Standard magazine for an AR-15 type is 30 these days. Hasn’t been 20 in a very long time.

If Obama had a son he’d act like this guy. The only difference is this gunman has killed one or two innocent people while his “father” Obama is killing a whole nation.

While this comparison is one apples and oranges, the result is the same, lots of dead and wounded due to a demented mind.

Yeh and if some guy with a CCL popped a cap in him they will try to supress that news.

It was 20 rounds early on in the Vietnam war, but 30 round magazines were introduced fairly soon. It’s usually 30 now, although the Bolshevik states often limit capacity to 10. Here in the People’s Republic of New Jersey, it’s uniquely 15 rounds.

The gunman had been neutralized, Rhodes said, although he did not elaborate on what that meant. He said police are investigating whether there was a second shooter, based on witness reports.

“Maybe one of those V for Vendetta masks?”

When it started I was watching it break on twitter and those were exactly the type of masks they were saying he was wearing.

BTW: A lot of hype will be voiced about the AR-15, and why it should be banned. Totally forgotten will be the fact that any handgun could have accomplished the same thing here. So far it looks as if were going to find out it was one gunman who killed one person and them himself (providing it was a guy).

It’s a white guy. They’d have mentioned if it wasn’t.

OK, ok...but, it’s an interesting read.
I figure this is about the Second Amendment.

If that gun didn’t have people, none of this would have happened.

I hereby propose that we ban people.

I guess that is why there were reports of two shooters. Someone had a gun and shot the bad guy.

There's chatter on the police scanner regarding a CCL right now - hopefully referring to someone other than the perp.

and here;s the reason we need to ban guns now...

quote from local newspaper...
“The shooting rampage cut short the holiday atmosphere at the mall,”

THAT’s reason enough.

I had never heard of a 'V mask' so I did a search.
It's a Guy Fawkes mask popular with the OWS crowd.

A witness earlier also described him as wearing a white hockey mask, "like Jason in Friday the 13th". FWIW.

“Poor choice of camouflage. It is supposed to make you less noticeable. In a mall, I think anyone walking around dressed as a tree looks very out of place.”

Have you seen some of the women in Oregon? He probably blended in better than most would think.

It will be interesting to find out what kind of mask it really was. This could end up being a ‘big’ day for the left.

Man in camolfague and mask, rifle, and gun jams. Ambulances on ground.

Are those camolfague gun jams? Good to know that the ambulances are on the ground, of course.

“Assault weapon”panic will dominate media attention, followed by the obligatory condemnation by our dear leader Obambam, then to promote another AW Ban.

Oh yes it would have been Soooo much better if the shooter was using OO Buck in a home made sawed off shotgun. -sarc

I hope someone who was armed shot the bad guy. It sounds like the bad guy was a poor shooter if he got off 60 rounds before he was dead! He may have shot his own nasty self.

They obviously don’t see it like you do. I mean, if they were rational the killing and mass murder events would likely never occur. No?

I thought it was more like, “Here. Get this filled. You may feel strange for a few days, but then you’ll sink into a little better depression, where you’ll only want to kill five or less, instead of the usual 20-40.
