22 Students Slashed By Knife-Wieldening Maniac In China

It's very odd timing that this story shows up now-- and I don't mean to suggest a conspiracy theory, or suggest it's a false story, or anything like that.

It's just that the timing is in fact odd. (It's strange that no one can say anything without a series of jam-packed implications automatically flowing from it any more.)

BEIJING (Reuters) - A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and an adult at an elementary school in central China on Friday, state media reported, the latest in a series of attacks on schoolchildren in the country.

...

There have been a series of attacks on schools and schoolchildren around China in recent years, some by people who have lost their jobs or felt left out of the country's economic boom.

The story comes almost as if to make the point: Liberals talk about banning guns as if it's the same as banning murder and banning evil. That's why they are so dogmatic and emotional on the point: How can you be in favor of murder? How can you oppose banning evil?

But guns are not the same as murder, and murder is not the same as guns. Here, in China, a man showed up with murderous intent and armed himself with just a knife. True, he didn't kill as many people as the gun-wielding maniac (or maniacs) in Connecticut did. I suppose that will be the lesson the left draws from this.

Note, by the way, that such attacks have escalated in China due to job dislocations and poor economic circumstances (at least for some). One can find a lot of Hidden Causes, and some additional Villains Behind It All, if one likes.
