CBS made up a bogus term to describe the ammunition that was used by the Las Vegas shooter during the rampage – calling the ammunition he used “automatic rounds.”
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) confirmed to the Daily Wire that there is no such thing as “automatic rounds,” which contradicts CBS’s claim about ATF rules.
CBS tweeted a link to their report, saying, “While the guns Stephen Paddock used in Las Vegas fired automatic rounds, they were perfectly legal under ATF rules.”
“Yet while the guns that Stephen Paddock used to shoot more than 500 people in Las Vegas fired automatic rounds, they were perfectly legal, according to rules established by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF),” the CBS report falsely stated.
CBS later updated their report but they failed to mention their correction anywhere in the article.
