This gets to the root of why these topics are (somewhat) taboo here. Logic, cogent arguments, and relevant observations have no place in an emotional discussion.

Seems like a moot point. You can't carry a gun into a concert venue and you can't carry a gun into a sports venue. So I'm not sure what there is to say regarding gun laws. No one would have a gun there even if they owned one. Also no one should live life thinking they have to carry a gun around just in case someone tries to kill them. It's the presence of guns that creates that fear not the lack of them.

The ignorance of people is amazing.
You don't seriously want to engage me, or likely anyone else, on the subject of ignorance.
No sooner had I hit the streets
When I met the fools that a young fool meets
All in search of truth and bound for glory
And listening to our own heartbeats
We stood around the drum
Though it's fainter now, the older I've become

Have you ever compared the gun death rates in Europe vs. the United States.
Gun deaths in Europe are 1% of the US.

Hey Folks
It was a tragedy and this debate is going no where on this board. It can be, or is, political in nature. Let's hope all of the affected can find peace. It was a dreadful situation. I guess we can try the debate in the watercooler section and see if it can remain somewhat civil. I retain the right to close the thread though.
