I wonder if it was just a semi or FA. My guess is the former.

Grousing over whether it is a clip or a magazine is like remaining insistent that blue jeans must always be called dungarees. These days are filled with issues of much greater import.

Not so. A clip and a magazine are two different items. You can load a magazine with a clip, but you can’t load a clip with a magazine.

Only brainwashed dolts confuse the two.

I bet he has a criminal record, precluding his legal gun ownership, too. Details, details.

Well you see the magazine only hols 30 rounds, but the weapon is capable of 160 RPM, The 30 round clip lasts about 2 seconds.
