I wish both of them could get their facts straight.
The AR 17, AK47 and other semi automatic rifles legally sold in the US today ARE NOT CLASSIFIED AS ASSAULT RIFLES.
To be an assault weapon, it would have to be classified as a FULLY AUTOMATIC gun, pull the trigger and it does not stop shooting till the thing is empty.
Just because it resembles the military weapon, which can fire semi automatic (one pull of the trigger, one bullet) short burst (one pull, three bullets) or full auto (one pull and continues till empty)
Other wise we would have assault water guns, assault paint ball guns, assault BB guns.
Pierce Morgan is stupid, as most of the left is.
