  •  I do think, though, that 26 dead is considerably (6+ / 0-)

    more horrifying than 22 injured. (Not meaning to be abrasive, merely disagreeing)

    •  I wonder... I mean being attacked by a knife is (0+ / 0-)

      terrifying. Those kids have to live with that horror (of the attack) for the rest of their lives.

      But I do appreciate your disagreement in a civil manner.

      I mean, yes there is no argument from me that Guns make it easier to kill people than other kinds of more direct weapons (Knives and the like). That said, I am not in favor of unfettered carry laws or conceal / carry permits or anything like that. I am in no ways a fan of the NRA. What I am in favor of is a combination of tight Gun Control and enhanced education PLUS resourcing to help those with Mental Illness that commit these crimes.

      I was in the ER with my mom when two guys who had gotten into a knife fight were brought in. I saw one as they wheeled him by and omg! it was awful. No one should face either, IMO.
