Laws banning certain weapons won't deter anyone who is intent on shooting another person. The banning of guns only leaves the honest person more defenseless against the criminal world, who will have plenty of weapons. The call for a weapons ban only makes Obama "look" more presidential while surrounded by armed guards.
"Why" needs to be addressed. Violent video games and motion pictures just train people that to shoot someone is no big deal, it's just another game. Until we quit training unstable people that it's OK to shoot someone in a video or movie, the mass shootings will continue.
