    I agree, but that would probably cause Fox News to lose 90% of it's reporting staff

    Lazy... or biased. Why bother making the distinction between auto/semi-auto when 'automatic' sounds that much scarier?

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    I try to give them the benefit of the doubt, even though they really don't deserve it when it comes to firearms.

    The ABC story mentions an AK-47 (apparently "confirmed" by police) and that students heard "bursts of gunfire" - so (alhtough unlikely), still a possibility that the weapon was automatic.
