Friend of Ohio shooter bought him armor, firearm

An attorney representing a man accused of buying and storing body armor for the Dayton gunman has said his client was shocked by the mass shooting. He added that his client, Ethan Kollie, fully cooperated with authorities before his arrest. Prosecutors said Monday that Kollie bought the armor, a gun accessory and a 100-round magazine for his friend Connor Betts earlier this year.

I'm surprised left-leaning sources are reporting on this, considering it debunks the idea that legislation preventing the shooter from obtaining these things through regular means would have prevented the shooting.

background checks for baseball bats. While 467 people were killed with “blunt objects,” like hammers and clubs in 2017, 403 were killed with rifles, the recent FBI crime statistics show. https://lauraloomer.us/2019/08/11/fbi-more-people-killed-by-hammers-stabbed-to-death-than-killed-with-rifles/#.XVIZnR5lA0M

ATF stands for After The Fact, because they stop mass shootings after the fact.

I'm not sure how valid the info is but 5.56/.223 rounds are meant to penetrate and tumble do it's not impossible for one round to hit multiple people.

I think the answer is more guns. Not like the less guns initiatives worked.

That's a little less then one per second. Not impossible, but highly unlikely. Really depends on how heavy the crowds were.

I guess they only need a surveillance video and could easily time it from that. Not at all complicated. *shrugs*
