I don't care what they say

If we ban semiautos (just to keep running with my preference), then they have to wade into the black market to buy them. That will dissuade some. It will land others on the radar of law enforcement.
Others will acquire those guns anyway, and go on shooting sprees, like they were going to anyway.
So... what have we lost here?
