Fine, let's do that shit.

Some idiot went crazy in China and stabbed 22 children. I believe every single one of them lived, although one is in traction I believe.

I will take requiring a crazy person to use a less dangerous weapon every day of the week. Every day of the week.

Anything to require more effort, more time, having to reload faster, having to reload sooner, having to jump through more hoops, having to know more, having to expose himself more... Anything to make it harder to kill people.

Oh, wait... did you instead mean, 1-2% of the .0037% so.. somewhere around
.00000076% ?
You've avoided, multiple times now in this thread, to admit what you'd need to see before you can admit we have a gun homicide epidemic.

And we both know why. It's a lot easier to move the goalposts in the face of mounting evidence when you don't have to pre-establish a standard.

And as per your usual course, it's vacuous.

So let's put an end to that silly bullshit and put you on the grid: we kill people 12 times more with guns than the rest of our Western brethren. That's not an epidemic to you?

I'm basing a lot of my arguments on police groups, not the media.
