I think what people forget in the whole "gun control" discussion is about the original intent of the 2nd (tightly coupled with the 3rd) amendment. It's not about being able to buy a simple consumer product that some people can misuse, make others uncomfortable, or just because the feel like it that day.   
   
The 2nd Amendment is about giving the populace a mechanism to keep the government in check. An armed revolt is a handy way for the people to take back their country from a corrupt government. (We can argue whether one exists today, but that's besides the point.) The 3rd Amendment prevents the government from garrisoning troops in civilian homes, occupying and suppressing them as needed.   
   
So guns are a part of American life, and the price to pay is that unfortunately those guns will be misused. We can reduce the amount of misuse, indeed  history and statistics have shown we have despite what is going in the news, and we should. Not through misguided but well-meaning legislation, but through holding people accountable and giving them an opportunity to protect themselves. Guns are not inherently good or evil, it's how they are used makes them that way.   
   
I believe we need guns that can, at some level, allow us to take on the military if we have to. Incrementally crippling the citizenry's ability to fight back is the slow road to tyranny.   
   
   
tl;dr - some gun deaths are the price we pay for keeping the government in check.

Yeah. Guns need to be outlawed to keep them out of the hands of criminals! You know what else we should outlaw? Meth and cocaine because they're bad too. What? We did? But criminals still have them. What does that say about guns?

BUT we still got our insane people and our shootings here to    
So i guess this content has a point

Problem #1 with banning assault weapons:

How do you define assault weapons?

-A gun made with intent to kill = all guns
-AK47-style guns (fully automatic aren't legal anyways)
-Semiautomatic rifles/handguns = guns most people use, including police
-10-round clips =/= weapons, simply things you put in weapons (therefor NOT assault weapons)
-Guns that you can attach things to like a flashlight (literally all guns)

Google "security theater." The guns you see in CAWADOODEE are just as deadly as any other gun.

It's easy and comfortable to label these people as insane. Because the alternative, that they were in complete control of their mental faculties, is too horrifying for the sheltered masses to contemplate.

You are erroneously simplifying a problem you don't understand.

"I don't think it's about more gun control. I grew up in the south with guns everywhere, and we never shot anyone. This (shooting) is about people who aren't taught the value of life."

This is the one episode of bullshit I didn't agree with. Even if I agree with Penn on most issues and admire him greatly for the way he encourages reasoned thinking.
