“Is that not a rifle?”

No, that is not a rifle

“Or some kind of gun that the general public would think is a rifle?”

You’re probably going to have to take a poll to answer that question, but sure, I can see many people making that mistake.

The same can be said about assault weapon.

I don’t know the technical aspect but I have seen claims that an AR-15 rifle is not necessarily an assault weapon.

It takes certain specifications to make it an assault weapon.

I can see local law enforcement calling a weapon the wrong thing. Rifle for long gun.
Long gun for Rifle

Etc.
