Are Guns the Issue?

After 26 people gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Stephen Zunes wrote on Facebook:

In China this morning, a young mentally-disturbed man walked into a school ready to do violence. Not able to procure a gun, he stabbed 23 people, 22 of them children. All survived.
In the United States this morning, a young mentally-disturbed man walked into a school ready to do violence. With easy access to guns in this country, he is able to kill 26 people, 18 of them children.
Why do people still deny that guns are the issue?

Something to think about.
