Cruz's AR-15 may have jammed with 10-Round Magazines

Postby High Power » Sat Mar 03, 2018 8:49 am

From the article:

Nikolas Cruz’s semiautomatic rifle may have jammed during the massacre at a high school in Parkland earlier this month, according to Miami Herald news partner CBS4.

Cruz then dropped the AR-15 and fled with other students, CBS4 reporter Jim DeFede tweeted Tuesday afternoon, citing three sources familiar with the investigation. Cruz still had 150 rounds of ammunition — meaning many more people could have died had he been able to keep firing.

A source not authorized to speak on the record confirmed to the Herald that Cruz struggled with his gun during the onslaught, either due to the weapon jamming or because he fumbled trying to reload it.


The “weapon and bullets were not high quality and were breaking apart,” one of the legislators, state Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, told the Herald.

Cruz went in with only 10-round magazines because larger clips would not fit in his duffel bag, Book said.


If Cruz’s rampage was stopped only because his gun jammed, the response of Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies will likely come under even more scrutiny.

If only those dangerous highly concealable 10 round magazines weren’t available this could have been avoided. 30+ magazines should be mandatory for rifles.

I am simply waiting for the hilarity of the anti's self-contradicting arguments, with this one.

If and when the story of the 10-round magazines gets to be well known, they will change their strategy, for sure.

Expect them to say, "well if he did that much damage with a malfunctioning weapon holding 10-round magazines, that's even more of a reason to ban all guns."
