Preventing Mass Shootings

Mass shootings such as the Las Vegas shooting on 2017-10-01 with over 500 people hit are commonplace. No other country but the USA puts up with this. I asked Americans why they do. They say the second amendment.

I looked up the second amendment. It says A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. That’s it. Nowhere does it say you have to aid and abet lunatics and terrorists to perform mass shootings. It does not even guarantee the right to own a weapon, just use a musket in the service of a state militia.

Why would anyone in their right mind put up with this situation?
