Please redact your statement of “high powered assault rifle casings.” That is false and misleading. How about you report only facts. As every caliber that can be fired out of what the media calls an “assault rifle” can be fired out of everything from single shot rifles to bolt action rifles. Therefore, without ballistics matching it to a specific gun, you care not publishing facts when you assume the type of gun said casings were fired from. Quit publishing your anti gun agenda, or is it that you do not want to do proper reporting and actually do some investigating and would rather show how naive or uneducated you care on the subject you report. So what caliber were they? Common caliber for the modern sporting rifle known as an AR-15 (AR does NOT mean assault rifle, it stands for Armalight Rifle-15) is .223/5.56mm which is not a high powered cartridge.
