1: These people start the whole article with an anecdote. That in itself is a fallacy, plus the appeal to emotion involved with telling this lady's tragic story.
2: There should be nothing stopping people from researching much of anything, that includes the effects of guns in a society.
3: There can and will be arguments of gun=bad for as long as people want to blame inanimate objects instead of people. Gun violence is a symptom of violence in general, which happens be there guns or no. It will, without guns, be bat violence, knife violence, speeding car violence, or whatever other next convenient tool is around. There will be costs to that, too. The problem isn't "gun violence" because it's wrapped into violence in general, though admittedly guns make it easier to do some types of damage than other types of weapons.
This article is trying to take someone's story, slap it in with some figures, and blame it all on an inanimate object instead of the individual wielding the inanimate object, or the social pressures that drive the behavior.
