I’m sure this will never happen to the children of people who own many guns, not in a million years.

First, you don’t know how many guns the victims’ parents own.
Second, if if they owned many guns, the parents could have not helped their kids from being murdered, because they weren’t present in the school.
Third, and most important of all – The murderer’s mother owned several guns, which were used to murder these kids and their teachers.

Guns kill.
In fact, that’s the one thing they’re intended to do.
