    And some people wonder why a person would ever want a gun that holds more than ten rounds.

    aspenstreet1717, where the couple was killed is correct. The word couple is singular meaning one couple. If you were to state where the two or where they, then you would use were.

    Should it not be 'where couple were killed'.??

    It's never old news when people are shot...especially by 15 and 16 year olds!!!! The more attention that is placed on these types of situations, the more that everyone will be forced to evaluate these tragedies which are happening day after day.

    No, sorry "reel4fun" or whatever, an actual assault rifle was recovered in another arrest and linked to these murders - keep up... No vast left wing conspiracy here, just the facts...

    This has to be drug related.

    Generally speaking the shell casings and bullet fragments would give a good indication of what kind of weapon was used even if none was found at the scene. Although I think calling one semi-auto rifle a weapon of mass desruction only serves to vilify the gun, I believe the rifle that was recovered in the girlfriends home had the serial numbers destroyed which would most likely mean it was stolen and certainly not registered. To my knowledge currently, you do not have to register a long rifle unless it is a class 3 fully auto, but it is illegal to remove serial numbers.

    @reel4fun

    In this case Gemby Itzamar Estrada was arrested and charged with possession of a weapon of mass destruction. This is generally the charge one receives for an unregistered SBR or fully automatic machine gun. That gun was matched to this case. In this case I think a real assault rifle was actual used.

    Really.... no weapon was found but they say it was an assault weapon.....way to promote your vision WRAL.....with untruths and fear.
