I keep on seeing things stating "murder was already illegal" or it "won't stop people from illegally using guns" on social media and elsewhere.
And of course those things are true but it's a different category of gun violence in my personal opinion we are dealing with. As much as it sucks that gangs exist and domestic issues can lead to the guns being used (I would love to see improvement for those issues) we are talking about people who are basically going to battle with others unbeknownst to those individuals.
What is wrong with reducing the number of rounds in a magazine? The gun is still legal. Universal background checks would be a possible helping factors as well.
Do I believe there would still be mass shootings? Of course. No one should be ignorant to think otherwise. I just see trying to reduce it as much as possible is the sane course to take.
I know this sounds hyberbolic and maybe I'll get blasted for this but after 9/11 we did what we could to prevent an incident like that happening again. We reinforced cockpit doors, banned knives that had were over a certain length, etc. Airport security somewhat sucks now but the attempt was there. On that day 2,977 people died. By himself, this guy caused almost one fifth of that in total casualties.
This event and Sandy Hook (which was worse I believe on an emotional level) don't cause any significant change, I think we have to accept this is life. It just will be.
