The assertion above is not quite true. The civilian-disarmament complex will never waste time blaming the tool rather than the actor while apologizing for the actor (unless that actor confirms their deeply-held bigotry). Why else would they want to restrict the rights of the countless people who didn’t do anything to harm anyone?
To those who would like to restrict the God-given rights of the people to bear the tools of their choosing, I have one thing to say…
If they outlaw lightsabers, only outlaws will have lightsabers.
