The Connecticut gun store responsible for firearms used in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School is no longer licensed to sell after an ATF investigation. Riverview Gun Sales, where Nancy Lanza reportedly bought the Bushmaster rifle her son Adam used in his killing spree, was raided after the Newtown tragedy, but no details have been provided on the decision. The store's owner said after the shooting that he was "absolutely appalled" at his potential involvement and didn't remember the Lanzas specifically, but was cooperating with investigators. "It's been revoked," said an ATF spokesperson. "It's final at this point." It's not quite gun control, but the symbolism is something.
