Gotta love how the media has turned a term that describes guns made since the 1800's (revolvers) included and made it into a negative term. It would be like them turning automatic trannys into "super speed shifters in high performance death machines" Ban them all.......Pretty much every gun besides bolt action and pump shottys is a "semi automatic" One bang per trigger pull.

And dont get me started on the term "assault rifle"
