I saw this headline earlier and couldn’t help but comment about it; Student charged in stabbings on TX campus, 14 injured.
I doubt you will hear much about this in the media because the accused wasn’t carrying a gun. Think about that sentence for a minute. There’s no denying the truth. The gun control debates makes sensational news, news that will go on for some time. Why? Guns are good business for politics. It polarizes citizens on one side or the other and makes good news. It incites fear, but a knife attack actually has the opposite effect. If reported in the news like guns, then gun control advocates would have to insist on a knife ban, or controls on “tactical” knifes. (yes there are such things know as tactical knives) Guess how far a knife ban will get.
This entire gun control matter is really a waste of talk, news print, and broadcast time. Criminals couldn’t care less what is said, or what laws are passed. There are approximate 3o0 million guns in the United States right now and all of this talk is increasing sales every day. The attempt to ban or tax ammo out of existence won’t work either. People who have guns have already bought significant amounts of ammo for their guns, and a black market for ammo will emerge bringing imported ammo from other countries.
Gun control advocate’s or other extremists with a cause about firearms, get over it and find another cause. This battle is lost, those who want guns will have guns.
