It's too easy for Americans to get guns. Not that I think making it harder would have prevented this.
Ultimately firearms make murders easy for people who aren't physically imposing or don't have the guts to really get their hands dirty. It's a device with a switch that makes killing possible with little effort.
I don't think firearms are directly the issue. There honestly isn't much direct action one can take to prevent this. Beyond perhaps individual responsibility and noticing when someone has mental health issues. Even that is hard since if you're thinking of killing off a room of school children you're likely withdrawn and not interacting socially enough to be noticed. There really isn't an easy answer to this.
