Some folks still seem to think that limiting guns will limit guns in the hands of criminals. Gun control mostly limits the law-abiding citizen. If you do some research, you will find out that more guns equals less crime.
Just look at Chicago as a perfect example. The most restrictive gun laws in the nation with the highest crime rate. Just look up John Lott, the leading expert on gun control.
Also, for the millionth time, the Second Amendment is about protecting the people from a tyrannical government, and not about hunting and target shooting.
Finally, to clear things up, there is no civilian rifle capable of firing hundreds of rounds in a couple seconds. They are all semi-automatic. Get your facts straight, folks.
