Samuel Jackson gets it.
Samuel L. Jackson doesn't believe liberal gun regulations can be wholly blamed for violence in America.
My response to SLJ is, who does?
Better crafted gun regulations can be part of a broader overall effort to reduce violence and gun deaths in our society.

“This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety ... While we recognize that assault-weapon legislation will not stop all assault-weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals.”
“I do not believe in taking away the right of the citizen for sporting, for hunting and so forth, or for home defense. But I do believe that an AK-47, a machine gun, is not a sporting weapon or needed for defense of a home.”
“Certain forms of ammunition have no legitimate sporting, recreational, or self-defense use and thus should be prohibited.”
Damn liberal Hollywood elites

In 2010 10,228 people died from alcohol-related car accidents. Applying this logic should we ban alcohol and car accidents too? I'm all for more thorough background checks and longer waiting periods unless authorized by a judge in unusual circumstances, but we should not ban a weapon. There are no numbers that tell how many lives are saved by them, only the numbers of those that aren't.
Would you say we have a nationwide epidemic of planes crashing into towers and trucks being used as bombs?
Trying to use singular events to absolve blame from an instrument of death that is being used to kill people daily is like comparing apples to rhinoceros sh!t.
When 10,000 people start dying every year from kamikaze airplanes and truck explosions like they do gun violence we can have the conversation about whether planes and trucks are the issue.
I am more interested in resolving issues that actually exist.

So, do you blame the airplane as well as the hijackers when they flew it into the Twin Towers in NYC on 9/11?
Do you blame the truck and McVeigh for the bombings in Oklahoma City?
If not, then your arguement of blaming a gun for what a person decided to do is a knee-jerk and rikiculous assertion.
Arguing for consistent checks and processes to buy guns in all states....can get my head around.
Banning a particular gun type....no.
Yes somewhat, that is why we have so much security around airports and why the cock pit is on lock down. (btw I think you mean bomb with McVeigh)
Guns are weapons made with the purpose to kill. We ban nukes because they cause so much damage, as well as missiles, rocket launchers and grenades. I think high max clips should be on that list as well as some guns.
