However I feel like at this point one never knows if and when they will fall victim to the next mass shooting where 20, 30, 50+ people are gunned down with relative ease because the tool they are using makes it that easy.
What about mass killings via homemade bombs, vehicles, or other means? No one can foresee or predict every possibility that someone bent on killing people can dream up.

Banning an object does nothing to stop the root cause. That is putting a bandaid on a severed artery - it never has good results.
