If there was ever a reason to stop gun control, we now have a perfect example. In broad daylight, a self-identified Muslim shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ and an accomplice repeatedly stabbed and tried to behead an off-duty soldier in front of dozens of passers-by. What could they do? They were unarmed. Someone with a gun could have shot the men at a safe distance.
The gun v. sword scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark comes to mind.
Weapons are not the problem. If people want to murder, they’ll find a way. If a gun isn’t available, a couple of meat cleavers and knives will do the job.
