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?

FAL's & AK's:How Guns enter the Black Market: Another Example (Zimbabwe/Ex-Rhodesia)
Detectives from the ZRP Criminal Investigation Department (CID) investigating the theft of firearms from Nkulumane Police Station last week are following leads that the guns were destined for neighbouring Mozambique, where thieves are said to have a ready market for FN rifles. “We have information that security companies handling transit cash in Mozambique prefer using FN rifles, but they cannot get them in that country”...Three police officers were arrested and are being questioned in connection with aiding the criminals...The thieves got away with two FN rifles, two AK 47 rifles and some pistols...the FN Rifle was the most popular and widely adopted battle rifle among non-eastern bloc countries during the cold war era. It is renowned for being accurate, reliable and powerful. The FN was also the standard military rifle of the Rhodesian armyand is still in use in some units of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces... ----- Full story at The Zimbabwean ------ The excellent FN-FAL, the Belgian equivalent to the US M-14, continues to be a highly prized firearm both with collectors and with action men who know they can bet their lives on this well-machined hard-hitting semi-automatic battle rifle (I'd love to have one in my collection, but it's not likely to happen). I have seen men armed with the FAL take down fully grown African elephants(!). Here again, we see that those who need firearms will find a way to obtain them, even at risk of their lives & freedom, when in many cases misguided anti-gun "laws" force many into unnecessary & unjustified criminality...(S9)
