what part of smaller barrel and reflective cartridge material do you all not understand? lol

It is an assault rifle of some sort. It looks a hell of a lot like this to me:

Okay, I can see the resemblance in what I'm seeing and what you're seeing... But the giveaway to me is the longer handguard which I think I see in the video. The barrel also seems longer and smaller.

I have looked at it over and over again, and I am not saying that what it is.

That shell/bullet that came out just seemed too big to be a rifle bullet, especially ones that are fired from semi's.

The saiga 12 looks very similar to an assault type rifle.

Hopefully the real stuff will come out soon.

The grip actually connects all the way back to the butt along the bottom.

That would be consistent with a saiga from the assault weapons ban era.

The manufacturers were forced to connect the stock to the grip with a "thumbhole"

so that the stock couldnt be removed, reducing the length of the weapon.

p.s. saiga is basically an AK47 that is chambered for shotgun shells.

The parents weren't actually allowed to see their deceased children. The positive ID's were done with photo's and descriptions. Is that normal procedure?

I dont know if it's normal or not, but weren't some of the kids shot in the head? Disfigurements from head shots can be pretty gross. I'd imagine it was done to spare some grief.
