knowledge of the case .

And the man of whom CNN claims that he has knowledge of the case ,said that there was no known link to overseas terrorism .

Maybe there was an unknown link ? It could be that the knowledge of the man was lacking .

Or maybe there was a known link to domestic terrorism ?

Conclusion : what one can expect from CNN : meaningless twaddle .
