    They removed a Saiga 12 guage AK style shotgun which is manufactored by Izhmash with what appeared to be a 10 round surefire or promag magazine.

    The news reporters screwed it up as they did every detail in the first few hours attempting to get the body count on screen first.

    We know all you say is true, cause we learnt it on the interweb from experts with no experience. :wavey:

    I remember seeing the moon landing as it happened. Here's something to consider:

    The video was in black and white. How conveniently convenient to hide details they didn't want you to see.

    Also, I noticed the background was very similar to a particular patch of Libyan desert... Then the following year Libya became inaccessable to the rest of the world until this year (43 years later)...

    Oh please, there is a big difference between Armstrong telling you about the moon landing and Armstrong mooning you.

    I believe there are a lot of LEO that read and post here on GNG. I would like to ask them a question.

    Do you know of, or work with, fellow officers who use "slang/inaccurate" terms in police reports or other official documents?

    Describing a magazine as a "clip" is factually inaccurate and implies ignorance or contempt for their duty to accurately and precisely define said item(s) in the report.

    What if she bought it at a gun show from a private seller. Would there be a record? Have they released a record of where and how the other recovered guns were purchased? If not, is there some reason they should before the investigation is complete? Who all are in on this conspiracy that is bouncing around in your mind- the Reptilians or Bigfoot?

    because "assault rifles" are what they are attacking at the moment...not pistols or shotguns :wavey:

    they have to demonize one thing at a time to get the most effect.

    Maybe they are just using the term as defined in the expired Federal Assault Weapon ban where "high capacity" magazines were defined by law. Even though the law is no longer in affect it wouldn't be surprising for some non gun-expert law enforcement people to use that term

    "The Act also defined and banned 'large capacity ammunition feeding devices', which generally applied to magazines or other ammunition feeding devices with capacities of greater than a certain number of rounds, and that up to the time of the Act were considered normal or factory magazines. Media and popular culture referred to these as 'high capacity magazines or feeding devices'. Depending on the locality and type of firearm, the cutoff between a 'normal' capacity and 'high' capacity magazine was 3, 7, 10, 12, 15, or 20 rounds. The now defunct federal ban set the limit at 10 rounds."

    Parsing the meaning of these press releases where the intent of what they are releasing is obvious seems like a gigantic waste of time.

    In police reports it all depends on the context, but slang GENERALLY should not be used. Using a term such as "High Capacity" as a descriptor is an opinion, except in the case where "High Capacity" is defined by law or by nomenclature pertaining to the weapon at hand. And the use of the term "clip" is obviously just a misunderstanding of what a clip is, as opposed to a removable magazine. This should have been caught and corrected by a supervisor before official release. "Clips" in the plural opens up a can of worms on it's own. It could be surmised that they have a specific reason for using the plural without revealing how many there were.

    The average American Woman has 2.36 children. If a woman had 4 children does she have a High Capacity Uterus?

    Like the guy said, every thirty seconds a woman gives birth in NYC.

    Only thing is, she doesn't seem like the type of person who would do a private purchase. She was a single/divorced woman who didn't have money issues. So if she bought something, she would be someone who wanted a warranty to back up her purchase.

    Whether she bought a car, a TV, a toaster or a gun, it would be through a dealer, so there would be a warranty attached.
