Cabbie stopped for speeding
Steals police car
Shoots police officer and bystander with assault rifle
I wonder if he passed a background check to get that gun?
It's going to be a rifle that is mostly or all black and is semi-auto only. So by the press's definition, an assault rifle but by any proper criteria, not an assault rifle.
The question you should be asking is "would a universal background check have stopped him from shooting the people?" I really doubt it!
"Our officer returned fire and a good samaritan provided cover and rescued him while the offender continued to shoot at him with an assault rifle."
Sounds as if a non-police civilian did some return fire?
