    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?

    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.
