A "clip" is a device used to load a magazine. The Garand has an internal magazine and uses a spring steel clip to load the magazine en bloc.

Did anyone see the debacle with Congressman Chafetz? It was more of the same "O'Reilly knows best and if you don't agree with me I'll shout you down" stuff. Chafetz knew exactly what he was talking about but Bill, as usual, didn't know how to be quiet and listen. I E-Mailed him but received no reply. In retrospect, I probably shouldn"t have told him to "shut the hell up". Bill, you are a pinhead, and you are wrong. An AK-47 is not considered "heavy armament", it is a light rifle.
