So far the most deadliest involved a bomb that killed 44 students and teachers.


What about Vegas? That was over 50.

lol I hear you.

But no... The comparison isn't the point of the OP at all. My only point in all of it was, it can happen anywhere with any weapon. The US isn't the source of all killings. That's all.


So you are on the rational inevitable wagon with me.

Perhaps if they made silencers mandatory then peeps would not be bothered as much?

It's all about, dare I say, having the right tools for the job. It depends where you are, what you're using etc. One item isn't going to be good in every situation. That weapon isn't going to work in all situations.

Let's use a dance club for instance. Most people are going to run from the center of that action but you may have one brave soul that will tackle that person even at the cost of their own life. Just depends on the situation. A knife in the same scenario will be so much harder to stop since it's close quarters and by the time someone figures out what's going on, if you're good with your chosen item, you would already have ducked away to somewhere else in the crowd continuing on your assault.

With an Auto or Simi Auto, you're pretty much spraying and praying unless you're in an optimal position like in Vegas. That's not very common. People who kill others for the hell of it aren't right in the head and most likely not very intelligent.

A highly sharpened plastering trowel is a formidable cutting tool and defensive protecting the hand from any incoming blades or whatever. add a small wrecking bar to the other hand, job sorted, and just incidental tools laying around your home.
Give me an SA80 as a private citizen over that improvisation any day though.

Heck If it is easier to kill with a knife imagine how easy it will be with this new baby.
BTW I'm talking about the Aliens who are coming to visit on my birthday not humans I couldn't chop a human up.

If wanted to kill lots of people would you pick a gun or knife?.


As a main weapon, neither. As secondary, depends on if it's close quarters or not so I would say equally both. Though a knife is more effective. It's quiet. It doesn't need ammo. It's more effective still if someone is trying to stop you by physical force.


AugustusMasonicus



Of course a gun is more effect, no question about it. Ok, why has it been mostly guns in America? And why have we not had a random nutter in the UK go into a school and start stabbing people?

Off course it is because if the guns!
