Because that's what we ll knew this thread would turn into a debate about anyway.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/oct/22/pupils-wounded-in-sword-attack-at-swedish-school

A masked man stabbed to death a teacher and seriously injured at least four pupils at a school in south-west Sweden, before he was shot by police.

The attacker is being treated in hospital for gunshot wounds, according to reports. There were conflicting reports on whether he was carrying a sword or a knife.

The man, said to be in his 20s, entered the school in Trolhättan, an industrial city near Gothenburg, at around 10am on Thursday. Students locked themselves in classrooms and cupboards to escape the attacker.


Pretty scary stuff but luckily the attacker did not have a gun otherwise the death toll would be far more pronounced.

You think that's bad? Imagine the death count if he had a death star! Hell, even a simple Star Destroyer would have been disastrous!

EDIT: Holy crap, the guy was actually wearing a star wars mask?

Too bad no one had a gun, they couldve shot the guy before he killed that poor teacher

Oh well people will wake up one of these days, how many more stabbings do you people need to realize we need to promote guns and protection?

If the teachers and all pupils had guns only the attacker would have been killed, instead he's alive and others are dead

The police should be shot for shooting the man stabbing the teacher. And then the shooter who shot the police should be shot for shooting the police, shooting the man who was stabbing the teacher.

But which shooter should shoot the last shooter if all shooters get shot by shooter shooters?

this is going to boil down until there are two to three people left on Earth to shoot the people who shot the people etc. And they will do the whole Wild West Showdown thing and put it on YouTube for the dead human race to not see.

Using gun control and "lol Star wars sword guy on the loose!" or whatever jokes kind of takes away the seriousness from this. It's still sad to see a teacher die and students get hurt (did every one of them live?).
I don't know enough about Sweden's culture to get into an argument about this kind of stuff. Though it does seem to be the first case of a school "attack" that I've heard of in Sweden.

Have the police officer who shot the attacker and the guy who should shoot the police officer shoot each other in the chest at the same time.

Have everybody involved shoot each other simultaneously.

Imagine the death toll if he'd been able to get the psychiatric help he needed in time.

If only there had been a law-abiding gun owner there to stop him! There was one ready to help, but she was distracted when a gun fell out of her purse and shot another person in the medical office waiting room they were sitting in.

But hey, just keep fantasizing about how you would have saved the day with your precious guns, wackos

Because that of course NEVER happens.


Well, except for several times a day in the US, if the data can be trusted.

Nah, it's because Kleck catches so much shit from anti-gun folks, even though his research has been independently confirmed repeatedly. It's almost like they don't like what he has to say....go figure...

So, can you actually think of a way to reduce crime in the US without the threat of violence? Seriously, having even a significant minority of your population going armed in order to prevent crime is some seriously dystopic shit.

Given the culture and conditions, no.

Nor it it likely to change anytime soon.
