“The new school year in China began Monday with a horrifying attack,” cnn.com reports. “A man stabbed to death three children at a primary school in central China and then committed suicide by jumping off a building. The attacker broke into Dongfang Primary School in Hubei province around 10:20 a.m., Xinhua news agency said, citing the local government. Wielding a knife [not shown], the man stabbed eight students and a teacher before he took his own life, the report said. Three of the students died, and the six other victims have been hospitalized, Xinhua reported. Two of the students are seriously hurt, it said.” TTAG commentator NYC2AZ emailed the link. He directs our attention to the last paragraph . . .
A number of measures were introduced at the time, including increased security at schools across the country and a regulation requiring people to register with their national ID cards when buying large knives.
“It’s sad to know that our ‘Progressives’ here in the US will only push the ‘if it was a gun, it would have been worse’ narrative instead of admitting to the deep-rooted societal problems that lead to such attacks,” NYC2AZ writes, “and the inconvenient truth that ‘the government’ can’t prevent this shit.”
