Okay, I maybe see the disconnect here.

This weapon ban/restriction legislation went to full speed after Lanza used stolen firearms. Other murderers used stolen firearms before that. Properly securing firearms in the future could prevent theft resulting in such crimes in the future.

I took the plurals, us and we, to include the theft victims of these crimes as well, not just our fine GT members.

Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.
