Gun background checks won’t help

I do not understand how doing background checks on anyone purchasing a firearm is going to prevent someone from committing a mass murder.

Adam Lanzo took his mother’s guns and killed her. He used her guns to kill 26 human beings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

A background check would not have prevented him from doing what he did. He used his mother’s guns.

Anyone who is intent on getting guns to kill other people can find a way to get the guns. Background checks are not going to prevent people from getting guns to do evil things.
