This happened 16 months ago, and made all of the national news outlets.

I agree, we cant fix the real problem by going after tge symptoms.

There is a serious problem in the America.

My thoughts exactly, and I am not remotely on the gun control crusade. Things like this actually make me think. 22 injured instead of 22 killed. Please properly interpret my screen name before anyone goes on a "you gun grabbing hippy" rant.

granted it does appear the incident happened 6 months go and perhaps the date format confused the OP..

But 0 people ended up dying.

How many people would have died if he had a gun I wonder?

A little common sense could solve a lot of America's problems.. but that there's the problem for America isn't it.

GO GUNS WOOHOO!

Well they don't try and ban guns so why would they ban knives?

People toss the ban word around so much.

Saying we should have more background checks is not banning it.

I know it is a strange concept.

Doesn't really change anything.

Once the guns are gone the knives remain.

And pubic schools are messed up.

Which is why universal health care would be great.

If we are going to say the countries that don't have the same issues isn't because of their steps on guns then the other correlation would be access to health care.

Forget our problems. Who cares? We need to fix OTHER countries and send them financial aid so they can be like us! Big and strong and number one!

Have you ever experienced mental healthcare?

It's worse than trying to find a decent doctor.

No seriously our mental healthcare is a joke a 2 year old could do better. Especially with all the government and Insirance red tape dictating to doctors how to do their jobs.

But the stabbing just like the shootings are a problem.

Stabbings and shootings are symptoms.

We need to fix the problem, not limit everyones freedoms to try to reat the illness.

Or that guy could have been stabbed first and his gun taken. Since we are making stuff up.


Or woman of course


I think it's fair to say that no example could ever change your attitude toward self defense.

I'm not being intentionally provocative, just pointing out that fact.

completely agree.. and that's the best response someone has said so far on this site because you didn't go rabbies like about your 2nd amendment and guns! bravo!

they are both problems in their own rights..

the big issue here, is that

1. companies make money off selling meds to people
2. companies make money off selling guns to people

until your country embraces the idea of progression through innovation and working together to improve things your going to be screwed.

cash is the ruler of your society - thus guns and meds will never go away

But who pays for it?

You are right it sounds good, but it isnt doable.

It always ends in rationing, where " important" people get front of line service always, and us regular types get 6 month waits to see our doctor for the chest pains we have been having.

the choice of weapons doesnt bother me half as much as whats going on in peoples heads.
what is making people want to do these things? people are snapping left and right.

That statement is a two way street, and it is not fact.

I think we both have some middle ground.

What ifs isn't that ground though.
If you want to say a gun would have stopped this there is the exact same chance a gun would have made it worse.

I don't mind you owning a gun, far from it. I am just tired of reading about how these people with guns that they got from people that were negligent or able to slip through the cracks and kill innocent people.
Nothing in the second about that.

So, if someone was armed, perhaps even a student, this would have been ended before he was able to stab so many.

Am I missing something?


I think your absolutely right. And because of that I think onequestion is right. We have a cultural problem.



I should state, so as not to be misunderstood, that I disapprove of crazy idiots stabbing people if that wasn't clear.

By framing this and other incidents of violence as a cultural problem suggests that our culture is responsible. This is not true, the assailant is responsible, not society.

Our taxes duh.

If we want to keep harping about mental health and how that is the problem then we better be willing to back that talk up.
Or else it is just useless drivel from people that really don't care to stop this senseless killing IMHO.
