Going after the wrong PEOPLE! Ordinary, sane citizens who acquire firearms through lawful channels are not the cause of tragedies.
Going after guns...ANY guns, is not going to solve the problem of mass shootings. Limiting good citizens' rights has no measurable effect on the problem and this is crystal-clear to anybody who understands the issue. Many who understand don't care, they will lie if it serves their agenda.

That is exactly it too. People that commit crimes with guns can't legally purchase them to begin with. All the gun laws in the world do nothing to those who break laws as a matter of course. The cure is to lock them up for extended sentences if they use a gun in the commission of a crime and make sure it's added time. Criminals love unarmed victims.....
