They suck all the oxygen out of the room for other approaches or viewpoints.
Because they do not care for any other view except their own. Feinstein even stated on TV recently that NO law could have prevented what happened.

We need to stop blaming the object - we don't move to ban cars, even though 50,000 a year die from drunk drivers; we also don't move to ban alcohol (that lesson has been already learned) even though deaths, child/spouse abuse and other issues arise from it. We blame the folks who did the crime, not the object. Start THERE.
"I believe that people have a right to decide their own destinies; people own themselves. I also believe that, in a democracy, government exists because (and only so long as) individual citizens give it a 'temporary license to exist'—in exchange for a promise that it will behave itself. In a democracy, you own the government—it doesn't own you."- Frank Zappa
