A multi story Japanese animation studio was soaked in gasoline and set on fire killing 33 and counting. Arsonist apparently yelled "drop dead" and "die" while burning the building. Apparently it is possible to have mass killings by nut cases without guns.

The people who cry "Take away guns!" Are going to eat Crow with this one. They will scramble and gasp for straws now that they're were absolutely no guns used in this horrific tragedy. May the injured heal and recover nicely and the ones who passed away RIP and my hearr goes out to both the injured and the passed away ones Friends and Family.

?????
I'm against guns
yet
I am well aware that there are other ways for mass killings such as driving a car on a sidewalk
regardless of this tragedy in Japan, the bottom line is their murder rate is a lot lower then ours

Terpined you are smarter than this. Don't throw out s*** that supports your beliefs that isn't true and actually pay attention to what happens in the rest of the world.

From Reddit:

"Canada School Shootings since 1960: 15 incidents with 37 dead.

US School Shootings since 1960: 358 incidents with 481 dead."

The US population is 10x the Canadian population, 37 X 10 = 370. That is a similar size problem for Canada.

We already had proof you can use other things besides guns. Take 911. So they made boarding more restrictive, reinforced cockpit doors, and so forth.

They didn't make them more available. No hijacked airliners in the US since then.

Notice you didn't mention that they put people with guns on the planes for protection. That little fact doesn't fit your narrative I guess.

That is what you said in your original post. Most countries do have some school shootings the problem is not unique to the US. I will acknowledge that if we pull out war torn countries the problem is likely worse in the US. We might also claim that the left and right are at war in the US and it too is a war torn country as people committ violence trying to maintain life as they know it.

Sure it does, because they gave them to air marshalls not 2nd amendment arming the passengers.
