At the March 6 Democratic presidential debate, Hillary Clinton inaccurately described firearms. During remarks about mass killings such as the tragedy at the Sandy Hook elementary school, she described the AR15 rifle as an automatic weapon.

As a matter of record, the weapon used by the deranged Adam Lanza to murder 6 adults and 20 children in Newtown CT was a actually a fully legal and semi-automatic .223-caliber XM15-E2S rifle manufactured by Bushmaster International. He also had two pistols, neither of which he used during the 2012 incident.
