It would take a second for a strong man to kill a weak person with bare hands. (Would you prohibit strong hands as a visible threat?] Without a weak person having a gun, they are at a mercy of any criminal, and have no deterrent.

As for mass murders, one can just drive a car into a crowd. Now, how many people die from mass murderers? And how many people die from eating unhealthy food from MacDonalds, smoking, including secondary, etc.? Bearing guns is a constitutional right, and mass murders are probably the case of deaths number one thousand something. Why not take care of the top of the list of deaths first, especially when it doesn't violate anybody's constitutional rights? Just because mass murders sound more dangerous and look more photogenic?
