So you think we can paint the enemy camp as thinking it's okay to cut and stab kids as long as they don't die?
Heh.

Good one.

If you'd like a better statistic, try this one on for size: according to Grant Duwe's research reported in Mass Murder in the United States: a history, the most deadly mass murder attacks throughout the past century did not involve firearms. They involved arson and bombs.

Even if you could eliminate all guns by outlawing them (you can't, but even if you could), the body counts would then go up, not down, as nutcases turned to more dangerous weapons such as matches and fertilizer.
