    a "carbine".  It is a semi-automatic. It fires a .45 caliber round that was originally designed for the 1911 Colt .45 Automatic pistol. It resembles the full-auto "Tommy-gun", but has a longer barrel and will only fire one round for each pull of the trigger.

    It is not a "machine gun", although it certainly looks the part. It is, nevertheless, a very dangerous weapon and shouldn't be in the hands of a violent felon.
