The video clip shows how clueless Michael Bloomberg is. We may have known that, but it is entertaining to have him open his mouth and confirm it for us.

I don’t have the words to express my contempt for these people.
I am almost left breathless by his impassioned fascistic demand and not slighty wrong in describing what weapons are available to Americans but totally and completely wrong.
As in “Always wrong but....Never in Doubt”.
I have a family member, a liberal kook extraordinaire, who has said pretty much the same thing; he and Bloomberg must be getting their misguided anti-gun garbage from the same leftist media source.
M-16s have been cut back to a short 3 round burst, I believe H&K MP-5s also offer 2 & 3 shot burst mode as opposed to spray and pray mode. The short burst encourages accuracy and conserves ammo.
During the Rhodesian War, there was a shortage of ammo for the government troops so the generals ordered the troops to remove the auto sears form their FNFAL rifles. The result was a great reduction in ammo consumption, no increase in casualties, and no decrease in enemy body count.
Is Bloomberg indicating that people hunt deer with machine guns?
The idiot elitists banning something they know nothing about.

Bloomberg Blasts NRA: ‘Connecticut Is Because of Some of Their Actions’
But if he had his preference, Bloomberg said he would go farther than the 1994 ban and outlaw all automatic and semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines. The mayor said magazines shouldn’t be allowed to contain more than five or six rounds.
“If you haven’t hit the deer with three shots, you’re a pretty lousy shot. The deer deserves to get away,” he said....
When will someone ask him if he feels the same way about N. Y. Cops and their sidearms and the Swat teams Assault weapons. Should they all be issued one cartidge per weapon? If they don’t take out a bad guy with one shot should they be allowed to escape?
Bloomburg is a yammering idiot!
You are right as to the terminology as the Germans invented both the assault rifle (StG-43)and the machine pistol (MP-40) and based the distinction upon the cartridge size.
To the bloomingidiot, "bump fire" would look like and likely be called full auto as well, even though ATF doesn't go that far. I suppose I should not have brought that up as he'll want to ban that as well.
He must have learned about guns from Bill O'Reilly.
