It is hard to pretend that this matter isn't one that also intersects with the matter of access to firearms. LGBTQ+ folks land on both sides of this issue, and groups like the gay gun advocacy group Pink Pistols are likely to disagree with me on this, but it matters that someone with the shooter's background—self-identified affiliations with terrorist organizations, a history of domestic violence, previous investigation by federal law enforcement—had little trouble acquiring a firearm designed to replicate the weapons used by U.S. service members. I know that there is nothing I can say that is going to change people's minds more than the now-routine massacres that take place across the nation, but for those who are already outraged, don't just passively support gun law reform: call and write your elected officials, from your city council member to your U.S. Senators, and tell them you support making access to such weapons difficult, if not impossible, for people like the shooter. Don't vote for candidates who do nothing. Even if you don't support this sort of legislative change, at least look at how retailers contribute to a culture of violence, and consider whether you are comfortable buying your sneakers and video games at the largest retail firearms dealer in the nation.
