This story makes for an interesting counterpoint to yesterday's mass
shooting drama... a mass knifing at a Chinese school. Yup, a lone
"knifeman" sliced his way through 22 kids.

Nobody got killed, but if one guy can come close to doing what today's
gunman did, but with a knife, it sort of lets some air out of the gun
control arguments, unless they demand knife control too.

Again it highlights the problem being mental health, not the person's
choice of tools.

Now if the total state control that China exerts cannot stop a mass
knifing, how much hope is there for gun control to actually work here.
(since again, the issue is mental health, not the tools used).
