Well OP, personally? I don't. In the last couple years I've sold several "assault rifles" with the last M-1 carbine going last year. My scoped rifles and very reliable .45 with buckets of ammo for both and spare parts to last my lifetime is all I really need.
Others aren't as confident in hitting what they shoot at or putting it down when it's hit, so need a gazzillion .22's on steroids (.223's).
Oh... I kinda like my Mossberg 500 too, but that's got all kinds of uses. I've really come to see high capacity rifles as high dollar, high waste methods of doing the same thing. Opinions do vary enormously on this one though, to say the least.

How people choose to exercise their rights is up to them.
Some aggressively exercise their first amendment rights. They write books, they protest, they start churches, and so on. While others don't do much more than signing an occasional petition and joining a local church.
The same is true with second amendment rights. Some choose to have no guns. And some choose to have many and varied ones. And everything in between.
That's what having rights is all about.

Because deer are getting tougher and smarter! They've got Kevlar for hides these days and they shoot laser beams out of their horns and... oh, wait. That was a drug fuelled dream.
On a more serious note - they don't need assault rifles.
