The criminals are the ones that disregard law and would find a way to get their hands on a gun, or some weapon of the like.
Well I dunno it seems to work pretty well in the UK and lots of other countries.

Yes anything is a weapon but it is easier to kill people with a gun rather than a knife.
I'm not trying to push any bullshit agenda here, I'm not using a tragedy as a flag for for my own beliefs. It's your country you do what you want to do. But be sensible, guns are at least part
of the issue.
Also I hate the way these sort of disasters are always so over publicized, the media saturation of these events often leads to copy cats. I really hope nothing else happens.
