No one is holding you criminally responsible for the actions of mass shooters.
Yes they are.
That's why the background checks, and ever other gun regulation.
Me and every other gun owners RIGHT has been whittled away because of things we have never done.
THAT IS A FACT.
Well, if these mass shooters give lawful, responsible gun owners a bad name -- maybe some kind of self-policing, self-regulation might be in order? Take care of one own's house and those inside it?
I'm also aware the 2nd Amendment wasn't written to give would-be rebels an excuse to open fire on their own government as some far-right gun-nuts suggest. In fact one of the first uses of this well-regulated militia was to help Washington squash the Whiskey Rebellion.

You want us to go around and arbitrarily decide who is nuts , see if they own guns and then institutionalize them?

They are trying to pass reasonable regulations to prevent the people who DO want to commit crimes with guns from getting them.
BECAUSE THEY'RE FREAKING CRIMINALS!
How about out reach programs, gun safety classes, public service announcements, working with agencies and politicians to come up with some actual solutions?
