From an hysterical and deluded Talking Points Memo :
Michele Bachmann Is In Love With The AR-15 Assault Rifle
Quite wrong moose breaths. An assault rifle is capable of fully automatic fire, from Wikipedia :
An assault rifle is a selective fire (selectable between semi-auto and fully automatic) rifle (capable of being fired from the shoulder) that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine. Assault rifles are the standard infantry weapons in most modern armies.
The AR-15 is semi-automatic weapon, or other words a rather fancy and very ugly varmint gun, again from Wikipedia :
The AR-15 is a lightweight, 5.56 mm, air-cooled, gas-operated, magazine-fed semi-automatic rifle, with a rotating-lock bolt, actuated by direct impingement gas operation. It is manufactured with the extensive use of aluminum alloys and synthetic materials.
Got it? An assault rifle is capable of fully automatic fire, that pull the trigger and more than one bullet will be fire. Whereas the AR-15 is a semi-automatic weapon. If you want to fire more that one round, you have to pull the trigger yet again.
Maybe I should go easy on TPM. After all George Soros likely only hired them because they were stupid.
Alan Colmes does even worst than TPM. He gets the model wrong, link :
