    I am not sure they are any stranger than any other folk. They do tend to have more access to firearms though.

    Crime happens everywhere. I just hope that this can be resolved without getting anyone killed.

    Ukranian I think. The point I am trying to make here is that if your unbalanced you can do considerably more damage with a gun than you can with a knife or for that matter a spoon.

    That's debatable.

    Its debateable that you cant do more damage with a gun than a knife. Imagine if the Columbine murderers had knives not guns might the result have been less bloodshed ?

    There may have been more bloodshed had they knives vice guns. At least the gun shots gave some kind of warning throughout the building. With a knife attack, no one would have known anything till it was too late.

    IMO, the only difference between a knife and a gun, is skill level. Guns require less skill. A well trained knifesman could probably do more damage in as much time as Average Joe with a gun.
