CNN Report Invents New Term: 'Full Semi-Automatic' AR-15s. Gun Experts Respond.

Gun aficionados are calling foul on a CNN report in which its gun specialist used the misleading term “full semi-automatic” when describing an AR-15.

The moment took place during a CNN report presented as “An Up-Close Look at the AR-15,” which involves retired Lieutenant General Mark Hertling, someone who does not believe the AR-15 should be banned.

However, at one point in his demonstration of how the gun operates, Lt. Hertling says he is going to use the gun in “full semi-automatic” mode. CNN follows his statement by stating that the AR-15 is “a weapon designed to inflict maximum damage.”

As highlighted by Twitchy, pro-Second Amendment advocates, including NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, responded to the segment by noting that there’s no such thing as “full semi-automatic.” Hertling apparently just meant “pulling the trigger as fast as you can.”

Not only is CNN making up news, but now they are making up new terms to push the Democrats agenda.
