    Guns are more deadly than knives. If you are going to do it on a situational basis, then one could make the claim that in certain situations banana peels are more dangerous, or even bare-hands, when compared to guns.

    Fact is that a moron with a gun is more dangerous than a moron with a knife.
    This moron was purdy deadly with a knife.

    Yeah, but that source is arguing that it "wouldn't happen it Texas" insinuating that if the moron was juxtaposed to guys with guns, this wouldn't have happened.

    It doesn't make a **** what that source is arguing. The fact is, a moron with a knife killed 7 and wounded 19.

    What happened to the, "they'll rush him and take him down", argument?

    That was never my argument.

    Mine is that a person with a gun is more likely to cause more damage than a person with a knife.

    It's simple apdst, simple.

    "more likely", yes. But, not guaranteed. It's all I've been saying all along. reading is fundamental.

    Here's another one in a school:
    8 children die in Japan school stabbing | World news | The Guardian
    A man with a history of mental illness forced his way into a primary school in Japan and unleashed a frenzied knife attack that left eight children dead and 19 others injured.

    I was just saying that guns are more dangerous than knives.

    Americans sure are strange folk, the slightest upset and out come the guns.
    See that you bear this in mind at all times when addressing us, preferably in a respectful, quite tone.

    Agreed, but the USA is supposedly a civilized nation whereas Russia is basically peopled by thieves and barbarians.
