I am tempted to say "so what?" about this news story. This is about as relevant as a news story that said something like the following:
Police have revealed today that last night's drunk driver was driving an automobile manufactured by the same company that sold a car to the driver of last month's horrific tragedy. More at 11:00.
Accessories? He bought accessories? What, like maybe a holster? An extra magazine? A gunbelt? Shooting glasses and earmuffs?
Journalism, don't you love it?
