    Sword Attack at School in Sweden

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34602621

    Huh. A mass casualty attack in a European school with a non firearm weapon.


    Dear Anti's,

    ALL of your arguments are now null and void, even if you don't believe them to be.

    Regards,

    Law Abiding Citizens
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    Actually the anti's point is made. No gun, no large number of deaths.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    The point that I would make is; Bad guys will abuse whatever tool is at hand to achieve their nefarious ends.

    (nefarious: Sinful, villainous, criminal, or wicked, especially when noteworthy or notorious for such characteristics)
    Of course it is. The point that must be made is that government must not be used to punish law abiding citizens engaging in peaceful behaviors...OCing. But, government is in the business of abusing citizens of their rights...a stream of revenue.

    They just need more anti-gun laws to fix their violence problem. /sarcasm

    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    If the story made it into the mainstream media, this would probably be the liberal response... They like pointing out that guns were made for killing so they are inherently violent tools. But somehow that doesn't apply to swords, knives, or bows.

    Some kind of sword control laws would certainly cut down on all the drive-by swordings happening these days. Or the toddlers finding their parents swords and killing themselves or others.

    Did someone forget to include swords on the sign?

    Anti's point is that a few deaths are acceptable, as long as they are not from a firearm. The fact that a firearm is an efficient stopper of any crime, keeping casualties low goes against their grain.
