DON'T NEED A MASSACRE TO KNOW WHICH WAY THE WIND BLOWS:

Dayton's GOP congressman now supports 'restricting military-style weapon sales, magazine limits' (The Week, August 6, 2019)

On Tuesday, Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio) announced his support for "restricting military-style weapon sales, magazine limits, and red flag legislation." Turner is a former mayor of Dayton, where a 24-year-old gunman murdered nine people early Sunday, and represents the city in Congress. "I understand not every shooting can be prevented or stopped from these measures, but I do believe these steps are essential," he wrote in a statement. The Dayton shooter, who was killed by police, carried an AR-15 style rifle and a 100-round magazine, and may have had 250 rounds on him. When he started firing, Turner's daughter was at a bar across the street.

It's a democracy and voters want restrictions.
