A couple things:
I do beloieve we need to ban assault weapons for anyone to be able to get. There is no need for them. A 22 caliber will kill someone too if you shoot them and hit them in the right area. I do believe we can still allow people to have pistols/shotguns/rifles, just not the type that fire off mahy rounds in a short period of time. Give the DEER and SQUIRELLS a chance!
Ohh..you didn't mean to use them for hunting wildlife??? Then why do you need them???
Video Games have been around since I was a kid (1970's). We had games that were shooter games back then. Not like some that are out there today but still shooter games. Does that make me a "Killer", because I play them? Heck NO. And the Millions of other folks who play them and still play them should not be labeled either as potential killers.
I do believe Parenting issues can trigger behavior. Maybe we need to take a look at how society is doing as Parents to our children?
Anyway, this topic will NEVER go away. No matter what they put in place, things will still happen (Where there is a will, there is a way). I just pray that Massacres like what happened in Sandy Hook don't happen again. Will they, probably, but can we at least be vigilant and be on guard with our surroundings? Of course. There were several teachers that lost their lives, protecting students, and in other killings there have been other numerous heroes that have given their life to save another.
Unfortunately like I said, this topic will be up for discussion the rest of our lives. I wish there was a "one stop shop" to stop this violence, but no matter what is put in place, it will still happen.
