How come no one wants to talk about people getting guns illegally?

Every time there is a mass shooting people always want to say we need more gun control laws. People,think laws will prevent these shootings. People just assume these shooters got there guns legally from a store. Geting a gun from the store is not the only way to get a gun. You can steal it, buy it illegally or borrow it from some one. No one ever talks about this on the news why

    The majority of illegally attained guns in the US are stolen from legal gun owners. The problem is that so many gun owners do very, very little to secure their guns, and instead treat them like display pieces. Let me say bluntly that if you have your rifles sitting in a glass-door cabinet then you should have your right to own firearms taken away.

    And yes, I own guns, and yes, I own a goddamn safe.

    It doesn't fit their narrative. As long as they are do "something" they don't care if it works or not.

    Because the mass shooters always legally purchased their guns.

    You are right. There are hundreds of thousands of ILLEGAL guns in the US. How are they gonna be controlled? Not saying maybe some tighter gun laws would be a bad idea, though.

    But you wouldn't be able to steal it or borrow if the wasn't someone from whom to steal it or borrow it. Gun control doesn't just keep the person getting a gun from a store from getting the gun. It also stops whomever would have stolen or borrowed a gun from that person. Keeping any person from getting a gun legally keeps another person from getting that gun illegally from the first person. Even if a person steals or borrows a gun, someone had to buy it originally.

    The problem isn't that people don't talk about illegal firearms just that gun advocates don't listen.
