    I've got a feeling this would've never been allowed to transpire in the American South ...

    I guess this is something the gun rights people can point to, to show how if somebody is really determined to kill people, he'll find a way to do it.

    As opposed to your garden-variety stabbing spree.

    What if the crazy guy with the knife had a gun?

    Then it would be a shooting spree...and a lot worse.

    Then the lib's in the media would be slobbering all over themselves about "see, see, see -- this is why we need gun control....."

    And they'd have a valid point. So what's yours?

    The Akihabara district is one of more insanely crowded areas of Tokyo. I can't imagine how many more would've died yesterday if this nutbag had opened fire into that crowd with an automatic rifle instead of of knife.
