First off, deep sympathies to the victims and their families

but you are correct, media loves calling civilian sport rifles "assault rifles". Any more than one firearm or round of ammo is a "stockpiled arsenal" and your house just became an "armed compound".

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
