MSNBC Reporter: Guns Used by Shooters Are What People Would Call Assault Weapons

‘These are what many people would call assault weapons and they sadly took 14 lives’

“We do understand a little bit of information from the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms authorities about the weapons that were taken. That there were four weapons, two of them were known as long guns. Those are rifles. One is an AR-15, and the other is known as M&P15. That’s from Smith & Wesson. It’s similar to the [AR-15]. M&P15 standing for military and police. So, these were, what many people would call, assault weapons and they sadly took 14 lives and injured 17 others, wounding them and some of those, five, I believe, are still in critical condition.”
