Connecticut had a background check and this shooter didn't want to wait for that to be done.
In this case, it wouldn't have worked. It would be more that we need a way to make access to another's guns more difficult. Saw an article on how smart technology could do this.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
