The problem is or was inside the mind of the shooter and the only way you can stop this madness is when people are comfortable enough to say I got a problem and need help.
It would be just as easy to kill as many people with truck or even a car. So if you support taking away a weapon it can't stop with guns.
I am sure there are many who have been scared into this type of thought process and that was the shooters motivation.
I own multiple guns and have shot competetively. No responsible gun owner needs military ammo, large magazines or silencers, all things the NRA says should be legal so gun manufacturers can make more money. How much longer would it have taken police to locate the shooter if he'd used a silencer? How many fewer would have died if the shooter wasn't able to squeeze off 50 rounds at a time? The issue to me is not what will stop all gun violence but what will reasonably save even some lives without restricting responsible gun use. I highly doubt the killer was thinking about his effect on gun policy, he was just hateful. Although improving access to mental health care sure wouldn't hurt these issues either!
