Stabbings in Sydney and elsewhere show that societal violence is not an issue of guns.
One woman was killed and another seriously injured by a knife wielding man shouting “Allahu akbar,” in downtown Sydney Australia Tuesday. It hasn’t been ruled a terrorist act despite the words shouted during the attack. As reported by the Guardian:
A man who allegedly stabbed a woman to death in Sydney’s central business district before attacking others on a busy city street with a butcher’s knife was arrested carrying information about terrorist attacks and extremist ideologies on a USB drive.
But police say the man did not have any known links to terror groups, and that he acted alone. The attacks are not being treated as a terrorist attack, the New South Wales police commissioner, Mick Fuller, said on Tuesday night.
Last week there were these reports of attacks with knives:
An “angry” man went on a killing spree armed with a sharp object, possibly a knife or machete, as he went from apartments to local businesses in what seems to be a random series of attacks. Four people are dead and two others are injured.
Police have an unidentified suspect, reportedly a 33-year-old Hispanic male, in custody.
We also have this report from USA Today of another mass attack: 2 women stabbed, 1 fatally, in ‘random’ attack at Pittsburgh bus stop.
Another stabbing took place in Israeli, where a soldier was stabbed to death as reported by the Associated Press.
What should we conclude from all of these attacks?
What are we to glean from these disparate attacks? Are we to conclude that we now suddenly have a knife violence epidemic? With attendant hashtags #KnifeReformNow and calls to ban ‘military style’ edged weapons or ‘Assault Weapons’?
These were all random incidences, with it likely being that there is no connection between them aside from Media contagion very much like those involving firearms. But unlike firearms, the national socialist media won’t try to exploit these deaths for political gain.
Something else that cannot be banned.
Even more so than guns, knives would be impossible to control since these weapons are easily made by hand. As they say, all you need is a material that will hold an edge and way to make it sharp. Common materials: stone, wood, metal, plastic, ceramic and even hard candy can be used to make a weapon. It would be impossible to ban stone, wood, metal, plastic, ceramic and hard candy, so it would be impossible to ban edged weapons.
These incidents of violence show that it’s something more than mere inanimate objects. With the solution just one more Liberty Control measure away. It’s something far deeper than the fact of more than 120 million people and 400 – 600 million guns. These reports show that the gun part of the violence ‘epidemic’ is nothing other than a false narrative.
These incidents show that the problem of societal violence won’t be solved with a bunch of nonsensical hashtags or even more draconian restrictions on Liberty. The solution will have to be addressed with a restoration of moral underpinnings and culture, not with the forcible taking of people’s property without due process or government control of that property.
