If the guards and teachers in the school of this had the gun this would have had the ending in mere seconds so the argument of you has invalidity.

I wonder what a comparative study would reveal about the relative fatality rate of a knife-wielding assailant versus a gun-wielding assailant?

Oh, wait, I don't wonder that at all.

A crazed gunman has to stop to reload but that maniac with a knife never runs out of ammo.  Guns, as our nation's founders intended, are inherently safer by far.

And I'll bet that most (if not all) survive.

It's almost as though you have a better chance of surviving if you aren't attacked with something that is designed specifically to kill people.

This is a call to arms,  we must ban these dangerous Assault Knives.  there is no reason to have a knife that can cut people deep enough to kill them.  everyone should be happy and able to manage with a 1 inch blade, and anything longer should only be available only to licensed professionals who need them for their jobs, people like chefs.who are trained to properly use knives.  Look at the statistics, 90% of people will cut themselves with their own knives by accident, that number jumps to 150% of people if you count children who get their hands on their irresponsible parents knife blocks that aren't locked up with safety devices..

Story about how I grew up in a rural community and everyone brought machetes to school and it was never a big deal.

Now they're saying 7 victims sent to hospitals and the suspect in custody is a male student.

The answer is to release wild boars into the local ecosystem so that residents are incentivized to carry firearms.

Think about how long it would take me to reload a tank, and I'd probably need help with operating it. That's even safer. I want a government issued tank.

They should have had a zero tolerance for knives in the school... that should have kept it from happening.

I'm pretty sure it's the other way around.

Knife stab wounds tend to be lethal while shootings are survivable depending on the ammo, shot placement.

No, a high-capacity knife would have jammed causing far fewer casualties, he was using the approved limited-capacity knife.

Fark that, I saw we need silo-based ICBMs.  Think about how long it takes to build those things, and how difficult they are to maintain properly!  Sure, you could use one, but it'd take you so long to reload that bystanders would definitely jump you before you detonated the second nuclear weapon.

So a thread on Fark that devolves into a gun debate drives you to drink? Do you live in Nerfworld?

No but bulletts tend to punch nice sized holes in people that if they don't die from the hit, bleeding out is a very real happening, or they get hit in very important organs.

Knive wounds can be severe depending on the location but the thing a knife wound has going for it is that it's usually a clean slice that can be sewed/glued shut.
 
2014-04-09 09:53:57 AM  
Before we get all crazy, we need to figure out what kind of knife it was. Butter? Ginsu? Maybe one of those scary looking ones with built-in brass knuckles?

You'd be surprised what a weapon designed to maximize lethality does.  Anywhere in the center of mass is "you're almost certain to die if you're not in a hospital in 5 minutes" territory.

Lung filled with blood?  Goodbye.
Nick the heart?  Basically no one has survived this.
Liver?  High risk, toxic internal hemorrhaging.
Any major artery?  You're going to bleed out.

And only the last of those is a high likliehood of happening with a knife.  You have to know that guns are better oriented for killing, so why do you pretend?

Right, that's why people shot by cops, who are supposedly professionals and thus trained and proficient in firearms manipulation and shot placement, never, EVER survive.

Guns = killmachines.  No wounding shots, ever.  Especially when used by wigged out, untrained, pre-pubescents who's only exposure to pulling the trigger involved clicking a mouse while badmouthing others on the internet.

Early reports are that a person ran through the school slashing or puncturing students with a knife or other sharp object.

Running in the halls? That is at least two day's detention right there.
