Court Documents: Oregon Gunman Stole His AR-15

Court Documents: Oregon Gunman Stole His AR-15

Court documents relating to the June 10 murder/suicide at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Oregon, show the gunman stole the AR-15 he used to commit the crime.

According to Reuters, 15-year-old gunman Jared Padgett “stole the rifle he used…from his brother.”

He also had a handgun which he had stolen. 

Troutdale Police Chief Scott Anderson said Padgett “had obtained weapons from home and that they were secured,” but “he defeated the security measures.”

President Obama and Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) called for the passage of expanded background checks in the wake of the heinous crime at Reynolds High School. But background checks do not stop thieves.
