    From Omnibus Dubitandum at the Understanding Each Other blog comes this link to a comparison:

    China: Man with knife slashes 22 school children - World - IBNLive and it happened before in 2010 Officials: In China, man stabs, kills 8 children - USATODAY.com So should we ban knives and how many die from misuse of vehicles - lets limit them to bus & taxi drivers!

    Why is it not a surprise that so many Lefties are doing everything they can to politicize this horrible tragedy.

    And Thomas Jefferson gives us this advice: "Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have ... The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decrease

    An Omion News Report for Lefties


    Sorry, but I won't even post an excerpt as this is too profane. But, it is a perfect example of left-wing journalism about the horrid slauhgter yesterday.. At Fuck Everything, Nation Reports | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

    And one of the nicest graphics I've seen:

    Israel has a solution to this problem:

    And this thread, plus many more like it, aren't examples of the right politicizing the tragedy?

    POsting lists of other mass killings is supposed to put this in "perspective"?

    That's sick and what's even more sick is making this about a political agenda.

    Please stop.

    There's plenty of time for the Obama hating and gun loving. Can't you just, for a little while, let this be about protecting our children and mourning all the people who were killed?

    How about we do this?

    If China has a problem with knives, they should ban knives
    If we have a problem with guns, we should ban guns

    You attack the problem at it's core
