Look, the recent shootings could have been done with shotguns or semi-automatic handguns and had the same implications - many people dead or wounded. Picking on one type of gun (or any gun, or all guns) isn't the issue and won't work to solve the problems no more than hanging more signs proclaiming a place to be a "gun free zone" will.

Laws are only for those who decide to abide by them. Those that won't abide by them care less what laws you pass.
