Semi-automatic technology is over 100 years old! Semi-automatic(aka Self loading)tech is not machine gun full-automatic tech, some firearms merely look similar. Civilian ownership of such firearms are a right, not a privilege.
Current "laws" suppressing ownership are blatant infringements. Having a semi automatic heart means you represent the unique freedom & liberty of America, and are standing watch over those sacred rights. I have this heart: How about you?

Crackdown on Licensed Gun Owners, Murderous Militants unaffected (Lebanon)
Minister of Defence Elias Murr issued an order this week "freezing all arms licences granted on all Lebanese territory until further notice", according to a statement from the Lebanese Army. "The proliferation of arms in each and every street and neighbourhood is no longer acceptable"..."From now on, the military and security forces, the army and internal security forces, will assume the responsibility of controlling security, and will track down anyone who may provoke problems in this country, especially like the one that happened yesterday," Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri said...Clashes erupted in a Beirut neighbourhood...between followers of the Hezbollah resistance movement and the pro-Syrian Sunni Al Ahbash group, killing at least three people. Rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machineguns were used in the skirmish...-------
Same old story: The registered gun owners, none of whom are licensed to own Heavy Machineguns or Rocket-Propelled Grenade launchers, but are on a government list, take it in the shorts for the out of control behavior of reckless armed militants that are the actual menaces to society, (which government forces are reluctant to take on in actual battle, only in the bombastic media rhetoric of government leaders). Registration = confiscation = disarmed victim-hood for everyone except the armed factions, who laugh in the face of useless "gun laws". Armed Bad Guys can only be stopped by armed Good Guys, an immutable law of nature the "rose colored glasses" Utopians refuse to accept...(S9)
