I agree with u9. Axe is a tool, it was invented that man can knock down a tree and build a house of it or get warm by fire. Man used spear and bow for hunting at era when we did not even had language to speak. They were invented to survive, not to kill other man.
Gun(s) was invented only because man needed easier, faster and frightening (in eyes of "enemy") way to kill another man. Not because of hunting, not to survive mankind, just for pure killing of another man.
As told above, only purpose of gun is to kill a another man or scare him with possibility to get killed. You cant use gun actually for anything else.
Man is the one who pulls the trigger so why man has such a thing as gun? Because man enjoys the feeling of gun and what it gives. So guns are decease which makes sick man cabable to create hes sick thoughts. Or actually it gives a soil for seeds of madness.
And if someone knifed anyone who was not white and protestant
True, but still "power" between a handgun and knife is totally different thing. Knife was not also originally invented to kill another man, it was a tool. A real tool what gun has not never been.
Anyway, the reason this keeps happening again and again is because the people who bring guns to schools do not have enough support to get enough people together to break the arms of those who need their arms broken.
This has nothing to do with this case, and who can judge who's arms should be broken? You? Me?
Anyway, 8 deads. One was 25 years old single mother of 3 and 5 years old kids and actions of schoolmistress propably saved tens of young lifes but cost her own life. Also 6 young students were killed. I dont see point to argue anymore. No one comes back life from that school anymore.
