Well, criminals don't get their guns through legal means anyway, so more laws won't help one bit there.
Since the Virginia Tech. shooting, the police do NOT "sit outside trying to figure out what do to." Most police departments are now trained in "active shooter" situations and have action plans in place.
"Vastly expanded mental health services" opens up a whole new ball o' wax, with major issues of personal freedom and rights... Three of the most recent shooters would have passed every check you can currently think of.
"Better security at schools" ... Until the schools are protected, guarded and look just like maximum security prisons, they can not say they've tried everything to protect them.
It would be great if "something" could be done, but as with many things, the devil's in the details.
