This the Reason journalists with little or no understanding of firearms shouldn’t be talking about weapons. Seems the inventory sheet from Adam Lanza’s home had the following:
Exhibit #612 – One (1) holiday card containing a Bank of America check #462 made out to Adam Lanza for the purchase of a C183 (Firearm), authored by Nancy Lanza. Source The Lookout – Yahoo! News.
One would assume that a Point and Shoot C183 was a firearm, but if one were to do a little research, one would find that a C183 is a Kodak Point and Shoot Camera (cost $149.00) . Maybe the parentheses should have contained the word ‘Camera’ instead.
The only weapon that could remotely be the one specified is a CZ-83 .380 semi-automatic pistol which costs about $406.00
We are wondering how much that Bank America check #462 was made out for. Was it $150 or more like $410?
On a side note, since the NRA has been demonized as culpable in this mass shooting, let us point out that the Lanza Family is NOT associated in any way with the NRA.
We are not the only one questioning the C183 (Firearm) issue
What the hell is a C183? I’ve never heard of a firearm by this model. It is a 14 megapixel camera. Did some ignorant journalist see C183 and just assume it was a gun? Who determined a C183 is a gun? I’ve never heard of any gun by this model name, and it’s possible there is one I don’t know about, but it is definitely also a point and shoot made by Kodak.
