    year in the U.S.) crazy person attacking groups of people, the craziest or worst of whom attack groups of children, then I'd far prefer that guns not be weapons they can access.
    And that doesn't goes for all the murder/suicides in domestic situations or stalker boyfriends, etc.
    Sure, some of these violent attackers would succeed in killing or seriously harming the victim even without a gun, but there's at least a chance of escaping with your life if the person attacking you has to get close enough to stab you. If they have a semi-automatic with an extended clip, you're pretty much shit out of luck.
