Feinstein gets Miller wrong

On Fox News Sunday today, California democat Senator Diane Feinstein said that the US vs. Miller case gave the government to regulate fully automatic firearms. Since Senator Feinstein is a long time foe of the Second Amendment, I find it hard to believe she managed to mangle that case so badly by accident.
The Supreme Court ruling on US vs. Miller case stated that the government could regulate a weapon (in the case under question, it was a shotgun, which actually was in use by the US Military at the time) because it was not used by the Military and thus not protected by the Second Amendment. So, what Feinstein said was completely and utterly false.
