No, actually the fact which should put Aurora into perspective is this:

Deaths from mass shootings (which kill 4 or more) per year in the US: 163
(from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/20/dark-knight-shooting_n_1689505.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular, not my favorite source, but data is data)

People falling/drowning in their bathtub per year: 314 (for year 2000, appears to be about normal-http://danger.mongabay.com/injury_death.htm)

So people might want to consider the fact that bathtubs are considerably more deadly that mass shootings.

Why We Should Swallow Our Vomit And Vote Straight Ticket

I’m just here to stir the muck ....

Extrapolating from your facts, the salient difference between firearms and soap is that there is no constitutionally protected right—or obligation—to bathe one’s self/skanky a**.
Of course this might explain the olfactory pungeance of OWS, their parents and the like/ilk.
They may use your argument to say that they fear bath tubs and shower stalls.
As a result when they attempt (once again) to burden our 2nd Amendment rights, we will have to pass a law requiring that stinking hippies of all ages, stripes and socio-economic classes adhere to a certain minimum standard of bodily hygiene.
In order to do that we’ll need a A GOP congress and executive branch.
Admittedly, there is no guarantee that a GOP congress and executive branch will be conservative, but I tender for your consideration that it is more likely that Republicans will have higher sanitary standards than Democrats (to wit, Mrs. Barney Frank) and require similar standards from others.
I’m sure that Mitt Romney, as life-like as he is or can be, doesn’t stink up a room like, say, a Reverend Al Sharpton. I mean, they don’t let just anyone try on those celestial undergarments; I’m sure you have to pass some sort of `sniff test’ to become a Mormon bishop
So that’s the choice: a stinking Obama and his anarchic, odoriferous fellow dhimmicrats, or a hygienic GOP and your 2nd Amendment rights.
