I think conflating all gun homicides together is less than productive. Do I think if it was harder for folks to get guns that it would impact many types of gun deaths? Yes. Do I think it would really stop these psychopaths that do the mass shootings? Well, I think France, Canada, and England tell us it won't. The Boston and London bombings also tell us guns are not even needed for mass killings.
So pointing at San B and saying gun control would have stopped this is probably wrong. Pointing at your typical Saturday night shooting and saying gun control might have stopped that is far more likely to be correct.
