Means to spray fire semi-auto range from using your thumb or a rubber band or various other means, to special stocks that allow you to do so. The courts were correct in noting that these weapons and magazines result in more victims with more injuries / more bullet holes in them. It was considered to be extremely well proven in the arguments and submissions of evidence.

Spray fire only means lots bullets coming out of a weapon in a very short period of time; it has no connection to use as a garden hose is used, waving it around.

However, it is appearing that is how Adam Lanza gunned down the children in one of the classrooms at Sandy Hook, based on reports of rapid and continuous gun fire, and the fact that the kids were all huddled with their teacher in one corner of the room. That was the class where one young girl was covered in blood, but under bodies, not actually shot miraculously. Lanza appears to have taped large capacity magazine together butt end to butt end, so they could be reversed quickly for rapid insertion into the Bushmaster. He had with him over 400 rounds of ammo, all or most of them prepared in that manner.

Spray fire is also reported by police in how semi-auto assault weapons, either rifle or pistol, are used against them.

I researched people making videos or writing about spray fire, how to and demonstration, and quit counting after a fast 400, with thousands, arguably tens of thousands more I could count - but that gets tedious after a few hundred. There are clearly many more out there available to the public, and it is clearly a widespread practice that ranges from free, to cheap, to inexpensive, but all readily available.

I hope I don't come across as too 'sharp', but after a certain number of conversations where people who presume they know more about firearms than I do patronizingly tell me this is not possible, that it is a myth, I get a bit impatient with hearing or seeing that.

And in every case where I have provided evidence of this practice, the patronizing person simply leaves the discussion, unable to refute that spray fire, often under the term bump fire, is ONLY limited by the capacity of bullets fed into the weapon. A semi-auto assault-style weapon will fire all the bullets in a 100 round drum magazine at only slightly slower speed than full auto. The difference to someone without a stop watch is almost undetectable.

You saying, um, well they might be wrong, is not refutation.

And the NY Times was not misleading either.

Explain to me how these weapons in the videos below are not spray fire:
