Breaking Gun News from CBS: The "Automatic Rounds" that the Vegas Killer Used Are Currently"Perfectly Legal"

Even Ace goes off on a tangent here, talking about how pistol rounds differ slightly in design between revolver and semi-auto. The guns Stephen Paddock used in Las Vegas were rifles (except for the pistol he used to kill himself). Rounds like the .308, 30-06, 5.56 NATO etc, can all be fired from single shot, bolt action, semi-automatic, or even in some cases fully automatic weapons. The round does nothing to determine whether the rifle is automatic or not. The feeding mechanism of the rifle determines that.

Apparently, MSM reporters are proud of their ignorance regarding weapons, because they keep making the same errors
