Just like those job application questions: "Have you ever been arrested? Explain below." "No, never been caught."
You see the UBC thing breakdown every time a mass killing is perpetrated by someone who "legally" bought a gun. Sometimes it’s through error in the process and sometimes it’s because "the system" was never used to process a whacko. Take the Walmart shooter, who “legally” bought a gun hours before his killing spree - the gun control advocates are on the “mandatory waiting period” warpath again. Rand Gun Policy Expert Tool takes input from 173 so-called gun violence experts and finds enacting a 10-day waiting period for all firearms sales would have virtually zero impact on firearms homicides.
Support for new gun laws always surges after a mass shooting but the laws passed in states/fed have very little impact, if any, on outcomes.

I think that a lot of people know this, but I'm going to reiterate anyway.
Gun control has NOTHING to do with crime, dead kids, violence or public health. It has to do with control.
The left is no longer traditionally liberal. They are Marxists. Socialists. Communists. Before BLM sanitized their web site, the three, grifting founders labeled themselves as Marxists, right there on the page. (Funny how Marxists were too willing to line their pockets with all that cash that poured in from all of those guilty, stupid white people.
They understand that guns give the population the ability to say "no" to their goal to turn the US into a communist state. Mao was the one who said that "political power grows out of the barrel of a gun."
If they could, Marxist Democrats would ban every single gun in civilian hands, and would confiscate all of them. Even Diane Feinstein said that her best wet, juicy dream would be "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in."
But the population is not willing to go along with this. So they chip away at our rights, a tiny bit by tiny bit. They take every opportunity to make owning a gun expensive, a hassle, dangerous, and illegal if you don't do it right.
They can't just admit that they're doing this because they want the citizenry to bend over, spread the cheeks, and beg for it like good slaves. They can't admit what their real goal is, so they come up with a slightly reasonable excuse of why we need gun control. They bleat that it's about the children. Violence. Public health. Healthcare costs. These reasons don't even have to stand up to careful scrutiny. As long as they sound reasonable, the left pushes them.
If the left gave a damn about crime, they wouldn't be letting criminals out of jail, declining to prosecute, people, undermining and defunding police, and dropping or downgrading charges.
Now 80% of Democrats are clueless about this. They are what Stalin's minions called "useful idiots". They are the sheep that go along with whatever their leaders tell them is correct. They don't have time to do homework, research or reading, so they drink the kool aid, and parrot the propaganda.
It's the 20% who are leading this drive who are the evil ones. They know the goal is to disarm America, and they are leading the faithful toward continuing to work to bring this to a successful completion.
