Backwards reasoning. Remove guns, removes the threat and possibility of them being used and someone innocent being hurt. Pro gun lobby can't even think straight.

I'm not sure. It really seems to be an issue in the US. We don't have weapons here and I am ok with that. The only reason I would need a weapon is when attacked and I live in a safe place so I have no real need for it anyway. But its different for different people. If the question was if I'm against shooting then yes, absolutely. But I don't know if more rules fix the underlying problems. What gets a person so mad that he actually wants to use a gun? Why do people feel so scared that they feel they need a weapon to protect themselves? The problem is, the more this kind of things happen, the more scaredness amongst people, the more scared people are, the more they want to hold on to their guns. I think we need to address the real problems and fix them instead of attacking the symptoms.

Unless the NFA, etc. are personally hit/affected, no.
