61. The military doesn't use civilian non-automatics like those, except in very specialized roles.

Those aren't automatic weapons in those pics, they are non-automatic civilian guns.

I'll also point out that rifles are the least misused of all weapons in the United States. Only 3% of all murders involve any kind of rifle whatsoever; 97% of murders are carried out with handguns, knives, clubs/hammers/bricks, fists/boots, or shotguns, in that order. Rifles rank last, behind all of those.
