No, it isn’t an assault rifle

But I wish I got misdeliveries like that. Heck, I don’t even find guns in the street

UPS Mistakenly Delivers Assault Rifle To LI Couple Instead Of Toy Plane
A Long Island couple was shocked to find an assault rifle delivered to their house — when in fact, they ordered a toy.

First, an assault rifle is a shoulder-fired long gun, chambered for an intermediate power cartridge, capable of selective fire (semi & auto).

That appears to be a Barret Model 95. (If I’m wrong, let me know.)

It’s a bolt action rifle. So it isn’t even capable of semi-automatic operation, much less full auto. And it’s chambered in .50 BMG which isn’t exactly “intermediate power.”

An assault rifle, it ain’t. But it’s black, so I suppose it’s evil in NY.
