A loaded 12-gauge shotgun was found in the Honda Civic Lanza drove to the school with two magazines containing 70 rounds of Winchester 12-gauge shotgun rounds.Really? Two magazines containing 70 rounds of 12 gauge shotgun ammo? I've been playing with shotguns for a long time, but I've never seen a 35 round shotgun magazine. That thing must weigh several pounds and stick out the bottom of the shotgun for a pretty good distance.
Okay, so evidently the AP is correcting this article on the fly. According to my buddies at this forum, the article originally said this:
A loaded 12-gauge shotgun was found in the glove compartment of the Honda Civic Lanza drove to the school with two magazines containing 70 rounds of Winchester 12-gauge shotgun rounds.Uuuh, yeah! I've got kids who drive Honda Civics, and I don't believe that a shotgun will fit in the glove compartment. Especially a shotgun with a 35 round magazine. That would be quite a glove compartment.
All those layers of editors and fact-checkers at the Associated Press are doing one hell of a job. Perhaps they'd do better if they actually knew whatthehell they were talking about.
