Please read below, This is a call to ban all knifes in america. Even though this happened in China, we all know it’s only a matter of time before there is a mass murdering of innocent people via knife attack here in America.

The price of liberty comes with many costs. Guns are't in the constitution for self defense against merely the average criminal. Guns are legal so that we can use them in the event (god forbid) that we have to rebel against out government. If we are disarmed we have no fighting chance against a fascist regime. The innocent deaths from guns are horrible but a government that usurps the rights of it's citizens systematically is even worse and well worth the risk.

We should also ban Cars as well, More americans die in cars each year then any other incidents!!!!
Yes but you have to pass a government test to drive a car, and allow the government to know the intimate details of your vehicle registration to be legally allowed to drive it.
If the same was true for gun ownership a lot of accidental deaths wouldn't have happened. Mandatory training is a good idea in my opinion, maybe even a license to prove that you took a course and at least looked like you were paying attention.
BEyond that, if you run over someone in your car, the government could potentially track that down as you are registered to own it.
