The common thread in all these mass shooting is not people, but guns.

Banning firearms is known to not work, as they will just make some cosmetic changes to the banned gun, and then business as usual.
Anyone in the business of manufacturing or making firearms, needs to be federally registered.
What needs to be done, besides keeping track of all firearms, from manufacture to destruction, is to license the people that have and/or want any guns/firearms of any kind. Caught in public without a license/permit for the firearm(s) you have with you, risk losing all your firearms, a fine, and/or prison hard time. Or any combination of the forgoing. Each and every gun a person has, has to be individual registered to the person having possession and include the name of the real owner responsible.
Keep your unregistered stash in your hide-hole, so the gun grabbers can't get them? Fine, be careful to who you show your collection to. And don't forget to get them registered if you ever have to move. And also be able to answer the question as to why you have this stash of unregistered weapons in the first place. One gun, fairly easy. Ten guns, not so much.
We need to make it inconvenient for the gunners, instead of the general public, when the members of the public have to attend the funerals of their friends and love ones. To say nothing about the inconvenience of the people who have had lives cut short, because of those that fight tooth and nail against any meaningful weapons regulations.
Any state laws and regulation cannot work as long as any one state has lax weapons laws. Therefor the Federal Government has to impose uniform laws and regulations across all the states. Most guns cross state lines at some time between manufacture and sale to the first private owner. That is the hook the Federal Government has, if only it would use it.

Three words

National Rifle Association.

The NRA needs to be declared to be what they actually are. A hate group. And/or maybe a terrorist enabler organization.
Some of the shooting in this country have been classified as a terrorist act. Because the NRA's main function is to fight any and all common sense weapon regulations, they enable practically anyone or group to acquire all the guns they want for the shootings and massacres they plan.

Because these deadly weapons flow from states with lax gun laws, to states that are at least trying to do something constructive and those gun cross state lines, the Federal Government has a responsibility to step in. Congress should not need to do anything, as there is probably laws with enough teeth already in place concerning hazardous items.
All it would take is for someone with the power, to do what is necessary here.
