Florida Nightclub Shooting - 1 Dead 5 Wounded

The gun crowd generally opposes all gun laws, regardless of how reasonable or obviously beneficial. Allowing guns in bars is a good example.  In response to stories like this one, the usual responses would be offered.

1. Most shootings happen in gun-free zones.  If you prohibit the good guys from having guns in a certain place they'll be sitting ducks.

2. The guy in this story was obviously a criminal.  Lawful gun owners don't do stuff like that.

3. The gun is only a tool, the problem is the person.

4. Constitutionally-protected, natural rights are not to be restricted.  That's what "shall not be infringed" means.

5. and my favorite: Freedom has its price.

Have I forgotten any?
