Most of these shootings - at schools and at individual homes comes down to one thing - improper securing of the firearm used - when that fire arm is used by someone other than the owner.
Yes there really is no need for guns to fire rapidly 10 shots or more - just by pulling a trigger. They really should not be able to fire like more then 3 without needing to be reloaded and those 3 rounds need not be auto-matic at the pull of the trigger but could require a cocking between each round fired.
But the main problem is the fire arms being properly safely secured when not in use.
Murders will happen regardless of gun ownership.
List of countries by intentional homicide rate - Wikipedia, the free ... en.wikipedia.org/.../List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate See also: List of countries by intentional homicide rate by decade. List of countries by intentional homicide rate per year per 100,000 inhabitants.
I copied the above link as it does not go into homicides by type of weapon - just shows homicides by country.
Notice that the USA really is not the murder capitol of the world.
But take into account - those countries that top the list are seriously screwed in the running of their societies = SERIOUSLY SICK SOCIETIES
Note - that areas where the population is treated poorly by their governments and the businesses allowed to operate there - are the highest murder rates.
As a society fails ( and currently the USA is failing ) it's people - crime and violence rise in that society.
The cure for violence is a healthy society that looks for ways to make a healthy environment for ALL - not for the FEW.
