Report: Parkland Shooter Did Not Use High-Capacity Magazines

The gunman used only 10-round magazines.
The Parkland shooter did not use magazines larger than 10 rounds, but gun-reform lobbyists are calling on lawmakers to ban higher-capacity magazines after the Valentine’s Day tragedy.
The 19-year-old school shooter who killed 17 in Florida on Valentine’s Day had 150 rounds of ammunition in 10-round magazines. Larger ones would not fit in his bag, Florida state senator Lauren Book revealed.

After his gun jammed, the shooter threw it away and successfully blended into a crowd of students trying to escape the building, according to three sources close to the investigation.

Critics of high-capacity magazines have said the gun jamming is a reason to ban large magazines because a jam would have stopped the shooting if the gunman had used long rounds of ammunition where he did not have to reload. The Parkland shooter used only smaller magazines, however.

Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) hinted at a CNN town hall last week that the weapon may have malfunctioned, saying “three or four people may be alive today” because of something that happened during the shooting. Rubio has reconsidered his stance on whether high-capacity magazines should remain legal after the shooting, even though they are not what the young gunman used.

Then he’s not only a psychopath. He’s a stupid psychopath 

Expect the 10 rd magazines to come under scrutiny for being inexpensive and easily concealed.

Yep.

This is an argument against 10 rd mags for the gun control crowd.

They will be called "school shooter specials" from now on.

High Capacity Full Auto Clip that fires 50 bullets a second.

Sogsteel - High Capacity Full Auto Clip that fires 50 bullets a second.

At that rate they’ll use up all the high capacity machine gun murder clips and the problem will solve itself.  

"Once they are used up they cant be used anymore"....some retarded politician. ..maybe these were those massacre Magazine clips?

Those clips are definitely FULLY semi-automatic. And fire 1000 magazines per second.  

That second last paragraph is amazing. I can't figure out what the author is trying to say. Makes no sense to me. Does she get paid to write?

How dare you.

An untrained shooter can kill an entire room of people in a matter of seconds with an assault weapon with all of the fixings. God help you if it has that little stick to hold onto at the front or worse, if it's colored black.

Saw a headline today that a kid planning a school shooting instead committed suicide. I suggest a national campaign of “encouragement”. Encourage anyone thinking of shooting up their school or workplace to kill themselves instead. If the media committed to this as much as gun control it would definitely make kids”safer”. 

No dumber than Paddock using "bump stocks"

PoiuPoiu - bullets should cost $1000 each

Dont give them any ideas

That makes sense.
