7. Not everyone is killer

The thing is though how do you keep guns out of the hands of people like this?

No matter what you do, you can't really prevent tragedies like this from happening. If someone wants to get a gun bad enough they will get it and do whatever they want with it. The key then has to be regulations strong enough to put a barrier in-front of people who wish to do harm with guns to discourage them, put not to interfere to the extreme with those who wish to use guns for lawful purposes.

I couldn't even begin to imagine how that could be accomplished but something should be done, you guys should look at what has worked and failed in other parts of the world. No matter what you do it will not be easy to find a reasonable middle ground between the two extremes of gun regulation , but I am sure that some compromise can be found
