The girlfriend of the dead guy said they were just drunk and stupid.
It turns out the shooter had a pretty good arrest record, so it's safe to assume he was not a legal gun owner. But is there really that much difference? Don't legal gun owners get "drunk and stupid" too?
What's lacking is proper gun control which would lower gun availability to unfit people. FFL gun dealers and their clients have to be constrained by law to be more responsible with their weapons ensuring the guns aren't diverted into the black market. Folks who want a gun have to undergo better screening about their criminal and mental health history. In the home guns must be secured so they're not so vulnerable to theft.
