Funny thing is Holmes' clownishly large magazine jammed and probably prevented more deaths if anything. There's a reason the military only uses 20 or 30 round magazines. Bigger ones aren't really convenient, or worth the risk, since changing mags is a pretty trivial exercise anyway.
But the Do Somethingers had to hook onto something I guess.
