And sometimes that is not bad.
China cannot be mistaken for an open society, or even a tolerant one when it comes to private ownership of guns. So what's a killer to do? Make do with a knife. 5 "oficials" were killed by one knife wielding (and that is just the party line) nut case. One gun would have stopped him after 1, 2 at the most.
But Guns kill, so Guns are bad. People dont kill, just Guns. So take guns out of the equation, and no more killing! Eden on earth! The best of all worlds! Paradise!
I guess in this case the nut job wanted to send a few to Shangra La sooner than god did.
But at least guns did not kill anybody.
