    They really go for the sensational when reporting. I get so pissed when I hear them say "the shooter had a "sawed-off shotgun", or an "assault shotgun".

    So now are they going to want to ban shotguns with tubes that carry more than 3 rounds?

    When I think sawed off I think of the one Arnold used in terminator 2.

    Yea, most of us do initially. But in this circumstance, he did saw it off to fit it in the bag so technically-the media is correct.

    This is the backpack that Aaron Alexis left in the bathroom. So that's what he had the shotgun in.

    Okay, so was it less than a 16 inch barrel?

    Doesn't look like the barrel was illegally short, no. And aren't pistol-grips similar to that legal anyway?

    he used an 870 tactical.
    mine is an 870 tac. non butchered version.
    notice I put my tape measure in the same spot.
    the gun was legal
