The Knoxville News-Sentinel reported today (paper edition) on another in a series of attacks on schools. It seems odd that in the utopian Peoples Republic that such a thing could occur. After all, this is, according to the reporter,
"unusual in a country where extreme violence is comparatively rare and strict controls keep most people from owning guns.
The reporter fails to account for the fact that during the Great Leap Forward, perhaps 30 million or more people were starved to death. Unmentioned, also, is the infanticide rate and abortion rate in China, some 13 million in 2008.
Don't be fooled, 13 million aborted in a single year in China doesn't ad up to "comparatively rare."
It makes guns in bars in Knoxville seem pretty insignificant.
