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

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.

Canada should ban the French.

Seriously, it seems like that would solve a lot of your nation's problems.

Frankly, stabbing all those people sounds exhausting and time consuming. If only there was a way to injure them in a semi-automatic fashion...

/If I got stabbed by the douche in that photo, I think I'd be too embarrassed to tell anyone. Did somebody deny him bottle service at the Ultra Lounge?

BronyMedic: omeganuepsilon: This.

Also, any limitation or regulation on firearms only serve to hamper/harass/limit law abiding citizens(aside from possible safety regulations, so they don't blow up in your face and such).  The lawless and crazy don't give 2 farks, apparently, about law and order. If they're bent on killing people, they WILL get it done.

So any limitations on the ability for the mentally ill to obtain legal firearms, which in many states can be done in a matter of five minutes, are useless because they'll buy them off the street? Laws are useless because people will break them anyway, that's your argument here?

And don't give me the crap about "they're prohibited from it". They're only prohibited if they've had a court-ordered involuntary commitment. Even if they checked themselves in for treatment of their Paranoid Schizophrenia where they think Obama is lurking in their bushes and sleep with a gun at night because of it, their only barrier to purchase is a single question on the NCIC Form.

While Lawful gun owners are not the problem, mentally ill people legally obtaining firearms IS a problem. I'm pretty OK with a restriction on that which doesn't depend on individual honesty.

Where did I say we couldn't regulate mentally ill people?
I like how you fabricate the argument that you WANT to argue against, instead of reading and comprehending a post, and then replying in kind.

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.

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.

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.
