"letting Russia take over as the world's policeman"
Don't be ridiculous. Russia has no funds/resources to be the world's policeman. Their "carrier" barely managed to get to Syria a week (?) ago. One of its aircraft fell into the ocean this week :) They can huff and puff, but they can only occasionally blow down a small stick house or two.
I'm pretty sure all their military campaigns of the last couple of decades were mainly aimed at livetraining their personnel while getting rid of the obsolete ammo. Their nukes and the "crazy Ivans" image they're diligently cultivating are the only things that are keeping that country whole. I'm also pretty sure they're aware that won't stop the Chinese from colonizing Siberia peacefully and assimilating its minuscule population.

"The people that do this are the problem, not the firearms. "

I hope, you - as an IT professional - understand what the most efficient way of solving a problem at hand is. Otherwise, I hope you're an IT researcher.

"There is not a single case of these mass shootings where the shooter just took a gun from someone and then committed the crime."

But there are multiple cases of children getting hold of guns, which you - being an IT professional well trained in logical thinking and analysis - undoubtedly considered, but disregarded, didn't you?

"You could remove all guns and mass killings will still occur.

Mix some bleach and ammonia and throw it around. Put together an explosive. Drive a car over the sidewalk. Poison the water supply. Release weaponized viral agents into a high population area."

More brilliant logic. Do you even try to analyse your arguments before producing them or it's just a knee jerk reaction now?
