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?

(Video) N.Y. Man Arrested For Defending Home/Family with Semiauto Kalashnikov ("AK-47")
Says Many Gang Members Were Coming After His Family
He got an AK-47 assault rifle, pulled the trigger and he ended up in jail, reports CBS 2’s Pablo Guzman. George Grier said he had to use his rifle on Sunday night to stop what he thought was going to be an invasion of his Uniondale home by a gang he thought might have been the vicious “MS-13...“He starts threatening my family, my life. ‘Oh you’re dead. I’m gonna kill your family and your babies. You’re dead.’ So when he says that, 20 others guys come rushing around the corner. And so I fired four warning shots into the grass”...
Had the firearm not been a "Dreaded Evil AK-47", this story may not have been more than a footnote in the daily crime blotter, especially since no one was injured. The "Gun grabbers" favorite anti-semiauto talking point is invariably"Why does anyone need an AK-47?". Well this is an example "why": One man outnumbered by 20 plus unruly Hoodlums holds a firearm with a 30 round magazine capacity: This can equalize and deter what could be certain death for the lone defender until the Police arrive to defuse the situation. The Anti-Gun Utopians prefer dead victims to lone defenders every time, however. In my view, I agree with what Gen. Douglas MacArthur once intoned: "There is no substitute for victory". Citizen Grier's firearm (& 2nd Amendment liberty) made that victory possible!....(S9)
