More killings with frying pans than assault weapons in Dayton area, sheriff says

Associated Press

DAYTON

Authorities in one Ohio city are more concerned about large-capacity magazines than assault weapons that are the subject of debate in Washington.

Last year there were 27 homicides in Dayton, population 142,000, with handguns the preferred weapon and just one case involving an assault rifle. Most of the handguns had large-capacity magazines.

The sheriff in Montgomery County, which includes Dayton, says it has investigated more homicides involving frying pans in the past three years than assault weapons.

According to the Dayton Daily News the most popular tool for killers in Dayton is a semi-automatic handgun.

and how many of those homicides used the entire high capacity magazine? If the homicide occurred within the first five rounds that's just about any firearm out there.

Ban cast iron! Lightweight aluminum frying pans save lives!

excel I think you miss the point, frying pans kill, people don't kill.
All frying pans need to be outlawed.
