No, the police report still has not been released. So we do not know what weapons were actually used in the massacre, among many other things.
But one of the victims’ parents was given some as-yet-unreleased information about the tragedy by the police.

A while back, Ruger sent out an communication that offered a way to email each of your federal, state and local representatives with a message urging them to reject new gun laws. Just add your contact info and they did the rest. I did it, and so did a lot of the people I met in Hartford for the public hearing a few weeks back.
