OAKLAND, Calif. - A man wanted for violating his parole killed three officers and gravely wounded another in two shootings Saturday, the first after a routine traffic stop and the second after a massive manhunt ended in gunfire, authorities said. The gunman was also killed.
Police said the suspect, 27-year-old Lovelle Mixon of Oakland, fired an assault rifle at officers who came into the building to arrest him. Two officers were killed and a third was grazed by a bullet, police said.

I'm not from Cali, but I think they have a lot of going out in a blaze of glory type people, due to the three strikes law they have.
Since he was on probation this offense could have been his third which means automatic life sentence.
They would try to use it as a debate item but the NRA would eat them alive with it.
I'm not too worried about a renewed assault weapons ban anymore, 65 house dems already sent a letter to Holder stating that any anti-gun legislation that got introduced in the house would be DOA.
