And that's exactly why we need to support the 2nd Amendment!! Those shootings and murders you note are commited by criminals who would get guns with or without the concent of the 2nd Amdt (for example: isn't murder already ilegal).
What the 2nd Amdt. does is provide us law obiding citizens with the right to bear lawful arms in order to protect ourselves from the criminal populus that will always exist.
