Did you read what you quoted. After the millionth time, I'm talking in a technical, not conventional, sense.
While both "semi automatic" and "fully automatic" weapons are "automatic" in technical sense that the firearm automatically cycles between rounds with each trigger pull, under conventional usage a merely semi-automatic firearm is not correctly referred to an "automatic weapon" or an "automatic firearm".
Meaning, a semi-automatic firearm is correctly referred to as an automatic firearm in the technical sense, but in the conventional talk, people just call it a semi-auto.
And technically, you could call a gatling gun "automatic" because it self feeds the ammo.
But technically, all fire arms are manual because you have to manually load, manually point, and manually pull the trigger,..
Automatic is used by fear mongers to vilify semi-automatic weapons and should never be used to refer to semi-automatic weapons... technically speaking.
