YOU SOUND LIKE A DAMN FOOL WHEN YOU SAY IT WRONG! | image tagged in young biff and old biff | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I'm also tired of hearing them called "automatic". The AR-15 is a semi-automatic rifle.

An automatic weapon fires multiple rounds with one depression of the trigger and continues firing as long as the trigger is depressed, or fires in multiple round bursts, and sets another round in the chamber when the firing is complete. A semi-automatic weapon fires a single round with one depression of the trigger and sets another round in the chamber.

Automatic also describes a gun that rechambers itself with every shot. The fact that the trigger needs to be pulled for each shot doesn't change much.

There's a difference between automatic fire and an automatic action. All self-loading actions are identified as "automatic".

Then you should know that an automatic action is different from an automatic fire mode.

A strawman argument is a rerepresentation of the opposition's argument created for the sake of more easily dismissing it. It's not in any way a strawman argument because none of my claims have anything to do with what you're talking about. Meanwhile, you're turning what I'M saying into "You're saying 'automatic', when it's SEMI automatic". THAT'S A F**KING STRAWMAN, because automatic actions and automatic fire are NOT THE SAME THING.

Also, way to talk about fallacies, WHEN YOUR ENTIRE CLAIM IS BASED ON EQUIVOCATION! You know, the fallacy of attributing a phrase to a specific definition, when there are other definitions applicable? The term "automatic weapon" can refer to both weapons that fire continuously AND weapons with an automatic action, which solely applies to how a gun is loaded.

Done with you now.

Also, YOUR pages support my position.

"Although both "semi automatic" and "fully automatic" firearms are "automatic" in the technical sense that the firearm automatically cycles between rounds with each trigger pull, the terms "automatic weapon" and "automatic firearm" are conventionally reserved by firearm enthusiasts to describe fully automatic firearms."

LITERALLY THE ENTIRE POINT

Name a difference between a semi-automatic action and an automatic action. You can't. I can: The former DOES NOT EXIST.

For anyone that's interested, I already refuted this person and this argument on the following meme's thread:

imgflip.com/i/15re5b

Please note that one of the mass-shootings I referenced was done with a .22 and another with a pump-action shotgun. One needn't have an "assault" rifle to kill people, nor does having a rifle with a pistol grip mean you're going to kill people.

Buying fireworks doesn't mean you're going to kill people. Buying a pressure cooker doesn't mean you're going to kill people. Buying a backpack doesn't mean you're going to kill people. Choosing to misuse those items kills people.

But at least it's not killing people. This statement is off-topic and has not invalidated my point in any way.

Throwing a basketball at a net has no practical... unless you're practicing.

Hitting a tennis ball at a wall has no practical... unless you're practicing.

Throwing a football at a hung up tire has no practical... unless you're practicing.

Foot-juggling a soccer ball has no practical... unless you're practicing.

Skeet shooting is practicing for hunting. And even if someone just does it for fun, SO WHAT??!?!?? Skeet shooting is done with a shotgun, not a rifle, let alone an "assault" rifle, which, if you'll recall, is the topic here.

If you don't have anything valid to add, then stop cluttering up my meme page.
