At least the shooter is not suspected of using an assault rifle - those things are probably illegal in California, so legislation obviously works to prevent monstrous acts of violence

    They are regulated to an extreme but if it was an illegal AW they will pass more restrictions and say the perp was a victim of society.

    Since they couldn’t say he used an “assault rifle” the local LE is now coining a new term.  He used an “assault pistol” with a high capacity magazine.  

    It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎

    I heard the same.

    Not sure how you modify a high cap magazine.

    They're saying it was a Cobray M11 (think a semiauto Mac-10) with an extended magazine in the 30 rd. capacity range.  It's all illegal in CA, so.... 
    I'm just here for snark.

    Heck, you want doublespeak?  A couple weeks ago, we had a deputy sheriff murdered on a traffic stop by a creature that could accurately be called a "twelve striker".  Governor Gavin's response to this current shooting is "You got to enforce laws".

    Ummm. . .sure.
