Same Crime, Different Tools

The campaign by the government–media complex to disarm the American public is only the beginning. If they really want children to be totally safe — and if communist China is a clue to our future — they will also have to ban knives and even cars:

A man angered by a court ruling in the murder of his daughter rammed a car loaded with a gas tank and firecrackers into a group of middle schoolers, injuring 13 in the country’s latest attack on students.

The man ran down 23 students at Fengning No. 1 Middle School in northern China’s Hebei province on Monday, the official Xinhua News Agency said Tuesday, citing local police.

Xinhua said the man, identified as 48-year-old Yin Tiejun, later lit a bottle of diesel in an attempt to set his car on fire.

Despite the gun restrictions you would expect of a police state, maniacs have made a habit of attacking Chinese schools.

For now our media is blaming the attacks not on knives and cars, but on communist China not being sufficiently communist.

Several of the attacks have been sparked by grudges, which some experts say shows that the violence stems from simmering and widespread frustration over the growing wealth gap…

No extreme of collectivist tyranny will ever be sufficient to appease the media.

On a tip from Bob Roberts.

    So where grabbing guns fails, raising taxes will succeed ?

    To the left, the only answer that makes sense in their deranged minds is for totalitarians to keep reaching for a bigger club

    The fact of the matter is that gun bans don’t prevent mass murder any more than welfare eliminates poverty.

    The problem with leftists of the useful idiot variety is that they actually believe such programs will work as advertised. I don’t oppose gun bans because I like mass murders, or oppose welfare because I like poverty, I oppose them because I know their ostensible goals are fraudulent.

    We can clearly see the proof of this fraud in countries that have already attempted these policies. The common man gives up his right to defend himself, and in return he gets absolutely nothing. No deal.

    Oh no! The Workers’ Paradise is becoming another greedy capitalist empire? Say it ain’t so!

    Maybe they could learn a thing or two from us.

    Their work will not be complete until US corporate tax rates finally surpass the United Arab Emirates

    Oh wait…….
    Although in theory these emirate-level decrees impose tax on the income of all corporate entities, in practice tax is currently only enforced on foreign oil companies and branches of foreign banks.

    I disagree. I do not believe Leftists actually believe their demands for anti-gun laws will work, especially since all one need do is to look back at (their) own “assault weapons” ban several years ago. Crime (did not) go down, as promised by the Leftists. Not at all. Their efforts are directly aimed at a British-style “total gun ban”. Every so often, one of them will accidentally slip and admit it.

    Those on the Left know exactly where the overwhelming majority of violent gun crimes are coming from, but they dare not say anything for fear of “offending” part of their political base.

    Gun laws, like any laws, are only effective with people who obey and respect laws in the first place. There are moutains of evidence proving that legal gun owners tend to be some of the most law-abiding and responsible people in the nation. Fact is, most of them don’t need any laws to tell them how to act.

    War on drugs
    War on poverty
    Class war
    And now a war on guns

  • Mr Evilwrench

    The leftists in charge know what they’re doing, and know what they propose won’t do what they say it will (cf war on poverty, war on drugs, etc); all they need to do is get the useful idiot types to vote for them. This consolidates power.

    The problem in China is most likely just the .gov being an asshole to people. Good thing ours wouldn’t do something like that. Wait, what?

    That’s it–let’s ban cars with gas tanks larger than 5 gallons.

    shhhh…DavidD , they don’t think we’ll know how to make IED’s because they haven’t shown us how on TV
