The second amendment has jack shit to do with this. If someone wants to kill people bad enough then they will get a weapon somehow.

And none of these are before 2000
Why do we believe that the government/authorities are able to stop so many terrorists that really want to harm us, and yet have no faith in the system to protect us from from random people living in the country who want to kill people? Maybe the won't stop it 100% of the time, but even if they can stop it 50% of the time, we would save a lot of lives. But..second amendment.. ?
Mmm.. This guy had criminal history and was active online.
Dylan Roof (A month ago.. Shooting in the church) had a website.
Also, a terrorist has a lot more financial backing, obsesses over hurting people and is far more organised. Still the system manages to keep us safe from them, because laws help them to do so. Joe Shmo has fewer resources at his disposal. The only advantage is that he lives in our neighborhood.. And we allow him to walk to a shop and buy guns.
Second amendment is one of a broad range of potential solutions to mass shooter issues, but the statistical rate of mass shooting deaths is incredibly low. Fed statistics say that more people are sent to the emergency room by their bathroom fixtures than mass shooters, and many times over more people are killed by ladders.
