Yep, 6 people are injured, not dead.  What's your point, subby?

Canada needs to ban high-capacity knives.

You've never seen the aftermath of a knife attack, have you.

There's a reason the "coup de grace" was invented.

Six people - three men and three women - were taken to hospital for treatment. Two have since been released but four people remain in hospital, one in critical condition. A seventh victim and a police officer were treated at the scene. The victims range in age from their 20s to their 60s.

Canadians are pussies...if that happened in America, there'd be way more victims, and they'd all be dead.

Because the 2nd Amendment keeps us safe.

If the people he attacked had been carrying knives themselves, this wouldn't have been a problem.

Four counts of aggravated assault.
Four counts of assault with a weapon.
Three counts of common assault.
One count of assaulting a peace officer.

A real hero would have used their own knife to stop the maniac.

All victims taken to the hospital for socialized medicine. THE HORROR. Or not.

I'm sure those people feel safer knowing that if they carry a gun they'd get a longer sentence than the attacker.

Mean while, in New York

FFS, why did that send before I finished it. *Ahem*

In America, that same guy would probably have injured or killed at least twice that.
 
2013-02-02 05:56:30 AM  
Now if any of those victims had been armed with a gun, the stabber would be dead now. And clearly that would be better. For some reason.

Ok, we're STARTING the thread with someone that missed the point completely....

Subby is a moron. There are plenty of guns in Canada. We just have fewer nutcases who feel it's their God-given right to kill a bunch of people for no apparent reason.
 
2013-02-02 06:10:49 AM  
Oh hey look. Everyone survived someone being a crazy asshole.


If only they all had guns this would have never happened.


And by that I mean several people would certainly be dead.

Preferably the attacker.  If the first victim would have sprayed the walls with the attacker's brains it would have saved a few victims and the cost of a trial.

You can make more guns like that on pimpmygun's website. There's a thread every now and then on 4Chan about the knifiest gun possible.

Old enough to know better: What's the Canadian mental health care system like?


Depends on the province as they are mostly in charge of setting health policy. They use federal money (less every year it seems) but they control thir healthcare. Mental health services are not as widely available as they should be but there are still limited options and you can always pay for your own care if you can afford it. Usually the difference is wait time and less one one one care. Socialized mental health options usually tend more towards group therapy and longer wait times.

Let's be realistic here. If someone runs at me with a knife, I have no problem putting several 165 grain JHP .40 slugs in their chest. I'm pretty sure that the last time that someone did that, I didn't feel bad for cracking them in the face with an oxygen tank.

Not every stabbing is meant to kill the target.  If someone stabs you even once, you're pretty much at their mercy after that, because you're not fighting back very well, and you're not outrunning them.

I actually agree with you on this. If you're not able to drop someone before they get in range of the knife, nothing you do is going to turn out well. You're going to get hurt, badly, even if you walk away from it. Real life is not a Chuck Norris movie, and knife fighting is a dirty, bloody mess of a thing.

In close combat, given a choice between a guy with a pistol, and the guy running at me with a knife, I'd kill the knife guy first.

he had a hammer too... so bang on that for a while

I don't understand the whole gun debate.  Honestly.

If I wanted to kill a lot of people....the most people possible.  I wouldn't use a gun.  I wouldn't use a knife.  I'd use explosives and fire.  And you can't regulate either of those things.  A can of gasoline, some chains, some locks, and you can kill everyone in the room.  The worst school killing in the US didn't involve guns.

Explosives are much harder to track, easier to get and can be set off in a variety of different ways.

Hell, if I were really desperate - I'd use a car.  Get a big pickup truck or something similar and just drive through a crowded pedestrian area.

I don't own a gun, I don't hang out at the gun range....I don't have stock in a gun company.  I don't care about guns.  But if I were insane, if I wanted to kill people, I can't fathom how gun regulation would stop me or any other psychopath who wants to kill people.

You're actually more likely to kill yourself doing that, and gasoline is crappy for creating a bomb - big flash, little spread. If you're using a petrochemical, propane would be the way to go. At minimum, you'd want to use black powder in a closed metallic or plastic container, if not a home-mixed high grade explosive. Locks and chains are an inefficient spread type of projectile. Most handbooks for improvised munitions and anarchist cookbooks recommend either nails or ball bearings (bomb vests that suicide bombers use are loaded with them.)

It's not hard to actually make an ANFO bomb, and you can buy the fertilizer over time - which is what McVeigh did to avoid detection. You can make a blasting cap out of a 12 gauge shotgun shell with very little knowledge.

/wow. Why are there black helicopters outside?
//The skinheads like to use pipebombs, and leave special suprises for cops and emergency responders. Know your enemy, so to speak.

Good point subs.  No gun deaths in that article.
