Prayers up for the kids and families. No, I ain't using the perps name. Extended mag? Illegal in cali? Need stricter extended magazine laws? Marine with ptsd? Isn't there a redflag rule in cali? Hogg has not commented yet since it was 'merely' a pistol that was used. What if he had incapacitated the folks at the door and chained the doors shut and used gasoline to set it ablaze? Of course we'll hear the infringers shouting soon.

"Long modified its magazine"

Wonder what that means? Not sure how you'd modify a magazine to make it hold more rounds. You could buy an extended magazine or you could tape two magazines together butt to butt for a very quick reload but could easily be counterproductive with a pistol.

He looks like a wacko in the later photos with the beard, smiling, compared to the photos when he was a Marine.

Weld on some sheet metal, extended spring. Shucks, anybody can do it. Of course buying one at an evil NRA sponsored gun show and AR give away would be easier.

We don’t all survive, I mean THEY all don’t survive their military service well. Then again he could just be a regular nut bag who happened to have been in the Marines.

PTSD is not to blame.

This killer was just thug.

That’s all.

He was evil.

Most people, including these reporters are clueless. They do not realize that empty magazines are expendable, and are subsequently replaced by full magazines. Furthermore a mag change can be performed easily in under 1.5 seconds.

If this guy wasn’t already dead, I would make sure he was hanged in public after being convicted on his multiple murder counts.

For glocks, you can get a +2 adaptor.
However, they make an extended length adaptor for use in the KRISS weapons system. It doubles the magazine size.

Well, you’ve been denied that so you should sue someone.

>>In April, police and mental health specialists were called to Long’s home after a disturbance but they cleared him instead of having him committed<<

More incompetence from the “experts”

Oh my, and this was following the tragedy in Parkland in February that was committed by someone who also should have been institutionalized.
