Agreed, but just to play the tinfoil hand, many bills aren't written by elected officials. Theyre written by lobbyists and just regular people who know how to get the format and wording all legal-like. You can write a bill. Anyone can.
A plausible conspiracy would look more like this:
1) An anti-gun group scours the inter-webs for depressed, psychotic or otherwise irritable people they see as on the verge and contact them.
2) "knowing" that what the country needs is another push, they goad the tortured soul into following through with whatever sick fantasy he/she has in mind.
3) Having already written a bill, they wait for the national tragedy to unfold and following cries of reform.
4) They present the anti-gun bill to the nearest government official that shares their views.
I say it's "plausible" because it doesn't require a shady, Illuminati-style shadow government, devoid of morals that somehow escaped public oversight.
It only requires a shady group of individuals, devoid of morals and we have plenty of those just wandering around.
