Is anyone else skeptical of this "Machine gun" story?

    I heard this on the news this morning, and honest to God, they must have said "Machine gun" at least a dozen times!! I seriously doubt, like 99% sure, it wasn't a machine gun, hell, it may have even been a freaking airsoft POS! No shots were fired, just a butt to the head whack, but, let's sensationalize and parrot that phrase without doing any fact checking, because, that's the way of the new media!

    Yeah, I heard that too, and I'm thinking unless there is about 40 bullet holes in the side of the house in a tidy row, it wasn't a "machine gun".

    Some witness probably said it looked like a machinegun.
    All that means is that it was a paramilitary or tactical-looking gun, not a sporting firearm of the type Jimmy Carter or Frankin Roosevelt would have owned.

    In truth it was a 36" Louisville Slugger with a dark brown barrel. Great head bashers.
