Never in my life have I seen a 30 round clip. I've seen 5 and 8 round clips. In fact, a 30 round clip would serve no functional purpose whatsoever on something like the AR-15 platform.
The AR-15 utilizes a box magazine, and while ammunition is sometimes packaged onto 30 round stripper clips, these only serve to assist in rapid reloading of the box magazine with an associated and essential loading tool.
Our illustrious MSM and other experts need to get their terms AND facts straight. :-)

I assumed the written descriptoin was directly quoted from the CT State Police report, not journalist’ rendition to make the d^mb@ss general public understand technical jargon?
