A Geek With Guns points to yet another case of incorrect terminology about guns in the news. This time it doesn't seem to be the journalist's fault, but Mayor Daley's (Chicago, I presume) instead. It seems the Mayor is worried that his police may be out-gunned by people carrying "semi-fully-automatic" weapons.
At first I was sure that a semi-fully-automatic weapon couldn't exist. We all know about semi-automatic (one bullet per trigger pull, very common) and fully-automatic (fires until the trigger is released, very heavily regulated). But semi-fully-automatic firearms don't exist, right?
