Fully automatic is already illegal. The problem is that there is no clear definition of what an "assault rifle" actually is. Semi-auto is evil in their minds as well. AR manufacturers had to design what is known as a "bullet button" on AR's sold in California because California outlawed detachable magazines. Anti gun people use a wide brush to paint the image of what they think should be banned. Anything that "looks scary", detachable mags, "barrel shrouds"- you name it, they'll try to include it in a ban, without even knowing what half the stuff they are banning actually is.
