Thompson submachine gun, 600-1500 rpm, banned successfully 1934.

The Las Vegas shooter used a bump stock to achieve 9 rps (540 rpm).— Yas Over Elbow (@Yastreblyansky) February 16, 2018
The Orlando shooter reached 2.66 rps/160 rpm.
Ban on Tommy gun didn't stop gang killings, but made them far less lethal. Banning semi-automatics would save lives.
Not a majority of lives lost to guns, which are mostly suicide and spouse/partner murder. Just a few. But these include concertgoers in Las Vegas, clubbers in Orlando, children slaughtered in Columbine, Newtown, Va Tech, now Broward County.
