Perhaps the loud noise more than anything else? And recoil doesn't hurt with most weapons, unless you're shoulder firing a 12 gauge and get it in the nose because you didn't have it pulled in to your shoulder. Then yeah, you'll feel that. But 5.56? It's a gentle tap.

There's a lot of lunatics everywhere, most people(read: pretty much everyone without high level military training, not your average grunt, a soldier with training dedicated specifically to long range rifle usage) wouldn't have the training to fire a rifle at that range without the kick dislodging their shoulder from their socket, let alone accurately(accounting for little things like bullet drop, range, wind speed, wind direction, etc).
In addition, the amount of back round checks, money required for registration, and locating(they're not exactly common) and cost of purchasing one of these rifles is insane(as it should be). Honestly, you could save significantly more lives by changing who can drive what cars on the road than changing firearm regulation.

It's because we have a large population, which means higher chance of people with mental illness, which means higher chance of them getting a hold of a weapon (most likely buying off the street, black market, or stealing one, not legally obtaining one) and then using it for whatever reason. People forget that we still have a problem with illegal arms dealing in the US because we honestly can't crack down on them. The main reason being that every time we get close, something changes and we're back at the start. Another reason is because our government and it's branches of organizations are corrupt as all Hell and doesn't give a shit about the issue enough to actually put an effort into it.
There is still the issue of gun shops and their background checks, which vary from state to state, but that's a different issue entirely. I know here in PA you can get small arms easily enough, but that's because we're made up of a large number of hunters.
But hey, I'm a guy on the internet spouting out (wrong) opinions. You don't need to take my word for any of this.
