Well, maybe that's a good thing?
The Reps support the internet security, but they won't support the gun control, while the Dems support the gun control, but won't support the internet security. Maybe the bill will die?

it could be a conspiracy.
or it could be that a schizophrenic had his 100 round mag jam, so he ejected it thinking it was empty, and replaced it with the standard 30 round one that he had on him. that didn't fire immediately, so he threw it down, drew his pistol, and opened fire again.
that seems to be the way i would imagine it went down. he fired off a bunch of rounds, and may have even been lucid enough to think, "It shouldn't be empty already". But it was dark, and he was in an intense moment, so likely shrugged it off and reached for the new mag. Pop that in, try to chamber it, find that the lever is jammed, so you throw it down and reach for the next gun, as per your plan.
Yup. Seems reasonable to me.
We need jobs, financial stability a growing economy and he has to try to pass a meaningless gun control measure that would do nothing to prevent another mass shooting.

This magazine issue is one of the reasons I have chosen the AKS as my rifle of choice. AK mags are always cheap. It's just too damn bad they're so heavy. :-(
