Not neceserily. For example the situation about the Florida guy. If guns were illegal, there would be a better chance that he wouldn't have a gun, in which case, the victin would've had a better chance of surviving (say, if he brought a knife, he could've ran away etc.).
Yes, gun is a tool, just like a knife, baseball bat and so on, but it is a tool that is harder to escape death from.
