Consider this: SOME of the American public want tighter gun control. The mere existence of an organization such as the NRA presupposes your statement. If all of the US public wanted tight controls, then an the NRA would not exist because there would not be a need to defend the 2nd amendment. The NRA is funded by memberships and donations. Their goal is not to pass laws. Their goal is to uphold the 2nd amendment. They do this through their lobby groups, legal foundation and public awareness campaigns. Their most recent (50 years or so) political orientation is a direct response to the attack on private citizens ability to keep and use firearms.  I think it is safe to say that no one wants to see this horrific shootings continue, no matter what side of the argument you are on. Having a rational argument is a different story.
