Evidently not. 156 shots but only 26 dead. Had this been a REAL gun owner chances are the death rate and bullet count would have been closer. The OFFICIAL police report says he changed magazines before they were even empty, in fact many were over %50 full. Having ammo and a gun does not make a difference when an idiot is operating it. The high capacity magazines played NO part in the death toll being as they were changed BEFORE their capacity was used. Kind of like the other lie of yours about the theater shooting having to do with type gun and capacity. IT JAMMED on the third round and was discarded so any reference to an "ASSAULT WEAPON" being the reason for the death toll is a lie. Research has proven over and over that FULL AUTO and HIGH CAPACITY allows the shoot to fall into a dependence on high bullet count to take the place of marksmanship. That is the reason the military went to three round burst. Troops were "spray and pray" instead of taking aim. The kill ratio dropped, not increased, when full auto or high capacity was introduced. Another PROVEN lie from you.

A machete or sword could've done the same damage.
