33 Dead, 130 Injured in China Knife-Wielding Spree

Kirsters Baish| The Left wants to blame guns for every problem in America. They used the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting as an opportunity to drive the focus away from the victims and their families and focus Americans on enforcing stricter gun control laws. The reality of it is that we can make ANYTHING illegal, but criminals will still find a way to get their hands on contraband. Making heroin and meth illegal in our country hasn’t helped our drug problem. The only thing that enforcing stricter gun control will do is take away the right to bear arms from upstanding citizens who use their Amendment rights to protect themselves and their families.

To prove that guns don’t kill people, people kill people, we are reporting on an event that took place in China recently. It wasn’t a gun that was used to kill 33 people and injure another 130. It was a knife. Are we going to make knives illegal now too?

A group of men armed with knives launched an attack on a train station in southwestern China this past Saturday. They left 33 dead and injured another 130. Chinese officials are calling this attack a terrorist strike.  

Four of the men responsible for the deadly attack were shot and killed. Only one other was captured alive after the massacre. The attack started around 9 p.m. at the Kunming Railway Station located in the capital of southwest China’s Yunnan Province.

The Kunming government came forward to say “serious violent terrorist attack was planned and organized by Xinjiang separatist forces.”

Ethnic Turkish Uighur separatists have been fighting for their own independent state in Xinjiang, located in northwestern China for some time now. This area is called home by around 10 million Uighur. Uighur are mainly a Muslim community. Throughout the past year, more than 100 people have been murdered during protests in Xinjiang.

A resident of Yunnan, Yang Haifei, reported to Xinhua that he was victim to the attack and walked away with his life, but still had injuries on his chest and back. Yang explained that he was trying to purchase a train ticket when the group of knife-weilding men came barreling into the station. Most of the men were dressed in all black. They began stabbing people immediately.

Yang stated, “I saw a person come straight at me with a long knife, and I ran away with everyone.” He explained that people who were too slow to get away became quick victims.

He went on to say, “They just fell on the ground.”

Yunnan province Vice Governor Gao Feng was quick to assemble an emergency meeting at No. 1 People’s Hospital. This is the same hospital where those injured during the attack were taken to. He explained that the hospitals have taken in 162 people following the attack.

Yunnan News (a state-run network) reported that the men who attacked the train station were wearing what looked like uniforms. Gunshots were only fired after police arrived.

This just goes to show you that it doesn’t take a gun to cause massive damage. When will the Left realize that criminals will find a way to reek havoc no matter what? We can’t disarm upstanding citizens in order to prove a point.
