ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHY GUNS ‘ARE NOT’ THE PROBLEM…
So in this country while the Democrats, and many in our state-controlled media, are busy making the idiotic claim that only if we had stricter gun control laws, such tragedies as the recent shooting in Newtown would never happen, we have had another incident which proves the point that that just ain’t so. Because, in what is yet another example of the creativity of someone who is determined to create a body count point, we have another case in China where 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. This most recent ‘attack’ injured 13 in that country's latest attack on students. The man succeeded in running 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.
The Xinhua News Agency said that the man, identified as 48-year-old Yin Tiejun, later lit a bottle of diesel in an attempt to set his car on fire. Police put out the fire and found the gas tank and firecrackers in the trunk of the car, but Xinhua said Yin told police in an interrogation later that the materials were not meant for an attack. Yin has been detained on charges of endangering public safety, Xinhua also noted. Xinhua went on to describe Yin as having been upset for years that a court did not sentence to death all four assailants involved in the murder of his daughter three years ago. The report did not give further details of the murder but did say that the children hurt in Monday's car crash were not tied to the case. Xinhua also said the man did not act as if he was under the influence of either alcohol or drugs. Students were hospitalized with injuries that included skull fractures and crushed feet, Xinhua said.
The local Fengning county government confirmed the incident in a written statement. Eyewitnesses present said the accident occurred when students were leaving school for noon break and that the car accelerated and knocked down students, many of whom were on bikes. Now I’m sure most remember how it was on December 14 that a Chinese man took a kitchen knife and went on a stabbing spree that left 23 students wounded in an elementary school in Henan province. My point here is that China, where folks can’t own guns, there have been more than a half-dozen such school attacks in less than three years, though the death tolls have been low, largely because knives have been the most-used weapon. But as Democrats in this country are quite fond of saying whenever attempting to justify their calls for stricter gun control, even one death that could have been prevented is too many.
