Although most law enforcement officials and military personnel use automatic of semi-automatic firearms, these negate the desire to switch to full-auto, thus wasting bullets. Scopes are recommended for all types of rifles.
Assault rifles tend to use mid-ranged scopes. It is highly recommended to stay on the "semi-auto" mode to save ammunition.
