Honest question for those demanding immediate gun control [View all]

What regulation would have prevented this tragedy? The guns were purchased legally by the shooter's mother. The .223 rifle was apparently NOT used in the shooting; it was found in the trunk of the shooter's car. Banning "assault weapons" wouldn't have prevented this. Banning extended clips wouldn't have prevented this. Requiring psychiatric evaluations before every gun purchase would not have prevented this. So I ask the folks demanding immediate gun control and accusing every one they disagree with of having "blood on their hands," what is your solution? Because if you're not advocating something that actually addresses this tragedy, then you're just exploiting it to further a pre-existing agenda.
