What damage can be done

Obviously both are tragedies but the irony of these two events happening the same day and the comparison of the damage done is quite clear.

Twenty-two primary school children were wounded in a knife attack Friday in central China, authorities said.

The attack took place at the entrance to the Chenpeng Village Primary School in Henan province, according to the public information department of Guangshan county, the area where the school is located. An adult was also wounded, it said.

Several of the children are in critical condition, the state-run website said, citing local authorities.

This is horrible, of course, but one cannot help but not that while the carnage is great, it is also greatly less than the guy with a semi-automatic can do in a similar situation.

Our "liberal" media once again providing cover for the small penis wing of the Republican Party. I'm sure we'll being hearing shortly about the number of lives that would've been saved if only those 6 year-olds had been packing.
