Dead kids are a good thing.
Only is if happens before they pop out of a vagina apparently for Liberals. For me, it is not a "good" thing, it is just a reality of a free society. We have people free to make really bad decisions in life. Of course, they face the consequences for their actions but is a choice on their part.
And before you start blaming guns, why doesn't Switzerland have this problem? They have automatic weapons in pretty much every household and no mass shootings. So, to blame this solely on guns or even certain types of guns is to deny the data.
Dead kids are best viewed as the price of living in a free society.
Yes, that is the price.
Only slave countries like Australia, Germany, and Japan don't routinely have their children killed in school.

You are crying like a madman over 17 dead kids. Yes, it is tragic. However, there are like 20,000 other people dead every year and a vast, vast majority are killed in one-off crimes that you don't seem to give a rip about. Why is that?
There are 300,000,000 guns in this country and only a small fraction are used in crimes - yet, you want to ban them all. If I were to follow you logic, I would be much more success in drastically reducing the murder rate in this country by simply locking up every 12-28 year old black male before they have a chance to commit a murder. They represent about 2% of the population but account for about 50% of all murder. Of course, this a nonsensical position to take because we would never think of depriving freedom from 2% of the population to protect 10,000 murder victims each year. Yet, you want to deprive freedom from about 50% of the population to stop like 100 deaths per year through "mass shootings".
As to Australia, Germany, and Japan, the reason why they have low crime can be linked to the fact that they are very homogeneous societies. Once Germany started to let in immigrants, etc, the crime skyrocket (rape, etc). Yet, your solution is to let in as many people as possible (immigrants are 2x as likely to kill someone as native born and about 10x more likely than a native born white person). But, all you can focus on is 'mass killings' vs. the daily slaughter in our cities.
