As horrible as things like these are there's nothing you can do to stop them. If we melted down all the guns, these nutcases would use knives or bombs or pointy sticks.
No shit? Perhaps we should ask the Chinese kids if they want to trade places with the dead American ones?RB wrote:Just because nobody died in the Chinese knife attack doesn't mean lives weren't ruined. Knife wounds leave horrific permanent injuries.
So you're saying the Chinese dude didn't have it in him to kill those kids? He just fancied going on a maiming spree? And I suppose if he'd had a gun he'd just have shot them in the knees? Cool, ok then. We should probably start thinking about legalising personal ownership of biological weapons and nuclear devices then. They kill less people than guns, and they're basically harmless in responsible hands. It's only the crazy people we need to worry about, and if they really want to kill they'll find a way to do so regardless.RB wrote:I'm not saying guns are less lethal but if people want to kill people, they will do it by any means.
