Such happenings are not so unusual in the USA - unfortunately,

Japanese and other people often ask "Why do Americans like guns so much ?

Well, some people in the U.S feel safer from crime if they a gun to protect themselves.  Such people believe that more guns means less crime.  (They believe that the bad guys will be afraid to attack or rob someone with a gun.)

There are about 300,000,000 guns in America, almost the same as the population.  But most of these guns are owned by 34% of American people - Not all the Americans have guns.          (G.K)
