    I beg to differ.

    A car can take out many people at once without needing much accuracy.... provided said targets are in a centralized location.



    Besides.... these are 5 and 6 year olds we are talking about.....

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Exactly, in a centralized location. A gun is still more effective.

    But it's the one you mentioned...so it's the one I responded to.

    You...bringing up your imagined "Things We Hate" list is nothing more than a non-response. Try addressing what I said to you.

    The attack in the Henan province village of Chengping happened shortly before 8 a.m., said a police officer from Guangshan county, where the village is located.

    No motive was given for the stabbings, which echo a string of similar assaults against schoolchildren in 2010 that killed nearly 20 and wounded more than 50. The most recent such attack took place in August, when a knife-wielding man broke into a middle school in the southern city of Nanchang and stabbed two students before fleeing."

    I agree, but people are already talking about it. Why not chastise them as well?

    Also, you are correct that knives are effective too. However, you don't hear about school knifings all over the country right now, it's school shootings. If knives were on equal territory with guns we would see more of them. My point is that guns are more effective.

    I don't think guns should be banned, for the record. I think more needs to be done to prevent mentally ill people from getting their hands on them so easily, though.

    On what grounds should this guy have been denied a gun?
    How would "common sense gun control" have stopped this?
