    Crazy world we live in. I wonder why he didn't use a gun. Maybe they had "gun free zone" sign up at the school.

    Wow.
    Careful the blood isn't dry yet. People are still in critical condition.

    However please don't let me stand in the way of promoting your agenda.

    Is that a joke? Do you honestly think a silly sign would stop someone with the firm intention of hurting others? Besides, not that I know too much about schools nowadays, but isn't there a sign that says something like "no weapons allowed?" Well if there is, this kid completely ignored that one.

    Why wow?

    Fine, maybe one person will die (although the article says everyone is expected to live). Does that hurt my argument that there would be waaay more death and damage, had it been a gun instead of a knife?

    What agenda? Violence with a gun is faster and waaaay more deadly than with almost any other tool you can own. It's just a fact.

    ----------

    If you have the intent to go hurt people, you're going to hurt people, sign or no sign.

    "No gun" zones are intended to make situations where no one had the original INTENT to hurt people less deadly. When you suddenly find yourself in a fight, things will escalate a lot less quickly if no one has a gun.

    Really? From someone who starts threads titled:

    All of these, started by you; and these aren't even the ones that are marginally pushing your agenda.

    To be honest, you really do not have any room to talk about pushing agendas.

    I have the taste NOT to do this while they are still moping the blood off the floor and people are still in critical condition.

    However on the other-side they sit and wait for an event to try and use emotion and FUD to push theirs.

    Ah, yet again the gun guys push the "now is not the time" mantra.

    When exactly is the time?

    http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/mon-july-23-2012/aurora---gun-control

    Moneyshot at the end:

    The Aurora shootings occurred on July 20th, for weeks afterwards Fox News kept repeating it was "too soon to talk about guns", BUT on JULY 22nd they start off a story with "Is it time to ban COSTUMES at movie theaters?.

    I'm done with this BS, regardless of whether the poster intentionally meant to deflect the issue, THERE IS NO BETTER TIME TO DISCUSS A TOPIC THEN WHEN IT IS IN THE ****ING HEADLINES, to wait only makes sure that the public at large ignores or becomes completely apathetic. Now, I wonder what industry would benefit from such a thing? /rant

    Really?

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1665310

    You went straight for "gun free zone" at LAX, when they were still mopping the blood off the floor.

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1606634

    You basically went straight to banning guns (doing your opponent's work for them) while complaining about the hoops you have to go through, while they were still cleaning up this incident.

    Again, You have no room to talk.

    Note: These were ones I just found in a pinch; I haven't even done a full search yet.

    *Awaits the tired rebuttal tactic of "dude what are you stalking me?" or "what is your obsession with my posts" that we've seen far too many times in these forums when a posters clear hypocritical postings are revealed*

    At the end of the day physics doesn't lie. While you can be killed by a knife, it is NOWHERE near the lethal capability of simply pointing and pulling a trigger in someone's direction.

    There are new reports of violence (usually gun violence) almost every week in this country, when exactly is the right time? By your logic, never...

    Taste shmaste.

    Do you apply this to the OP as well?

    Or is that different, because you agree with the agenda he's promoting?

    Given what Bradl posted, I think you know the answer.

    This clearly shows its time we ban kitchen knifes.

    This. Or white guys in general, since they are the vast majority of mass killers/assaulters.

    If kitchen knives were useless for any activity other than stabbing people/animals/paper targets, I'd agree with you.

    Why not get rid of everyone that owns a gun before they start killing???

    Pretty much similar qualifiers. The majority of gun owners are White Men, with little to no post-HS education, in the south and of a conservative politics.

    Seen stabbings plenty of times in Brooklyn when I was a kid. Not to be underestimated. A knife can jack you up pretty good even if you don't die.

    Hopefully the kids have access to a shrink and good plastic surgeon.
