AIKEN, S.C. -- South Carolina officials say a 10-year-old trick-or-treater pulled a handgun on a woman who joked that she'd steal his Halloween candy.

The Augusta Chronicle reported Tuesday ( http://bit.ly/sCv0B7) a 28-year-old woman told authorities she recognized some youngsters Monday evening and she joked she'd take their candy.

Aiken Public Safety Lt. David Turno says a 10-year-old in the group said "no" and pointed the handgun at her.

Turno says the gun wasn't loaded but the boy had a clip of ammunition. He was taken to the police station and was turned over to his parents.

Turno said the boy's brother, who is also 10, told officials he also had a gun and both weapons were recovered by police. Turno says the boys got them from their grandfather without his permission.

Seems like an awfully bulky piece for a 10 year old to be concealing, but I don't know what his costume was.

Fucking stupid reporters need to learn the difference between a clip and a magazine. Good call, gleet.

Enough with the gun snobbery, I've seen magazines referred to as clips in American Rifleman. Let's just accept it.

Coming from the same media that advocates the banning of "barrel shrouds" and numerous other things, despite not knowing what the fuck they are. And you're expecting them to know the difference between a clip and magazine?

Please post a link to the Rifleman writing that and I will believe you.

Sorry, but I have to ask... in a hand gun, just what is the difference between a clip and a magazine?

Clip:



Magazine:



It's not as important as it used to be, but there's a very real difference.

And I guess you could consider a speed-loader also a clip:



But you call it a speed-loader, so it'd be pointless to make the distinction.
