So, thus, in your view, the problem is "gun-culture". I'm not sure exactly what that is, but since guns have been a constant in US history since day one, and since guns are more highly proscribed and regulated now than at any time in US history, I can't logically conclude that it is the primary variable, if it's even relevant at all.
Fifty years ago, when semi-automatic rifles with 30 round magazines could be bought by mail order by anyone, no background checks at all and no age restrictions - we didn't have nutjobs committing massacres at schools. So...
However, you don't mention at all the issue of involuntary institutionalization for mental instability (or rather, the lack of it). This IS the relevant variable. The figure today is far lower than 50 years ago. Trying to prevent certain people from acquiring any sort of weapon is not viable, especially since any efforts to do so inevitably deprive non-dangerous people of their rights.
