Assault Weapons, Anyone?

It's been a while since any trolls have been by, but this is sure to bring them on.

Detroit police searched Tuesday for a man who opened fire in a Detroit home day-care center, critically wounding three people, including a 3-year-old child, officials said.

Police Chief Ella Bully-Cummings told reporters that the man was wearing a black jacket and black pants and was carrying a steel blue, automatic gun.
Now, it's true we don't know where this guy got this weapon. But if there were sensible controls and licensing of weapons (including for re-sale by private owners) and a ban - a real ban - on weapons that are assault weapons rather than guns that have "certain characteristics" of assault weapons, then it would be much harder for things like this to happen.
