Seems like a big knife point spread in a place you're only supposed to cut cards

I was assured that the Las Vegas maniac from 2017 would have just as easily stabbed 400 people and killed 60 of them if he didn't have access to guns.

Maybe I'm just getting too cynical in my old age, but I'm a little skeptical anyone actually said that.

Actually, during that debate someone brought up a coordinated knife attack on a train.

I'm lazy. Link me to one where someone said that and you can count me a believer.

If we had better laws on who was allowed to buy knives, then this would not happen.

It would have taken him a week, but yeah, that's technically true.

The really amazing part of that is he shot up a country music festival and no one returned fire.

Outside of tourist areas, Las Vegas is a dump.

Ever worked in a retail or industrial kitchen? 

The ones with the sharpest knives are some of the craziest in the back of the house, and they're they best cooks. 

Worked back of house when someone triggered the silent alarm accidentally/unknowingly.  Cops came pouring into the kitchen, four of our six cooks dropped their knives and assumed the position because they were on parole. I tossed my weed under the salad station. Interesting conversations were had after the cops left.

This is why only chefs in restaurants should be allowed to have knives. Want to cook at home? Not unless you take your items to a Cutting Center to have them sliced up for you. Anyway, I just gave-away my neat idea that was guaranteed to allow me an early retirement. You're welcome.

Anything that happens is a pro-gun argument it seems.

Ugh.  This crap is just too sad.  And I'm feeling less and less safe as the days go by.  Not that I ever felt totally safe, but hot damn.  This sh*t is b a n a n a s.

We need to make sure Carl in accounting can't buy a knife.  It's the only way to stop this.

I was reading about a targeted assassination of a mayor down in Mexico (along with 18 other people attending that city hall meeting), and I was thinking "damn that's a lot of violence".  But up here in the USA, there is a shiat-ton of random violence like mass shootings and mass stabbings and people driving into crowds.  It is far more focused in other countries, here it is completely random.  And that makes other countries look a lot safer, regardless of crime stats.  If I go overseas, it seems quite unlikely that I could be killed just walking down the street.  Here, not so much.

What are the odds the story will be mental health issue if Non-white and White supremacy if he is white perpetrator.

Sounds like someone took Poker a little too literal.

Where is the good guy with a gun?
I thought all crime was instantly stopped by heavily armed meal team six members.

That depends.  Was it someone attacking people randomly or was it a white person targeting specific minorities?

Saying that there needs to be gun control because mass killings don't happen with knives, wasn't supposed to be a challenge.

Indeed. The odds here would be 6-to-2 (and anyone saying that would still be mocked for not reducing it to 3-to-1).

/am I grouching as a math guy
//or a gambler
///the correct answer is of course yes

I think we aren't seeing all the reports of mass stabbings. It happened in Manitoba, then in St. Catharines, Ontario. It is obviously coordinated online, and probably, like the Prais van attacks that spread to the USA and Canada, the coordination is international. We need CSIS and CSEC to earn their taxpayer money (that multibillion dollar 5 Eyes cyber surveillance HQ Stephen Harper built is literally for this exact thing).

So do guns, interestingly enough.
