    Mental instability is the cause in a majority of these kinds of attacks, not the weapon used. Maybe next time someone decides to use a chainsaw, baseball bat, or any other potentially lethal device. People need to wake up and recognize that mental healthcare is severely lacking in many countries around the world and innocent people are paying the price because these people are not being identified and properly treated for their issues.

    If you watch the video he only slashes at their arms like once or twice and then leaves them alone. Quite frankly I don't think he really had the desire to kill but to just harm them because if he really wanted to kill why would he just slash at their arms and then leave them alone, why isn't he stopping grabbing the kid and then just stab them in the torso or even the neck, but you can bet those kids were rightfully terrified out of their minds I know I would be. Watching the girl run through the gate only to have him come up behind and then slash at her arms while she sat there man is that terrifying. I was basically on the edge of my seat, I didn't want to look to see what would happen next.

    To say he didn't have access to a weapon to kill them is just not true, metal knives are extremely lethal if you know which parts of the body to stab.

    No-one was killed but 22 children were injured in the attack at a school in the central Chinese province of Henan on Dec 14, the same day that 20 children were shot dead at a primary school in Newtown, Connecticut in the U.S.

    hey US of A! here's THE difference, 'nuff said!

    "The headlines are still dominated by the American attack, I haven't seen reports about the attack in Henan which happened on the same day," wrote one user of Sina Weibo-a website similar to Twitter.

    Chinese authorities don't want to encourage copycat attacks.

    To say he didn't have access to a weapon to kill them is just not true, metal knives are extremely lethal if you know which parts of the body to stab.

    Metal Knives can kill only one person for each strike. When he stabbed someone, he needed more time for pulling out the knife from body. It may be 4 seconds or 5 seconds. However it has sufficient time for the rest for running away. It has sufficient time for counter attack from adult person.

    Unlike metal knives, military style semi automatic AR 15 or AK 15 has rapid fire power. Their magazines can accommodate 30 or 50 or 100 bullets. Some of them has telescopic reload system. Within a few minutes, 100 or more person can be killed easily. If the killer used revolver, he could kill only 6 person because he needs to reload every 6 bullets have been used. That reloading a few seconds is critical point for someone Life and Death.

    Difference between Knives and Guns is Speed. Guns have lightening speed. Knives do not have. Knives can be blunt too. Guns can be jammed however it is rare. If the killer Gun got Jammed, it was a winning lottery for victims.

    In this instance his victims did not have the ability to out run him. I don't believe a slash to the jugular vein would take 4-5 seconds. Agreed about the counter attack from an adult person.

    Unlike metal knives, military style semi automatic AR 15 or AK 15 has rapid fire power.

    So does pump action and lever action, you can fire 4-6 rounds per second.

    Difference between Knives and Guns is Speed. Guns have lightening speed. Knives do not have.

    Agreed, but I still believe that you can inflict a devastating wound with a knife that you can't recover from very quickly, such as a slash to the jugular vein in the neck. I think people under estimate the power of a knife if the attacker knows how to wield one.

    hey US of A! here's THE difference, 'nuff said!

    But that begs the question based off of the video was he actually trying to kill the children.

    What is a telescopic reload system? I have never heard of a gun that can reload with a telescopic system. Can you provide an example.
