Do Something About Guns!
Ah yes, we have to do something about those guns. I mean, America “is the only developed nation” that allows it’s citizens access to firearms. That results in the deaths of millions of innocent children and pets. Those damn cops are always cruising around looking for a young black child, just walking down the street on his way to his rap-music audition, eating Skittles, to blow away. We need to disarm the citizens here in America where only the cops have guns. Oh wait! Then more Skittle eating black children could be shot. Hmmmm … maybe we need to rethink this idea …
We could move to China. Hell, it’s damn near impossible to get a gun there …

9 Knife Wielding Attackers Killed 50 Miners in China
While the media obsesses over the recent mass shooting in Oregon, and once again calls for more gun control in the United States, they’ve largely ignored a very telling story out of China. In a country where it’s nearly impossible for the average citizen to attain a privately owned firearm, mass killings are still a problem.
On September 18th, a coal mine in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region was attacked by 9 knife wielding assailants. The Chinese authorities are blaming the incident on Uyghurseparatists, since most of their victims were of Chinese descent. The attackers raided the facility, killed the guards, and proceeded to enter the dormitories where the workers were sleeping before murdering them as well. Several policemen who responded to the attack were also killed, and the officers who survived had to flee the scene when they were chased by the assailants. All told, about 50 people were murdered and 50 more were injured.
Daaaaaammmmnnnnnn … China needs to do something about “knife-violence.” I mean geez! 50 people killed and 50 injured by 9 guys with knives? Holy Moly! Well, at least you don’t have to worry about walking out to your mail box and having some mentally challenged person blow you away with an “assault weapon.”
