    Train station knife attack kills 27, injures 109 in China

    So, other countries with stricter gun control are safer as many have suggested?
    BEIJING — China’s official Xinhua News Agency says at least 27 people are dead and 109 injured after a group of knife-wielding men attacked a train station in southwestern China.
    Xinhua did not provide more details about the Saturday evening attack at the Kunming Railway Station in Yunnan province, and the attackers were not identified. Kunming city police did not have immediate information to release.
    Local television station K6 says that several of the attackers were shot by police and that victims were being transported to local hospitals.
    Photos circulating online showed scattered luggage and bodies lying on the floor in blood.
    The motive behind the attack was not immediately clear, but China has seen a number of mass stabbings and other attacks carried out by people bearing grudges against society. washingtontimes.com
    Take away one weapon and criminals will use another. Stop focusing on the tool.

    Speedy recovery to all victims.

    Just imagine if each of the men had a stick of dynamite. I guess that is why I can't buy a canon at Walmart.

    What, your Walmart doesn't carry cannons? I thought you were from Texas!

    believe it or not...even Red State Texas has gun restrictions. Just like the one on a 18-21 CC law that NRA challenged.

    Oh no, let's ban knives! As I keep saying, banning guns won't work, the crazies will just use another weapon and cause just as much damage.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What an outrageous concept that women 18 to 20 should be able to protect themselves from rape and assault.

    How does that relate to self-defense?

    A stick of dynamite probably wouldn't have caused as many casualties. A hand-grenade wouldn't have cause as many casualites.

    If you want a cannon, try here. They do beautiful work...

    Holy **** man, what's with China and knife attacks?

    Anyway, hope for a safe recovery for the survivors.

    They shouldn't have those restrictions.
