Fair enough. I think my main point is that blaming a gun is not a valid argument, while saying a decline in religion (not as a sole reason, but part of it) is a valid argument. I think @Royal27 and @Red Leg have some good insights - it has more to do with some larger societal issues.
Also there are several countries that have higher instances mass shootings than the US even though the have a lower % of folks that see religion as important - France being the prime example
