Gun control isn't thorough. Background checks tend to fail.

I've been thinking about pursuing a PhD in Information Tech and hoping to exploring urban data as a broad area and refine that.
This made me think about mass shooting as a result of land usage and it's occurred to me that not enough people point to it as a potential resolution to a lot of mass shootings.

I'm hoping to research more on the topic but I was wondering if anyone had any good papers or research they've read through on gun violence and land usage/urban planning.

I hypothesize that America's mass shooting problem is exacerbated by it's auto-dependency and would like to research the informational technology in place that allows policy makers to examine that policy (by policy makers I mean the research staff, not the talking heads).
