A fatal stabbing in Australia?

Is this the thread where all the guns rights people come in to point out that it is still possible to be murdered in Australia despite their gun ban, and that this is totes equivalent to the mass casualty events that happen in the US every month?

1 dead person in Australia is demographically equivalent to 13 in the US.

Yeah, I can't wait for them to get here.  Then we'll really give it to them.  Right guys?  We are going to let them have it and have at them.  This is going to make us look smart this time.

It's clip, not mag liberal and knives don't use either. How can we have any rational gun discussion if stupid libs don't understand all aspects of every single gun?

Pretty disgusting celebrating some "meme hero" while a person has died and another one is seriously injured because you failed to prevent these animals from entering your country.

Very pathetic as well.

1 dead person in Australia is demographically equivalent to 13 in the US.


...yeahhhhhh, but this doesn't escalate linearly. Using the same logic, 1 Australian Prime Minister is demographically equivalent to 13 PMs in the US.

I guess trolley has a different meaning down under than it does north of the equator.

Because this is in Austrailia, not the USA where the cops are not a militarized force of blood-thirsty thugs.

If this were in the US, the attacker would have had a gun, and Trolley Man would be dead.

Naw.  This is the thread where we remind them that in spite of all that rampaging, car fires and stabbings the guy only managed 1 kill where as if he had a gun he would have a solid 6 in the bag with 4 more in critical condition.

Never bring a knife to a trolley fight.
