    commisssion investigation allegedly concludes armed staffer could've stopped Cruz

    CASE CLOSED: Head of commission investigating Parkland shooting says armed staffer could have stopped Nikolas Cruz



    I say allegedly because I don't know this source and the 6 round magazine quote sounds strange

    Via Miami-based Patricia Mazzei, New York Times, quoting Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri who is heading the commission investigating the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Fla.

    Nikolas Cruz had to reload “several times”:
    Sheriff Bob Gualtieri of Pinellas County, head of Florida's state-appointed commission investigating the Parkland shooting, said today that video from inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School showed the gunman, Nikolas Cruz, had to reload his AR-15 assault rifle several times.

    According to Sheriff Gualtieri, the rifle only had a 6-shot magazine (17 were killed and 17 more wounded in the attack):
    "There were several other times when he was in that school that his gun was empty," the sheriff said, noting that the rifle had a six-round magazine. A reload break allowed a teacher on the third floor of the freshman building to move students away to safety, he said.

    "If he had somebody in there with a gun, they could have mitigated this," the sheriff said. "There were opportunities for staff to have intervened if they had been armed."

    I think the school would have been better served with an armed and trained staffer with skin in the game than a Broward deputy in a 'rocking chair' job.

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    So they had a commision to tell them that it's bright outside in daylight and dark outside at night.

    6 round magazine is a gun ignorant individual being told the gun had 6 rounds in it, not knowing that meant the 5 round magazine and the one in the chamber and mis-identifying it as a 6 round magazine

    There's been many reports that he had multiple 10 round magazines. He didn't get larger ones because they didn't fit in his backpack.

    Definition of clip

    2: a device to hold cartridges for charging the magazines of some rifles; also : a magazine from which ammunition is fed into the chamber of a firearm.

    There's the solution to the mass shooting problem right there......limit the size of back packs and pockets.

    School Resource Officer is probably not a job for the "best and brightest" in the department.
    I expect it is an armchair job for those close to retirement. Worst they expect to have to deal
    with is a student fight or someone found with drugs.

    All the Best,
