I agree that guns aren't the problem, nut cases are the problem. However, most nut cases are cowards which is why the vast majority of these events happen in gun free zones and the second that these nuts are confronted by someone that is armed, they usually surrender or commit suicide. Based on this alone, it is "dumb" to not acknowledge that guns in the hands of the good guys are a solution in many cases.
