It is idiots like you who can't think beyond their own pathetic paranoid posturing and fantasies. It is not gun ownership which is the problem but gun availability and use. If you keep your guns in a locked cabinet inside your house at all times only taking them out to use at a gun club or hunting trip then go for it. But the real problem with guns is not guns in the hands of criminals but guns in the hands of the average person who cannot in the aggregate be relied upon to be rational and responsible at all times. Don't blame shooting incidents on the mentally ill: blame the easy availability of guns to everyone including you. We don't know who the mentally ill are but we do know who you are, and in the aggregate you can't be trusted never to use a gun in a fit of anger or unjustified fear. It is an undisputed fact that the easy availability of guns dramatically increases the murder rate and don't tell me all such killings or even most are perpetrated by criminals or the mentally ill. It is YOU I worry about.
