Very true. A couple of decades back we have a couple of cases in Britain with lunatics going wild with guns, at Hungerford and Dunblane and the laws, already fairly strict were tightened further. A couple of years after this another nutter attacked a junior school with a knife and while a female teacher was badly cut up protecting the children no one died. Similarly in recent years when Islamic bigots go on killing sprees they generally use cars and/or knives BECAUSE THEY CAN GET HOLD OF THOSE rather than guns.

I think the problem is the profits from the gun industry, which tend to be boosted after mass shootings, coupled with idiots and the paranoid mislead by the false interpretation of the 2nd amendment.
