Rifles in Calif. shooting legal in state with strict laws
WASHINGTON - The military-style rifles used in the California shootings were legally purchased.
The FBI says authorities recovered two military-style rifles, two handguns and thousands of rounds of ammunition after the siege at a disability services center and a later shootout with police.
The two rifles were not specifically listed among models outlawed under California's tough gun laws. As long as both weapons included a cosmetic change affecting how bullets are loaded, they would have been legal in California.
The FBI says the suspected gunman, Syed Rizwan Farook, legally bought the handguns but someone else bought the rifles. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives earlier said all four guns were legally bought.
Farook and his wife were killed in a shootout with police.
