To be precise, a Colt sporter is a semi-automatic rifle which fires once each time the trigger is pulled. It is sometimes called an assault weapon by gun banners. An actual assault rifle would be a machine gun firing either full-auto or a 3 round burst mode.

It's only an assault rifle if it has more than a 20 round magazine...Otherwise it's just an unregistered weapon, Which if he purchased anywhere in the US legally is only a misdemeanor...So the gun charge will be tossed out, he'll loose that sweet AR15 but there will be no charges filed for the gun...Watch and see if I am wrong...

Weapons are so outdated. Think climate change and germ warfare. That should do the job.

Jesus TMZ please get someone on staff who knows WTF they are talking about. Thats not a military grade rifle.. Thats a AR15 clone worth about 1000.00 you can see the safety right there in the pic and its a SEMI AUTO not a assault weapon which is fully AUTO... on the Semi auto you just have safe and fire... on Full auto you have safe fire and burst etc..

Now if it was a REAL M16 or a Full Auto AR15 then he would have a issue in Cali unless he was a class 3 dealer...
