Really? I'm not an historian or anything, and I'll agree that humans were being goddamn horrible to one another for ages before the first firearms, but gun-related mass shooting have not been taking place forever. For the first couple hundred years of guns, reloading was like a process. Soldiers would shoot at each other and then spend the next ten minutes stuffing powder and balls (what?) down their musket-holes. Fortunately, everyone back then was gentlemanly enough to wait for the other side to re-load, but the Revolutionary War must have been bo-ring (source: history).
As for the future, there's something bleakly optimistic about kicking the can a million years down the road. I mean, holy shit, a million years?

If a hundred years from now, or a thousand or a million we, as a species, are still arguing about whether or not the second amendment was written with blasters and disruptors in mind, we've got bigger problems. But whatever, just because it's been a problem for a long time doesn't mean we shouldn't even bother trying to do something about it.
