    Crazy people don't need guns to acheive thier goal.....

    This tells me that it isnít really a problem with guns. Itís a problem with people.
    Instead of school shootings, they have school knifings.

    While in the United States, school shootings have become shockingly commonplace, what many donít know is that in China, where gun control is strict, school knife attacks are a frequent threat. On the very same day as the Sandy Hook shooting in the United States, a man with a knife injured 22 children and one adult at a school in Chenpeng village in the southern province of Guangxi.
    Knife attacks at schools in China are common. Last year, a man climbed over the wall of a kindergarten and attacked 11 students. None suffered life-threatening injuries.
    In 2016, a man in the southern province of Hainan stabbed 10 children before killing himself, authorities said. And another man killed three students at a school in 2014 before jumping off a building.
    Perhaps the worst spate of stabbings occurred in 2010 when attackers targeted schools on three consecutive days. (source)
    Just last month, a man wielding a knife killed 9 children and injured 10 others outside a middle school where he says he was bullied.
    This isnít just a problem in China

    There have been mass knife attacks all over the world.
    In the UK, there has been a deadly knife attack every third day of 2018. In 2017, Met Police recorded 37,443 recorded knife offenses and 6,694 gun offenses. The problem is so bad that a judge has suggested banning the sale of large kitchen knives and that those who already have kitchen knives should file them down to avoid stabbings.
    In 2016, two soldiers were attacked by a man with a knife in Belgium, and a few days ago, a prison inmate on day leave stabbed two police officers then took their guns and shot them.
    Four people were injured and one was killed when a knife-wielding assailant attacked them in Paris last week.
    These are just a few examples and I havenít dug any further than the first page of Google. I could go on and on, but I think you get the point.
    What happens if you take away guns

    In each of these cases, something different was blamed.
    • Some of the attackers were shouting ďAllahu AkbarĒ as they stabbed their victims.
    • Some of the attackers cited crippling stress.
    • Some of the attackers said they were bullied or mistreated.
    • Some of the attackers were mentally ill and had a history of psychological problems.
    • Some of the attackers had religious and ethnic differences from their victims.
    • One attacker just didnít like disabled people.
    You canít fix people who want to harm others for their various reasons by taking away guns. You can only make it harder for the rest of us to defend ourselves against them.
    Take away guns, and you get knives. Take away knives and you get improvised explosives. There is no way to take away the yen that some people have to kill others.
    And if I am involved in a knife-fight, well, personally, Iíd rather take a gun.

    by the time the "safety and security before personal freedoms" types get finished, EVERYTHING will be banned... guns, knives, cars, bricks, bats, you name it, there is almost not one object made by the hand of man that could not be used to kill in one manner or another... of course, the "elites" will still have all of those "banned" items and their "personal body guards" behind the walls of their "gated" enclaves....
