There was indeed an attack in the Henan province of China, according to BBC News. A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and 1 elderly woman. Two of the kids were wounded seriously. The attacker was overpowered by security guards. The guards were apparently there due to previous attacks that did claim the lives of 20 children.
Fortunately in Henan there were no fatalities yesterday and that's why no one saw fit to delve more closely in that manner. However, I believe there's an additional reason why the lamebrain-mainstream media chose to ignore those attacks. The Chinese assailant did not use any guns in his vicious crimes. Nor were guns used in the previous Chinese situations that did prove fatal to some children. And yes, apparently China has "large knife registration", but that didn't stop what happened Friday.
Fifty years ago, the US didn't have nearly the number of gun control laws on the books as it does now. Yet we never heard of such occurrences. Of course at that time we knew better than to allow our babies to be murdered in their own mothers' wombs. Abortion happened, but not nearly at the rate that it happens now and society condemned - not condoned - it.
Already we hear kvetching and ballyhooing for more "gun control", as if that really addresses the root of the problem. The usual whiners and howlers include:
- NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg - (the guy who banned 16-oz sodas from NYC)
- NY Gov Andrew Cuomo
- Piers Morgan
- NY Rep Jerrold Nadler (Hey! At least he's being honest!)
And lest you think that these libs are leading by example, think again. Barbara Boxer and Chuck Shumer have concealed-carry permits. Why don't they think that we citizens, we the Great Unwashed, have the right to self defense?
All the above-named progressives have something else in common - they promote abortion: that is, the murder of babies. So of course they won't function on the actual criminal, but merely the criminal's choice of tools. If they subjected the criminal to scrutiny, they must also subject to the same scrutiny those who assist the criminal in his/her murders. Could it be that they unconsciously realize that they themselves are complicit in murder?
In my post yesterday, I related the remarks made by Mother Teresa during the 1994 National Prayer Breakfast. During the lighting of the Vatican Christmas tree, the Holy Father repeated her thoughts when he warned that abortion and "gay marriage" are real threats to peace. Unless we, as a nation, wake up and repent, these acts of violence will increase.
