OK, so we have approximately 12,000 people year dying from guns .. I guess the libs are right. I mean ban the guns and all the children the world over will be safe. In fact getting rid of guns will save so many lives it just makes sense. Ahhhh, as Columbo would say “There’s just one more thing” If the guns are gone then how do you explain this…
China stabbing spree hurts 22 school children.
Knife-wielding man also attacked elderly woman in central Henan province

A knife-wielding man injured 22 children and one adult outside a primary school in central China as students were arriving for classes Friday, police said, the latest in a series of periodic rampage attacks at Chinese schools and kindergartens.
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.
A Guangshan county hospital administrator said the man first attacked an elderly woman, then students, before being subdued by security guards who have been posted across China following a spate of school attacks in recent years. He said there were no deaths among the nine students admitted, although two badly injured children had been transferred to better-equipped hospitals outside the county.
A doctor at Guangshan’s hospital of traditional Chinese medicine said that seven students had been admitted, but that none were seriously injured.
Neither the hospital administrator nor the doctor would give his name.
Children likely between 6-11 years old
It was not clear how old the injured children were, but Chinese primary school pupils are generally 6-11 years old.
A notice posted on the Guangshan county government’s website confirmed the number of injured and said an emergency response team had been set up to investigate the attacks.
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.
Most of the attackers have been mentally disturbed men involved in personal disputes or unable to adjust to the rapid pace of social change in China, underscoring grave weaknesses in the antiquated Chinese medical system’s ability to diagnose and treat psychiatric illness.
In one of the worst incidents, a man described as an unemployed, middle-aged doctor killed eight children with a knife in March 2010 to vent his anger over a thwarted romantic relationship.

———————————————————————————————–OK, so no guns then how do you explain 22 precious children getting stabbed.
Knife crime 2005: 1,920 2006: 1,830 2008: 1,796 Hmm
Just a few more tidbits and suggestions.
Car Crashes Kill 40,000 in U.S. Every Year.. What’s that, 40,000 Why that’s like 3 1/3 times higher then guns.
Well right here and now I demand we sign petions and hug a tree and sing Kumbyeffinya and demand they Ban the Automobile (Start with the Dolt). I mean it sounds safer to hand your six year old a loaded revolver, and he has better odd’s.
Then there is this.
Now this one is kinda shocking.
In Hospital Deaths from Medical Errors at 195,000 per Year USA
Last, but certainly not least is Abortion.
TOTAL ABORTIONS SINCE 1973:
performed annually in the U.S. about
1.2 million a year.
So we have 195,000 medical and 40,000 Automobile and
1.2 Million Abortions a yr. For a grand total of
One Million One Hundred Thirty Five Thousand deaths.
Then we have 12,000 Gun and 2,000 knife for 14,000.
Me thinks the debate is over.
PS. If a guy sits in a bar for 14 hrs, drinks 14 beers, and then drives his car into 20 children and they all die. ( Yea I know pretty long..LOL) Any way was it the car who killed them or the guy. Would you start demanding tighter car control laws.
C’mon people open your effin minds…..for once.
