If you have 4 firearms and they still won't do the job, why the hell did you buy them in the first place?
Why does a car collector not stop at four cars for his collection? Surely those four are sufficient for his transportation needs.

Pass a gun law that criminals will abide to and you won’t have anymore shootings.

You can own a gun if you want or not, that is your choice, but where I draw the line is with you wanting to take that choice away from me. Go deal with the real issue, mental illness, something all these mass shooters have in common, and then deal with all criminals that do not care spit for laws controlling gun ownership, once you do that, guns will not longer e so scary for you. One last thought, not all the guns I own are for defensive purposes, though all of them can be used for, but most are for hunting purposes, something else I am sure you have little knowledge or experience with.
Your Rights end right where My Rights begin, do not even think about trying to take My Constitutional Rights away, I promise you will not like how that works out.
Australia had a mentally illness mass shooter kill 35 people. Because they weren't morons, they realized that there is always going to be mentally ill people and its much easier to get rid of guns then monitor people. so they got rid of guns. This was in 1996. They haven't had a single spree shooting since.

Wouldn't have to be mandatory. Can be Optional. I was a student once, following 9/11.

I'd have been more at comfort knowing a teacher was armed and able to defend the class room I was in. Following the first lockdown drill my school had, I asked the same thing. The gasp hear round the world in that auditorium, must have resonated some common sense to the admin and the superintendent as the following year we got 2 NY state troopers in. Student resource officers. And they were armed.
What are you talking about, you were claiming you were in a school during a mass shooting? And I don't even know what "we got 2 NY state troopers in" is supposed to mean but I seriously doubt if there are 2 state troopers in each of the 4,468 public schools in New York State, especially when you consider the fact that there are only 4,900 state troopers in the entire state.

They are part of a violent sect and will always find a way to murder or maim.

Lockdown drills followed 9/11 as there was a notion of a school shooting/bombing threat to be committed following the jet attacks.

Instead of getting teachers armed, our school had 2 state troopers. If I have to go digging for a year book to prove it I will if you want...

Take a nap sleepy.

But did they pass a law banning food, cars, trucks, and knives too? Or is that just a patently moronic argument for reasons that should be so obvious that a child could easily comprehend?

Only one third of the perpetrators of mass shootings between 2009 and 2016 were legally prohibited from owning a gun. Now tell what your new law is going to do to stop the 2/3 who apparently were legally armed. I'll be right here waiting...

Snark doesn't help your arguments, but if that's all you've got go for it.

I don't care if your school had 100 troopers there are not enough troopers in the entire state to deploy them to every school and if they aren't present in the school they are not going to stop a mass shooter.

If you’re shooting people whether you bought it legally or not you’re a criminal. Again pass a law a criminal will abide to, because passing gun laws on good people is fruitless. Which a lot of you anti gun folks want to do, for what reason, is boggling.
