A good example is the frightending incident that happened in the prairies a few years ago (yes, in Canada. Get over it
) Some looney tune in a bus decapitated a guy with a kitchen knife. The rest of the passengers bolted. If the fruit loop had had a gun, things would have been very different.
Who's limiting these psycho's to just using knives? You do realize without guns the next step up is homemade bombs right? Do you really think that's a better alternative?
You really think they are going to just put all of their evil plans on hold? Apparently you didn't hear about the situation in China yesterday where a man stabbed 22 children and an elderly lady at a school?
You people don't realize that people are going to just find a different tool to carry out their plans.
Wouldn't the better solution be to find out what's causing these people to do these things and try to stop the source of the madness?
