“The number one myth is these are machine guns. They’re not machine guns. They’re semi-auto, meaning I pull the trigger one time, I get one bullet,” said Jeff Serdy of AJI Sporting Goods near Phoenix.
Serdy is among those who claim the features that allow these guns to qualify as “assault” weapons have little to do with how deadly they are. They include “a telescoping stock, pistol grip, ability to accept a magazine, and a flash-hider.”
