BEIJING (Reuters) - A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and an adult at an elementary school in central China on Friday, state media reported, the latest in a series of attacks on schoolchildren in the country.

The man attacked the children at the gate of a school in Chenpeng village in Henan province, the Xinhua news agency reported.

Police arrested a 36-year-old man, identified as villager Min Yingjun, Xinhua said. It did not give further details of the extent of the injuries.

Much more concerning: the power of the NRA in this country; more people are murdered by "legal" guns than by any other type of killing.

Anyone who equates knives with guns is a moron.

Full stop.

So you're saying that the children defended themselves with knives?

Are you really saying that?

The argument is weak. Knives have purposes other than killing.

At least in my state there are laws regarding what kind of knives can be carried. Switchblades are illegal here. How many mass shootings do we have to endure before we start to at least be able to talk about how to stop them? Gun control advocates and Second Amendment rights advocates always go to their corners and trash talk each other when something like this happens -- how useless.

Man with a knife injures 22 people. Man with a gun KILLS 27. You choose.

So if the Chinese psycho did this earlier does that mean the Connecticut psycho has engaged in a sort of "copycat" crime?

Please source your claim "No one ever dies from knife attacks. Proven fact."

Knives are used most often to murder a person(s) with intimate ties to the attacker. It's a specific act to extract personal revenge.

Knives have never killed anyone. Knives are non-lethal.

Since this seems more common in China, I think we only have to ban Chinese cutlery.
