    As has been frequently pointed out, it’s 19 ‘injured’ with the attacker subdued as opposed to 26 dead and the shooter killing themselves.

    Neither is good, but you can run away or with a little help defend yourself from a knife, but neither for a gun.

    There is good research that shows the lengthy and detailed media coverage of these kinds of incidents spawn copycat incidents. The more you publicize the gory details the more incidents happen. These mentally disturbed kids fantasize about the recognition they will have. When they spend much of their childhood playing gory video games and watching all the blood and gore that has become popular in prime time, it is not very surprising they accept it as desirable behavior.

    So if everybody in school had been packing heat (including the knife nut), what would have happened?

    Man is an imperfect creature. He WILL kill his brother. Count on it. It is our nature. A free society must account for it by giving its citizens the right to self defense.

    Ted, I was hoping somebody would come up with the NKA and its associated philosophy (satirically of course). Thanks.

    I agree with you. The issue with guns is how easy they make it for someone to end a life. The knife attack was horrific, but at least it looks like all of the victims will survive.

    “spawn copycat incidents”

    This happened immediately after the two high profile knife attacks in China.

    What to do? Censorship?

    Stipple – Good idea.
    If you never report bad things, then bad things never happen.

    RE:“Sadly, most are liberals. Just check the stats”.


    BTW, ever hear of the “skin heads”?
    They are far from liberal and very full of rage.
    However, psychosis is generally non-partisan, because they can’t understand the concept.
