Not In Favor of Gun Bans, Huh?

The pro-gun control side often claims that they are not after your guns, that they only want "common sense" gun laws.  But consider this statement made by Josh Sugarmann, made in this article:
"There is no valid reason for civilians to have assault rifles, semiautomatic handguns and high-capacity magazines," he said. "We have to start ratcheting down the firepower in civilian hands in the United States."
Sound to me like he wants not one but three bans in place: one of so-called assault weapons (Hey, Josh, "assault rifles", the fully automatic military weapons, are already banned), semi-automatic handguns, and high capacity magazines.  So, I guess Ruger Mini-14, revolvers, and standard capacity magazines (15-17 rounds) are okay then?  And when deranged people commit mass murder with these weapons, what will you ban then?
