    No, no, no. A semi-automatic AR-15 is NOT an “assault rifle”, nor is any other semi-auto-only firearm. By definition, an “assault rifle” is a battle rifle capable of being switched between semi-auto and full-auto/burst modes, and the AR-15 has no such capability.

    How many times does the mainstream media need to be corrected on this and similar misuses of terminology before it starts displaying respect for factually for honest and accurate reporting?
