I has little to do with gun control. In my country guns are already controlled. The shooting was all over the news. Last year there was a similar

appealing to many people. It shocks people, it angers people and it scares people.
You are right, but the crime that increases is illegal gun possession. Not murder or gunned robberies.
I must disagree. I do believe you are correct in that it shocks people, and they want to know more, and that is one reason it makes so many
headlines. The other reason, is for Gun control, both reporters and politicians will, without fail, bring up the topic of gun control following one of
these mass shooting events. They are doing this to see if it is popular enough yet, to strip away more of our 2nd amendment.
I also believe this was the whole motive for the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, and why I don't completely write off the multiple shooter
conspiracy theories for both recent mass shootings.
