OH: Man uses Rifle in Self Defense

In this story, a man used a rifle in self defense.  The article says that it was an "automatic" rifle, but it was almost certainly a semi-automatic.  Legal automatic rifles are exceedingly rare.  Another interesting point is that the factory that makes Hi-Point carbines is in Mansfield, so it would be interesting to learn if the rifle was a Hi-Point. 

200 block of South Diamond Street, Mansfield - A man told police Sunday night that after someone knocked at the door , a person inside the residence opened the door and he heard a gunshot. He then ran upstairs to get his automatic rifle and began shooting through the floor at the unknown suspects below, in self defense. When he came back downstairs, everyone was gone.

As much as I love news, I really hate stupid reporters.
Even one of our local news guys, every news story he trys to make some kind of stupid joke out of it, not murder or death of course, but enough that I stopped watching all Cleveland news.

The national reporters aren't much better, but at least the cover international news.
