Simply put assault rifles by definition are fully automatic. The weapon used was semi-auto so that alone makes it not an assault rifle.
But to the bigger point it was also not even a 'assault weapon', which CT has had laws against possession of since 1993. The rifle was purchased in the last decade legally in CT and met no established definition of 'assault weapon'. It was simply an average run of the mill semi-automatic firearm, built upon the single most popular rifle receiver design made today.
