25. You make some good points, but the OP was about the interest

level drop off for this latest shooting. I agree that measures for reducing "common" murders will differ markedly for those addressing mass shootings. I'm no fan of the NRA, but objectively, in the long run, there is no upside to ignoring mass killings. That group has a tiger by the tail, and cannot be seen as appeasing gun controllers, hence their backing off from UBCs they once supported. They fear a strengthened Gun Owners of America (far more militant) and newer more strident groups.
