I can't help but laugh at the utter naïveté (and that is a kind word) to think that strict gun laws will drastically lower violence or specifically gun crimes.
"Shucks...I'm fully homicidal, ready to take my own life and the lives of others without pause, and I've planned this entire attack. But I'm not allowed to purchase a handgun, so I guess I'll go play some racquetball instead." Lolol
I am 100% for common sense gun laws re: felons, mentally unstable, etc. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE GUNS. Period. End of story. The people that are mad enough to commit horrific atrocities like this aren't going to be swayed by draconian legislation. It is borderline naïveté/stupidity to think that.
IMO, the most relevant issue at hand is letting mentally deranged people slip through the cracks until they seriously harm someone. Have you noticed mental issues have been a universal theme in every single one of these attacks?
Common sense gun laws? Sure. Banning the sale of handguns universally? Yeah...right.
And for the record, I understand this killer didn't even use automatics
