For most shotguns, I would agree with you, but that is a semiautomatic, tactical-style model that actually looks a bit superficially similar to some assault rifles, so I can see where folks with just a general knowledge of guns would make the mistake.
However, it is most definitely a shotgun and not any kind of rifle. I do not pretend to be a gun expert, nor do I play one on tv, and I didn’t even stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but I can tell that with 100% certainty.
