Nikolas Cruz’s semiautomatic rifle may have jammed during the massacre at a high school in Parkland earlier this month, according to Miami Herald news partner CBS4.
Cruz then dropped the AR-15 and fled with other students, CBS4 reporter Jim DeFede tweeted Tuesday afternoon, citing three sources familiar with the investigation. Cruz still had 150 rounds of ammunition — meaning many more people could have died had he been able to keep firing…
So all those earlier reports that he had gotten training were BS. If he could not go through a simple malfunction drill, he was not trained.
Several state legislators who visited the school with crime-scene investigators said they learned from police that Cruz’s rifle was not top-of-the-line, perhaps explaining the malfunction.
The “weapon and bullets were not high quality and were breaking apart,” one of the legislators, state Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, told the Herald.
Cruz went in with only 10-round magazines because larger clips would not fit in his duffel bag, Book said.
If this is true then: 1) The investigators lied like shot to the State Senators. 150 rounds in 10 round mags is 15 magazines rattling around inside a duffle bag and normal 30 rounders do not occupy that much space. 2) So much for the ban of High Capacity Assault Magazine Clips.
PS: Who is investigating? Broward Sheriff’s Office? That is gonna be a trustworthy report, right.
