Question A sad failure of Chinese "gun control"

Man fatally stabs 8 schoolchildren in China -

Man fatally stabs 8 schoolchildren in ChinaMarch 23, 2010 11:25 a.m. EDT

Beijing, China (CNN) -- A man stabbed eight children to death and wounded five others at an elementary school in eastern China on Tuesday, local media said.

The attack took place shortly after 7 a.m. at the Experimental School in Nanping City, the state-run Xinhua news agency said.

The city, in Fujian province, is 1,486 kilometers (923 miles) from the nation's capital, Beijing.

The school, with more than 2,000 students, is considered one of the best in the city of 3 million people.

The suspect in the attack is a 41-year-old man who once worked as a doctor at a community clinic. Some news reports said he recently resigned from the position; other said he had been fired.

Guns or no guns, some people will flip out & make very bad decisions. I have to think that a number of the onlooking kids will be scarred by this.

Dead Bears, the only good kind.

I would be interested to see what caused him to stop the attack. Gang rush? Cop? Martial Artist?

There was a similiar story out of Japan, I believe, like 3 years ago. Guy rented a truck and ran it into a crowd of people. Got out and started stabbing people with a kitchen knife. Killed a dozen or so and wounded another half dozen.

First cop on the scene draws his weapon and the guy gets right down on his stomach and is taken into custody.

More Guns = Less Crime

This bears repeating....
