I wonder whether stricter nation wide gun control would have prevented this tragedy.

Why not? It "worked" in the UK, now they just machete everyone and run em down in trucks.... By the way edged weapons never run out of ammo.

Maybe. But limiting your ability to own a weapon isn’t always a complete solution. Having a camera in every home and a camera on every street corner would also help prevent such tragedies. But do you want to go there?

Burgers Allday...no. We could make it illegal to kill people. We also could make it illegal for people who are underage, or with mental health issues, or are convicted felons, or are domestic abusers, or are illegal aliens to posses firearms. Oh...wait, we already have that, so we should just take all the firearms away from law abiding citizens but then you'll have to talk criminals, bangers, etc. into giving up their weapons. If you want to fix the killing, you'll have realize the problem is people. Guns, knives, vehicles, bombs are the symptom. Fix the problem...not the symptom.

@Burgers Allday No. it would not. As JBo pointed out, guns are just the tool not the problem. In places with strict gun laws criminals still have weapons. Why? Because they do not follow the laws and get their weapons illegally. If they cannot get guns they use knifes, vehicles, bombs, or other things. The point is, if someone is intent on killing a lot of people they will find a way around the laws and sue what is easily available. Plus let me refresh your memory a bit. There was an active shooter in a church in Texas a while back. The neighbor who lived next to the church heard the shots, got his legally obtained firearm and entered the church. He saved countless lives by shooting and chasing off the shooter. This is a common story in Texas where many citizens are armed. When you disarms the public you make it where only the criminals have guns. That is not a good situation.
