This is about guns easily being accessed by people with mental problems.

This is no accusation towards you but is there a bit of a variation of a No True Scotsman fallacy in here? Those who use guns to kill loads of people must have mental issues. It's a bit late to say, "Well, we need to stop these people with mental issues getting guns because it's only people with mental issues doing the killing." Howabout we stop people getting guns? Clearly we're not very good at preventing guns from getting to the wrong people so let's cut off the supply.
