emptied his automatic clip containing multiple rounds.
Your right. Clips are not automatic. That’s what magazines are for, too contain more then one round.
How do you spell ¿ imbecile ?
Did he have to KILL him?
When looking down the barrel of a gun, it’s better to kill him before he kills you. Dead crooks can’t fire back.
No surprise. Detroit “news” reporters arents the smartest bunch. Once, I saw one newsbabe telling us we’d all die if we stayed outside in the cold. She pointed to the bank thermometer that read -3. The idiot didn’t know what the C meant. I saw this after shoevling snow for three hours then going for a bike ride.
Another breathlessly read the license number of the suspect vehicle and repeated the description several times. A blue Bonneville, Pontiac. A blue Bonneville, Pontiac.
Idiot, you’re in Motown, you should at least know the car brands.
” so it isn’t too likely that 20,001 would do so either”
But with 1 CCW law he has assumed room temp and will bother no one anymore.
BTW, I'm totally ignorant on a "clip" versus "magazine". Please help me.
Firearm terminology can be quite confusing. Let’s go back to bows and arrows!;)
You don’t need a law for CCW, e.g. Vermont. Laws are (usually) about what you can’t do. It is a pity, though, that most states view CCW as a privilege and not a right, which is why you need to ask the government for permission, and pay a fee, to do it. But not in Vermont and also now a handful of other states.
Thanks for posting. My wife was working a couple of blocks away from that.
You are welcome. The more information out, the better.
I’ll bet a buck that the guy in the chair was a military veteran. Just a hunch.
This picture shows a detachable rifle magazine on the left and a Stripper Clip on the right
The stripper clip is used to refill the magazine in a rapid manner by placing the one end of stripper clip in mouth of the magazine and pressing down with the thumb on the rounds forcing them in to the magazine.
The emptied stripper clip is then removed from the magazine. The magazine is then ready to load in to the rifle.
Generally speaking a Magazine is a storage place for ammunition. The term is very old and has it origins in the days of fortifications and wooden war ships.
LOL!! I just read that the guy who reported this story was replying to the people on the message boards for that site about the clip/magazine thing:

To kteaton, Thank you for your response but I did not “adamantly” state clip is the correct term. As I wrote in the post, clip is the word used both by the the man in the barber shop and the police investigating. (I interviwed both on-scene off-camera.) If they (police & shooter) say he emptied his clip should I correct them at the shooting scene and say, “I’m sorry you actually emptied your magazine.” Same thing for “auto”, it’s the common term that was used on scene by Detroit Police and the man in the barber shop. Yes I understand the distinction of semi-auto and full-auto. As I wrote “clearly we are not discussing a full auto, Tommy Gun, etc.” Thanks for watching and thanks for your followup interest.

I would like to have been there to see the reporter correct a cop on his use of firearm nomenclature.
But he is correct the term clip is commonly misused.
