Not the same fucking thing

16 Dec

A man with two guns starts shooting children at an elementary school in the US–at least 20 of those children and seven adults end up dead, who knows how many more are injured, and countless are traumatized.

A man  with two guns starts shooting college students at his university in the US–a total of 32 of them die and 17 more are wounded.

A man with a knife starts stabbing children at an elementary school in China–a number of children are injured and traumatized, how many are dead? I am going to hazard a guess and say that many fewer than in the two other cases.

So while I agree with the “expert” who mentioned that unspeakable violence towards the most helpless among us is not exclusive to the US, I will say that where there are fewer guns around, there are fewer casualties of that violence. A person can’t reach across a fucking movie theater, mall, classroom, whatever, with a knife.

A gunman only has to twitch his fucking finger to injure dozens of innocents–anyfuckingwhere.
