@snow Yes, but the number of overall murders and violent crimes will go down. So will be a good thing overall.

Let me try to use an analogy to help you realize why your logic is self-defeating. The following statement is technically true yet misleading for the same reason as your own:

"After people started receiving vaccines the number of vaccine related deaths increased!"

The reason it is deceiving is that despite being true it ignores the fact that it is cherry picked and that the real statistic we care about is overall death and not vaccine related. The number of deaths from vaccines will be far less than the number of people saved by vaccines, much like with guns.

@snow You may not but if you dont care about people dieing then any argument about mass shootings is pointless too

@freemo
I am interested about the psychology about mass shooters.

@snow Then you arent actually against the freedom to own guns by the sound of it, just curious about the psychology of shooters. Fine by me.
