Because school shootings suck. In fact, anyone getting shot sucks a substantial amount no matter where it is.

Shooting is a perfectly safe recreational activity if done correctly and as much as I would defend the sport of target shooting I would have to defend the recreational side of target shooting.
To get a gun in Japan, first, you have to attend an all-day class and pass a written test, which are held only once per month. You also must take and pass a shooting range class. Then, head over to a hospital for a mental test and drug test (Japan is unusual in that potential gun owners must affirmatively prove their mental fitness), which you'll file with the police. Finally, pass a rigorous background check for any criminal record or association with criminal or extremist groups, and you will be the proud new owner of your shotgun or air rifle. Just don't forget to provide police with documentation on the specific location of the gun in your home, as well as the ammo, both of which must be locked and stored separately. And remember to have the police inspect the gun once per year and to re-take the class and exam every three years.

Especially since that is something you can actually do about by for example donating money or fighting for a reform of the patent system in the EU so cheaper medicine becomes possible.
