I think you're incorrect, I believe the majority of Americans see the hypocrisy in one calling for strict gun laws but than utilizing those very guns for protection.

JFK/Reagan, notice after those incidents security detail has been ramped up and no president has been assassinated since? Yet children and schools get shot up, yet security has not yet been ramped up for them...Curious to the outcome of removing security from the Whitehouse and posting "gun free zone" signs.

Absolutely nothing with stop the next mass killing, only a good guy with a gun. Washington already knows this and applies it everyday.
