Man stabs 22 children in China

BEIJING (AP) — A man wielding a knife wounded 22 children and one adult outside a primary school in central China as students were arriving for classes on Friday, the police said.

 

The attack, in the village of Chengping in Henan Province, happened shortly before 8 a.m., said a police officer from Guangshan County, where the village is located.

 

The attacker, Min Yingjun, 36, was subdued by security guards and taken into custody by the police, said the officer, who declined to give her name, which is customary among Chinese civil servants. Guards have been posted at schools across China after a spate of attacks in recent years.

 

A Guangshan County hospital administrator said there were no deaths among the nine students admitted to the hospital, although two badly wounded children were transferred to better-equipped hospitals outside the county.

 

A doctor at Guangshan’s hospital of traditional Chinese medicine said that seven students had been admitted there, but that none were seriously injured.

 

It was not clear how old the wounded children were, but Chinese primary school students are generally 6 to 11.

Well there you go, Morgan Freeman was right.

 

 

Knife control laws, anyone?

If other people in that school were allowed to carry concealed knives, this tragedy wouldn't have escalated like it did! You have nothing to blame but the strict anti-bladed weapons rule they impose on school zones. Disgusting. People are dying because of it!

Not an argument for firearm-carrying school guards by the way, tasers would have taken him down just as well.

We need to restrict access to bladed weapons. Statistical evidence shows that homicide rates were much lower prior to the Bronze age.

And they gun control is bad because people will just use knives. Let's see, 27+ dead vs 9 critically wounded.

And in the Aurora shootings only 12 people died and 58 were injured.

 

Maybe James Holmes was using marshmallow bullets or something.

That's a really bad comparison, you're acting as if the people injured rather than killed, don't matter.

It's far less of a 'deal' to be injured non-permanently. If I had to choose between my kid sending a night in hospital, or hell even months in hospital, I'd take that over them being killed a million times over.

When you shoot children they tend to die. ._.

his gun jammed, that is why. Think about what 65ish more rounds would have done, especially since he gave himself up to the police outside.

 

If this is supposed to be some kind of pro gun thing

 

"no deaths"

 

"26 teachers and schoolchildren who were killed"; "The gunman in the Connecticut shooting rampage was carrying an arsenal of hundreds of rounds of especially deadly ammunition — enough to kill just about every student in the school if given enough time, authorities said Sunday, raising the chilling possibility that the bloodbath could have been far worse."

A well-aimed kick or punch probably would have done the trick for crying out loud.
