There is a lot of misunderstanding about assault rifles, semi-automatic, fully automatic, etc.
A fully automatic rifle will fire all of the ammunition in a magazine as you hold the trigger. This gun cannot be purchased except by police and military. It cannot be used as a hunting rifle by state law in all states.
A semi-automatic “assault rifle” is called that, but it is identical to a typical hunting rifle except in appearance. The stock has been altered to make it look military.
