Had that occurred here in America, Barack Hussein Obaka and Loretta Lynch and Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom and all the rest of the Leftists would still be bleating about gun control.
Japan knife attack: At least 19 dead
by Euan McKirdy and Emanuella Grinberg
(CNN) At least 19 people were killed and 26 injured in a stabbing spree at a facility for disabled people west of Tokyo, making it one of Japan’s deadliest mass killings since World War II. Nine men and 10 women, ranging in age from 18 to 70, were killed in the attack.Officer Satomi Kurihara of the Sagamihara Fire Department confirmed the death toll at the Tsukui Yamayuri-en facility in Sagamihara, a residential area approximately 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of the capital.Satoshi Uematsu, a 26-year-old who worked at the facility until February, broke in through a window about 2 a.m. Tuesday (1 p.m. ET Monday), Kanagawa Prefecture officials said at a news conference.
Because, as we all know — and Leftists know this best of all — if we eliminate firearms wholesale, then violence will simply plummet and go away. All will be well with the world, birds will sing, clouds will part and the sun will shine.
“What’s the frequency, Kenneth?” Dan Rather knows.
Yes, Leftists are in fact that naive. Logic and the nature of humanity, as I’ve written before, eludes the deluded.
When firearms are eradicated, violence will cease. Right? But wait; what about Australia, where gun deaths are down but knife deaths are climbing. Why might that be? Let’s glance at China, where a knife is the weapon of choice and 130 persons were stabbed at random. 36 persons were stabbed and killed at a Chinese police station in 2013. Eight children were killed by a knife-wielder in Japan. Eight people killed in South Korea. 41 people were stabbed by a 16-year-old in Berlin. A 13-year-old girl was stabbed to death in the UK. The knife is the UK “weapon of choice” for violence, as it is in Israel with Palestinians stabbing and killing Israeli citizens. FBI data indicates you are more likely to be beaten, clubbed or stabbed to death than to be murdered using an AR-15 or any other rifle in the United States.
In Europe, guns are involved in 36 percent of murders and knives are involved in 43 percent. Where is the cry for “knife control”?
Some other interesting statistics.

But let’s stop dancing around the issue of “gun control.” Let’s get down to brass tacks: Demorats and Leftists want out-and-out gun confiscation. Make no mistake about that. Hillary Clinton and all other power elites have their own private police forces. You don’t. They have “theirs” and that is all they care about.
When you get down to it, Leftists and Demorats will only be satisfied when there exists the complete removal of firearms from American citizens. The outright trampling of the Second Amendment. What’s left? Tire irons? Knives?
But here’s one thing you won’t be able to do with a knife or a rock or a lamp or a baseball bat or a torch or a pitchfork: defend yourself against a government. Oppose oppressive government regimes. Governments, all governments, our government, will always be armed with heavy, military grade weapons. Historically, our Second Amendment does not exist to allow Americans to hunt. That’s a ridiculous claim when made by anyone. The Second Amendment exists in America in order to resist tyranny in any form and that includes an over-reaching government, foreign or domestic.
Demorats and Leftists are not grounded in reality. They are only versed in power and money. The citizenry can be armed or it can be disarmed. Those who are disarmed are called Proles, Serfs, Groundlings, Commoners.
In the meantime, criminals will still commit crimes, the mentally unstable will still be unstable, and Leftists will still be unable to grasp these fundamental concepts.
