    Milwaukee police recover assault rifle after shooting


    Chief Flynn: Assault weapons create 'slow-motion mass murder'

    ...Flynn had officers bring out the weapon they recovered to prove the point he tried to make in Washington.

    "This is not a theoretical issue. This neighborhood has to live with too much violence, and one of the reasons is because criminals gain access to high-capacity, high-quality firearms, including assault weapons. It is a danger to the entire community, and this community is dangerous because of that," Flynn said. "Officers have to exercise great courage to confront these challenges, but every day, people who live here have to live with this slow motion mass murder that these weapons bring to the streets of urban America."

    Wednesday, Flynn testified before a Senate committee about a possible ban on assault weapons.

    "It's time for congress to pick a side," he said. "This time I hope it's law enforcement's."
