Automatic TutorialThe Volokhs have a good piece on the differential between automatic and semi-automatic guns. Here's my quick synopsis:
Automatic: One trigger-pull=multiple bullets Semi-Automatic:One trigger pull=One Bullet
Thus, there is little difference between a revolver and a semi-auto other than that a semi-auto may have more than the six (or so) bullets in a revolver. We currently have the basic rule that full autos are outlawed for civilians while semi-autos are generally allowed. The anti-gun folks dwell upon the automatic part without understanding how it works.
