    The usual suspects are pointing to the need for more gun control and are likely going to blame racism, but not pointing out the skin color of the attacker or his manifesto.

    The chief confirmed that a .45 caliber pistol, a supressor and several empty, higher-capacity magazines were found
    What the heck is a "higher capacity magazine" for a .45?

    Did the guy have a big stick mag hanging out the bottom of a 1911?

    Yup. That 8th round is a killer. That's why some states limit a mag capacity to 7 rounds. They know that 8th one is just too dangerous.

    Not really. After all, photos show he was a "pothead" dreamer.

    Yep, and all of a sudden the next on the hit list shows up at a mass shooting

    Dayton Shooter Used AR with Arm Brace and Drum. Prepare for Bans!
    https://www.tacticalshit.com/dayton-...pare-for-bans/
    During a news conference on Sunday, Dayton’s Police Chief Richard Biehl showed for the first time the weapon that Conner Betts used during his deadly rampage.
    ..........
    AR-15 style firearms can be rifles or pistols. A pistol can have a short barrel, but no shoulder stock. A rifle can have a shoulder stock, but the barrel must be 16 inches or longer.
    Enter the pistol brace, also known as a stabilizing brace. For all practical purposes, this device allows pistols with short barrels to have something resembling a shoulder stock
    ..........
    Man trying to find an article without unblocking ads is getting harder
    I did see one with a photo of some black people weeping over someone
    I haven't seen anything indicating race was a motive for Dayton
    For peace of mind, resign as general manager of the universe

    Following the Dayton incident - - If I am not mistaken, Ohio already bans magazines holding more than 30 rounds. I believe it states 30+1 is legal, 31 +1 is not. If so, making large capacity magazines illegal, of which calling a Beta-C mag large capacity as it does hold 100 rounds, would mean that the murderer was already carrying a firearm in a banned configuration.

    Again, making murder illegal didn't stop him, and the 30 rounds in the mag limit didn't stop him. A policeman's bullet did! So a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun.

    They can tack a zillion laws on killing people, and criminals will still pull the trigger. It is only honest people who are hurt, or killed. And the first to complain on "gun violence" refuse to admit that gun free zones don't work. It only assures the criminal that his victims will not shoot back.
