D&D 5E Firearms - Rate of Fire?


Greetings. Can someone smarter and with better reading comprehension than me explain what the rate of fire or number of attacks per round would be with a modern pistol or rifle using the new rules (not referring to single shot muskets etc)? I should be able to squeeze off more shots from a semi-automatic pistol or rifle for example in one round than loose arrows from a bow.

I'm somewhat confused...

It looks like to me that the rules are the same for firearms as they are for bows, in relation to the number of times they can be fired in a round. The exception to this is if the weapon has the 'burst fire' property, which instead allows you fire multiple projectiles into an area at the cost of theoretical accuracy.
