why would they need an extended magazine if they only needed to shoot one person

I`m not thinking the teachers will be able to shoot any better than the police, they need extended magazines...

when people make arguments like this, it just goes to show how deep the effects of biases go in shaping your worldview. It prevents you from seeing simple things- such as, as pointed above, that had the person had a gun they would have killed more people.

So if a deranged lunatic armed with a knife goes on a rampage and some innocent people are maimed, mutilated and killed- your reaction is-- these things happen, at least he didn't use a gun?

And you're accusing other people of having a biased world view?  Roll Eyes

Guns do not kill people. People kill people. Same thing with Knives, baseball bats and razor blades.  Mental illness and poor parenting need to be addressed in this country. Guns and sharp objects should remain as they are.

Hope this helps

Perhaps because of increasing difficulties in getting a gun, the kid had to conform with a knife.
No doubt if he had a gun, it would have been another massacre.

Maybe we need to address mental health and parenting in this country instead of banning every tool that can be used to hurt someone?


Huh


And then you would complain about government spending, right?

If it saves just one child, it would be worth it...

It isn't my reaction at all to say 'at least he didn't use a gun'. My response was to the 'ban knives' reaction as if there is an equivalent argument present.

Knives are not as dangerous as guns, period. It seems sensible to put greater emphasis on gun control than knives because of that. Ofcourse that is not the only solution to the epidemic of mass violence episodes.

I'm not clear on what's wrong with looking on the bright side by saying, "Thank god he didn't have a gun"?

Why not restrict access to deadly objects AND "address" mental illness and poor parenting?  Wouldn't that be the most effective?

(Before ya start ranting, let me point out that I'm pretty sure that both guns and knives WERE banned on that high school campus at the time of the knife-attack.)

A day after a man with a record crashes automobile into a daycare killing a child, we awake to news of yet another terrible automobile tragedy...this time someone slammed into a bus, killing 10 people and hurting many more. How many deaths are enough?? How many of americas youth need to die before we 'do something'??

 Automobiles cause the deaths of tens of thousands of americans every year. Stand up and demand change. End the madness now!!!!!!!!!!

And don't forget martial artists.  I call for amputation of all the limbs of anyone with expertise in a martial art.  They are dangerous right wing lunatics and after all we are here to protect the children.   Grin

Access to rope should be restricted, too  -- We don't want any hangin's.

LOL at all the stupid dick heads in this thread who aren't willing to give up their knifes to save the children.

You can buy everything pre cut at the store, knifes belong in the hands of professionals.

True. Studies show that those who have knives in their home are more likely to be injured by their own knives than to ever need them for a serious purpose.
