This. As has been pointed out many times in this thread, there's more going on than just the availability of guns. Whether it's "gun culture", contempt for failure, lack of a safety net, too many video games/violent movies, excessive political correctness in parenting, or whatever -- something else is causing people to snap. The availability of guns just makes the snappage a dangerous event.
