The subject of gun control, background checks, etc., debates are of no help and misguided. Guns are only one item of many in the hand of a person wanting to do harm to another human being. There's always access to other items like knives, kitchenware, hammers, power tools, ropes, baseball bats, bare hands, poisons, gasoline, vehicles, etc., and the list goes on. The answer is education, not more laws.
