School stabbing spree: 20 hurt in Pittsburgh-area bloodbath

(Photo: NBC News)

As many as 20 students were hurt, some with life-threatening wounds, when a classmate went on a stabbing rampage through the classrooms and halls of a high school outside Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning, authorities said.

proof if you take away guns, people will still find ways to hurt each other

Yes, but let’s consider that for a moment: Thus far, there have been no deaths. All the victims are expected to live. In the Newtown, Conn. shooting, Adam Lanza killed twenty-six people in less than five minutes. Not maimed — killed.

A gun is going to make a person more lethal, in less time, from further away. With other methods, like a knife, the attacker must get close to their intended targets (versus spraying bullets indiscriminately), and this gives opportunity for others to run and/or subdue the assailant.

When the principal at Newtown tried to stop Lanza, she was murdered. The vice principal in this case was able to tackle the suspect and he was cuffed by the school resource officer. Yes, people will still find ways to hurt each other. There’s no reason to make it easier for them to do so.

Please don’t claim this attack “proves” gun control proponents wrong, or firearms advocates right. I will admit, my first thought was, “Thank God he didn’t have a gun” — however, when are we going to have a discussion about what leads a high school sophomore to this kind of attack as a solution? Or anyone, for that matter? Perhaps he had access to guns and maybe he didn’t. We don’t know.

The undeniable truth here is that for whatever reason, he chose knives, and that choice, in this instance, may have made it more difficult for him to rack up the kind of body count we have seen as a nation in similar mass attacks when a gun is used.

I’ve tended to find that, after shooting sprees, victims don’t post selfies of themselves recovering in hospital. Mainly because they go to the morgue, not the wards.

^ Ahem.

Actually, taking away firearms won’t prevent people from committing acts of heinous violence. It also doesn’t mean that they will be easier to stop because they can’t shoot you from 20 feet away.

A knife is a killer, just like a gun. Pretending like it isn’t, and that guns are worse, is a ridiculous notion. Practically any object can kill if its put into the wrong hands…and in those situations, it won’t matter if they do it from 20 feet away or from 2 feet. If you aren’t prepared for the encounter, you will likely get severely injured and/or die. 

Do you all think that it’s that simple? “Oh he has a knife, he has to get close so it will be harder for him to hurt us.” Do you honestly think those kids in that school had some kind of knife defense training or any self defense training at all in order to prevent them from panicking the moment they realize they might die? Do you think they know how to properly disarm an attacker who is holding a knife and subdue them accordingly? What about the teachers? Don’t assume that because its a melee weapon that you have an advantage. 

Stop trying to force the blame on guns. Blame the people using the guns, and other weapons, to harm others.

hey dawg i’m a united states marine and lemme tell you

we are armed with firearms for a reason
they make us more efficient. they make us more dangerous. they keep us out of melee range of the enemy. we are able to use fire and maneuver (thanks to the distance) to close with and destroy the enemy

if you really believe knives are as dangerous as guns, explain to me why we aren’t just deployed with ka-bars ya fucking shitting infant

be intellectually honest, at the very least. it’s really not much to ask, i promise

And this ^

Yo marine, when’s the last time you were deported to a fucking high school? Didn’t know those students back in Pittsburg were packing so much heat, I guess those stab wounds are just exaggerated. Oh right, they’re not hardened soldiers on a battlefield. They’re not expecting danger at a school. A knife and a gun are both dangerous in ANY instance. The context of HOW dangerous varies from situation to situation. Kitchen? Knife isn’t so dangerous, a gun would be unexpectedly dangerous, because why would a gun be in a kitchen? War? Both are lethal, but you’re probably not reaching for your swiss army. A classroom? I’m pretty sure you’d be expecting NEITHER, so it’s a big fucking deal if either even happens in the first place. 

What these people are trying to get across, is if this kid was a little more capable, people WOULD have died. Violent intent was there. People always try to throw around the gun control arguments, which to be fair, guns should be more strictly regulated. But the problem with these kids is mental. They’re not right in the head. Have you noticed that every headline school shooting lately has been an apathetic white male with an ego problem? And they usually almost without exception kill themselves to avoid responsibility? Don’t you think there’s a pattern there?

If someone wants to kill, they will kill. They don’t need a gun.

I can safely say that Dark Knight Returns is, next to Watchmen, one of the greatest super hero comics ever written. 
Here’s some of that good old fashion over-the-hill Brucie.

DO NOT GIVE OR GET ANY VACCINATIONS FOR YOURSELF OR  YOUR KIDS………..

Ok, lets break this down nice and simple.

Formaldehyde is from the purification of the vaccine. 99.9% of which is removed. The reason it doesn’t give a dosage is so minuscule that it can’t be measured without going into picograms. That’s one trillionth of a gram. You breathe in more formaldehyde by driving down a busy road than in a vaccine.

Thimerosal is NOT elemental mercury, It is a molecular compound made up of carbon, hydrogen, mercury, sodium, oxygen, and surfer. This is used as a preservative for the vaccine. Thimerosal is used in a variety of other things, like tattoo ink, facial creams, nasal sprays. It’s toxic to humans only in fairly large quantities but highly toxic to aquatic born organisms like infectious bacteria. In short, it makes sure you don’t get salmonella from a stray bacteria from the chicken embryos.

As for the dosage of the Thimerosal. That is the most laughable point in this post. It says 25 mcg, that’s micrograms, or one millionth of a gram. To put this in perspective, a dollar bill weighs roughly 1 gram, the average human eyelash is around 80-90 micrograms. The box also says that it contains a 5ml (milliliter/cc) vial which leads me to my next point.

A little simple math and we find out that 25 mcg = 0.00003 ml and a little more math we find that 0.00003 ml is 0.00006% of 5 ml. Let me put this another way. By the age of 5, an American child weighs about 50-55lbs and their body contains 55 mcg of Uranium. I don’t see any kids running around with radiation sickness, so I think they’re safe with a preservative in them.

TL;DR: This is like saying you don’t want your child eating their baked birthday cake because raw eggs were used to make it and you don’t want your child getting salmonella from it.

THANK YOU

Reblogging for the commentary, not in support of the OP.

Antivax is just ignorant.  Plain and simple, people just don’t understand.

formaldehyde is in breast milk, too, but you don’t see anti-vaxxers telling people no to breastfeed…..hmm I wonder why

(note.. vaccine is not vegan. but reblogging because this is the kind of logic people use that KILLS.)

Pretty relevant for me right now. My mom recently had some friends over, and they’re all songbird Jesus freaky and have like, nine kids, and they were talking about how bad vaccines are. Because apparently the “they cause autism” scare is still a thing. But yeah, none of their nine children are vaccinated, which is like LOL thanks for causing fucking waves for everybody because you’re misinformed and selfish.

Here’s a doodle I did that I like. Just me messing around with my brushes. He looks a bit like Dream from Sandman, so I kinda went with the pallet of the comic covers, which I really like.
