Sure guns are a tool, but every tool has a purpose and a gun's purpose is to kill. Just like a die grinder is more effective than sandpaper, a .45 caliber handgun is more effective at killing than a .22. Pretending that guns aren't correlated to deaths is silly; the only effective gun control is caliber control.

I own a .22 rifle with an 8 round magazine, and I have had to confront a person with it to protect my vehicle. I didn't shoot him, but if I would have had to my rifle would have sufficed. Caliber, handgun, and magazine size restrictions are effective controls of gun homicides. Caliber and magazine size restrictions are especially pertinent in mass shooting scenarios, even though those account for a small fraction of gun deaths.

The largest contributor to gun deaths by far is suicides, at around 60%. Homicides make up about 37%. Gun control can be effective but is really just a bandaid to the underlying issues facing society. Investment in education (especially in inner cities) and mental health resources (especially those geared towards students) will reduce crime/violence and improve society as a whole.
