    That sounds nearly impossible to do, and usually whenever people in mass are told NOT to do something, they do it. That's usually why gun sales go up when they try to enact new gun laws (As they did under Obama.), or after shootings. It's a great dream, but  it''s not going to happen. Also, didn't this guy get bombs as well? This is clearly not just a gun problem here.

Pretty much anything can be made to kill (otherwise harmless chemicals to make bombs, for instance), but guns are tools designed specifically to cause injury; in cases of self defense, that's completely warranted.  The thing is, for the vast bulk of instances of justifiable defense, handguns were used, but for the vast bulk of mass shootings, something akin to military firepower was used.  

I don't think guns are the sole problem in general, but for certain guns, they serve no other purpose than to exacerbate the problem.
