It was politicized the day after, if not the day of. At least my Facebook was filled with posts from people wanting to rethink gun control laws and of course the other side saying "how dare they use this tragedy to push an agenda" and such.
I read another article talking about how stricter gun laws in other countries had inconclusive studies done and it doesn't guarantee the prevention of mass shootings. It suggests we should instead focus on the types of people who commit gun violence and get them the social or mental help they need to prevent the cause of the shootings. Gang violence, abusers, the mentally ill. How to spot them ahead of time and get them some kind of help.
As for this case, they were saying that to have the amount of weapons, accessories and ammo he had, he would have had to bring like 10 suitcases into his room. The hotel staff had reported nothing out of the ordinary so I haven't seen an answer to that mystery yet.
