Reports from witnesses say the main sounds were 'assault rifles'. Who had the 'assault rifles'? Police and other law enforcement.

Witnesses: Semi-automatic gunfire dominated biker shootout - WacoTrib.com: Twin-peaks-biker-shooting
But authorities still have not said how many of the dead and wounded were the result of police fire.
Police have identified only one assault weapon, a semi-automatic gun that fires high-powered ammunition, among the firearms confiscated from bikers, and that was found in a locked car after the shooting ended.
Six witnesses interviewed by the AP describe a melee that began with a few pistol shots but was dominated by semi-automatic gunfire.
Waco police have said they returned fire after being shot at, and call the witnesses' depictions of events incorrect.
"I heard one pistol shot. All the rest of the shots I heard were assault rifles," said Cochran, who took cover behind a crane about 30 yards away.
Waco police spokesman Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton says the witnesses' depictions of events are "absolutely incorrect," asserting that police shot fewer rounds than the bikers. He confirmed that some officers carry semi-automatic weapons, which fire a single shot with every pull of the trigger, and automatically reload between shots.
Jennifer Cicolani, of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, noted that a semi-automatic gun can shoot more bullets in less time than a small-caliber weapon.
BTW, anyone want to tell the ATF woman that small arms can be semi-automatic weapons and the technology is the same in AR15 and semi-automatic pistol and the rate of fire should be the same.
Aurtopsies and ballistics - if released - may be interesting.
