How many kids were killed by banned guns in Chicago.  Bans help criminals.  

Quoting PamR:



Quoting 143myboys9496:

 True they're as easily deadly as guns..

If this were the US....people would be demanding food be sold in bite sized pieces so we could outlaw knives. (**sarcasm alert**)


How many 6 year olds has a knife killed in 30 seconds?

Knives can be deadly.  But they can't do the kind of damage a gun can.

And I still would love to see where anyone is attempting to ban all guns.

Chicago does indeed have a serious problem with gun crime now.  No one is asking for all guns to be banned. 

And the 9/11 hijackers did use box cutters.  Which is why you can't board a plane with box cutters or knives, etc. anymore.

This happened on the same day as newtown. 

But yes I agree that knives can be as deadly as guns.

Really? Is that why 20 kids are dead at Newtown but none died in China?

Interesting.

The man in china ( oh yeah if you don't know the knifer was 36 years old) was moving so fast to get the 22 kids in a couple minutes the killed himself with the knife!!!! 

Newtown was on the same day. 20 children and 6 adults or have you forgot about the 6 adults? Two differant weapons two killers two differant countries.

China: total gun ban, knives allowed, one child law.

USA: gun loving, knives allowed, no child laws.

 So if those children died in china how many families would that really hurt? they can have more after a death. but There are loopholes and it is up to the government.....

Well it was food for thought and produced some really interesting posts. Crazy world we live in these days but all in all most of the time it's a fairly safe place to be....just every once in a while someone goes off the deep end and it's all we hear about for a week or two...then we move on with our lives until the next  horrible occurance happens....sad in so many ways...
