Wow, where to start? A writer who should be well educated, but is obviously ignorant at the same time.
Maybe on your next article you can actually do some homework before writing the article. Your ranting seems amazingly like the recent preliminary votes by our own Colorado politicians who are casting their votes based purely on emotion and panic, instead of research, facts, and logic.
Let's remember Columbine. The two kids that did the shooting used shotguns and a hunting rifle, not assault style weapons. Completely legal, even if the new panic driven laws go into effect.
The Aurora theater, and the grade school shooting in Newton, Connecticut. Do you really think that the people that commited these incidents, who are obviously so dis-connected from society to think of it in the first place would follow any guns laws?
How about Timothy McVeigh and the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing, where he exploded a truck bomb that killed 168 people and injured over 800. The bomb was constructed of fertilizer and diesel fuel. Both perfectly legal.
Let's just admit that people that are not in complete control of their thoughts, reasoning, or ethics can hurt and kill other people with numerous things, the majority of which are legal. Next time, do your research and try to at least look professional.
