As I understand (IANAL!) these were already forbidden in USA by a 1990s-era ruling which banned all electrically-fired repeating arms (there was a crackpot company which offered paraplegics a tele-operated "safari" hunt.) They were deemed to be "fully automatic" on account of there being no mechanical barrier to issuing multiple shots per one software "trigger pull".
