Re: Misnamed

said by Mr_Otis :

Aren't all guns 'semi-automatic'? At least, all those that are not machine guns? Pull the trigger, gun fires. Pull the trigger, gun fires. Semi-automatic.

I believe a one shot musket would be semi-automatic as well considering you can reload it with powder, place the ball inside and fire it at a rate of about 1 shot every minute. So I guess no muskets are allowed to be displayed or pointed on TWC commercials either.

(Well maybe not considering the definition is b of a firearm : able to fire repeatedly but requiring release and another pressure of the trigger for each successive shot)

Not true. If the ONLY action needed to reload and shoot again is pulling the trigger then it's Semi-Automatic. If you have to do anything else between rounds then it's not Semi-Automatic.

I see what your mean. One shot every 60 seconds versus the 30 rounds Lanza fired off in 27 seconds.

Uh, well no, muskets aren't semi-automatic. And a good musket marksman can easily fire 3 shots in 1 minute.
