    Glaring loophole in St. John's rifle incident

    The Eyewitness News Investigators make a startling discovery. The rifle police say the gunman at St. John's University was carrying is not considered to be a firearm under federal or state law. ...

    The St. John's student who threw an entire college campus into a panic knew for several months he wanted to buy a gun -- and he knew he wanted to buy it in Upstate New York . . .

    SO . . .

    Sort of undermines some of the arguments they have been making.
