    everyone would ride.

    Columbine was an apt demonstration that a gun free zone plus slow response from officers more concerned for their own safety than the safety of people under attack. Remember, they are not obligated to protect your life or the life of your little ones.

    Dozens of school knife sprees across China have resulted in many dead. The children in the last knife attack incident were only fortunate for the fact they didn't die like the others.

    Meanwhile we have to protect life and deal with violent criminals, armed with whatever they bring to violate life. But whatever. To prohibitionists, facts are only a means to a self-dealing end.

    Prohibition is always about feeling morally superior about something they fear because of ignorance, while smugly living in complete blindness to the real problems real life presents for everyone outside of their social bubble.

    The whole decade needs an asterisk.

      While I've read there have been other knife attacks, I think your statement is greatly exaggerated.

      Dozens? Prove it.
