In CNN's report on the pregnant Florida woman who used her husband's AR-15 rifle to scare off the two intruders who broke into their home, the outlet described the weapon as an "automatic rifle."

The AR-15 is a semi-automatic rifle and is unable to fire more than one round per pull of the trigger.

"A Florida man said two armed men invaded his home and were beating him when his wife, eight months pregnant, saved the day by shooting one of the intruders with an automatic rifle," CNN reported.

In their tweet about the story, the "automatic rifle" portion was included.
