Because a baseball bats only use isn't "KILL ****** KILL".

Since 2010, there have been 29 recorded school shootings in the United States and 1 in Europe. Guess which one of those two places has tighter gun control.

[inb4 one's a country the other's a continent. They're both fairly similar land mass sizes and population]

Isn't Europe a bit upset with their gun laws now though? I read somewhere that there is still conflict... Sides, gun control doesn't help limit illegal acts. Guns will still be here. Criminals will still find a way. I am not being an ass or anything... Just guns are used for sport (IE. Hunting, target hitting, ect)... Just people use them wrong... Like baseball bats... I am not wanting to ensue an argument at all! I just want you to understand that at the moment, Europe is till going through a lot even with the gun law. People still hurt and kill with bats today like guns. Both items used for sport.    
   
Just up right and blaming guns isn't the solution. Maybe controlling who gets a gun better maybe. Like... medical tests to make sure you're healthy enough... I don't know. I just don't enjoy an object being the blame for something a unfit being did...   
   
I hope this is understandable and not going to send someone off on a big mean wall of text.

American's have a completely different psychology than any other European country.

Except bats original purpose was to kill, people also use it for sport just as guns are used in sport. And guess where nearly all the shootings took place "Gun free zones" US statistics show that when gun control is enacted here more people get robbed, killed, and raped, and when they lax them the numbers drop.

Yes, but nowadays a bat is commonly used in a little known sport known as baseball, which is case you didn't notice is a little more popular than shooting based events.

Also, most events require single shot sporting guns.

So if something is popular we should allow it? Millions hunt and target shoot, by this logic that should be allowed. And no, there are a variety of shooting competitions almost none of which use single shots.

Americans need to realize that making a new law doesn't make it instantly 100% take effect. For big laws like this, banning guns will probably be ineffective for a few years, then will be better in the long run. America is too concerned with right now.

Yes, bats were used to kill, thousands of years ago. We're talking about a thing that was made with a primary use that is for sports.
A guns primary use is to fire a deadly piece of metal to most likely kill, harm or injure.

Except the so called "assault weapons" everyone is talking about banning are primarily sporting rifles, the places that sell them even label them sporting rifles. Also the gun bans lasted 10 plus years, long enough to gather substantial data.
