On Glock Revolvers, Rapid Fire Ammunition, and Assault Clips

My wife hates watching action movies with me. Her biggest complaint is hearing me groan when a scene involving a gun isn't accurate. I just tell her to deal with it, because she does a lot of things that annoy me. Alright, I don't actually tell her that but I'm thinking it!

Recently I have been reading a lot of news stories that are riddled with inaccuracies or flat-out made-up words.

Glock Revolver
I don't understand how an author of an article on gun control doesn't know the difference between  a semi-automatic pistol and a revolver. Don't get me wrong; I would love to see a Glock Revolver in real life, but I have a better chance of seeing the Minnesota Vikings win a Super Bowl. (Which will never happen...)

Rapid-Fire Ammo
These people think that the Federal Government is capable of protecting them from mass murders. If you want the Government to protect you get them to pass a carry law and start discreetly carrying a gun. Ultimately, it all comes down to what you are willing to do in order to protect yourself and the ones around you. Trust me the Government poses a more legitimate threat than made-up Rapid-Fire Ammo.

Assault Clips
I can understand the common mistake of calling a magazine a clip. I once did that until I was educated on the difference. But calling an extended magazine or even worse; a standard capacity magazine an Assault Clip!? You're being misleading and at worse you are placing blame for murders on a tool that saves lifes and not the human being that did the killing.
