    So far, here's what I've heard on the news: The shooters had full auto, high power, AK47's chambered in .222 that were legal in CA except the clips that didn't have buttons.

    Oh, and the pistols were police style Smith & Wesson!

    I read their weapons were legally purchased.

    I thought it was illigal in Cali to own semi auto rifles without a bullet button? and full capacity mags?

    did any of the sources mention them illegally modifying the bullet buttons?

    They (repo
    Button mag release is a drop in part, easily replaced and of course standard capacity magazines aren't that hard to get. It's been reported that the rifles were purchased legally. If only murder was illegal.

    It's easy to take away a mans life jacket when he's having a good time out fishing on the boat.

    But just try taking it away when he's drowning out in the river!;)

    According to the NY Times:
    Four guns were recovered: a Smith & Wesson M&P assault rifle, a DPMS Panther Arms assault rifle, a Smith & Wesson handgun and a Llama handgun.

    Here's a link to the article: How They Got Their Guns

    Before shooting
    "All four guns were bought legally, the two handguns by Mr. Farook and the two assault rifles by someone who is not a suspect, authorities said. The Los Angeles Times reported that the handguns were bought at Annie’s Get Your Gun, a gun store in Corona, Calif."

    OK sooo, he borrowed two California illegal ARs from someone who is not a suspect ?.................:confused:

    I'm really getting sick and tired of their use of the term "assault rifle" :mad:

    Seems the only thing these ba$tards know how to do is use false terms, twist facts and use name calling against anyone that doesn't support their side.

    This morning they were talking about semi-auto. One press of the trigger fires one round. Apparently you can buy a button that you can activate with a bullet to turn it into an assault rifle full auto.

    Check out this article.....

    Rifles Used in San Bernardino Shooting Illegal Under State Law
    Weapons were legally purchased with magazine locking devices but altered to make them more powerful, ATF finds

    Wow, who knew that by disabling a bullet button it made the rifle more powerful. I've still got a bullet button from when I was stationed behind enemy lines, I'm going to "alter" it to make my AR a super powerful lethal killing machine.:s0048:

    What? Really? This quote was made by someone who should know at least something about guns. I guess that's why she's called "a special agent":s0125:.

    There's more, but I don't want ot make this post go on forever.

    I have to think that as much as the MSM focuses on the guns and gun laws, they would know a thing or two about oh I don't know, guns and gun laws?

    It couldn't be that they are deliberately manipulating low info voters could it?:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    This is what I meant with my reply... it seemed obvious to me but I didnt have a source. It seems to have been conveniently overlooked by the media and of course the anti gunners...

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/2015/1...ernardino-shooting-were-illegal-in-california

    the rifles were modified by illegally removing the bullet button, using/possessing large capacity magazines (illegal in Cali), and modified for full auto fire. There is also the potential of a straw purchase here but its not clear....

    Has anyone (like law enforcement) actually said the rifles were modified to shoot full auto? Or was the only Mod to allow quicker magazine changes? And can't you stuff a 30 or 40 rd mag in a rifle with a Bullet Button in place?
