Gun control won’t stop massacres

Events in El Paso and Dayton were awful. Outlawing certain types of guns won’t prevent such massacres because illegal guns are being used to perpetrate them now.

The Dayton shooter’s rifle had a 100-round magazine. In Ohio, that constitutes a “machine gun” and is illegal. Today.
