Which assault weapon should I upgrade for this survivor. I'm leaning towards the first one, with sure shot she'll be doing massive critical damage (for an assault).

If it were me, I would go with the 2nd one without hesitation. Gold wide-spread & interrupt. But that's because I have very passionate viewpoints pertaining to Assault class' role. Crit chance, crit dmg, etc., on Assault is like giving Scouts IronSkin; they're still squishy. Assaults aren't the best at damage potential when it comes to comparable or higher lvl walkers/opponents; crits don't change that fact significantly over the long run. Assaults are put on this apocalyptic Earth to lead the front lines, be a tank for team, and to 'soften up' tough targets for the other teammates to finish off. Your best bet is the spread & interrupt traits.
The only time I would choose crit/dmg traits is solely with the "Prison Assault" rifle; that thing is a beast (higher base damage than both Hunter and Warrior weapons). With lethal, and crit traits, the Assault can be an Army of one. So sheer firepower trumps in that situation. But that's the only exception, in my opinion.
