This is a generally uninteresting article from a local paper where I live – the reason I bring it up is because of this quote from one of the politicians:
“A person that’s got skill with a sword in a very big crowd could put a lot more people down with a sword than a gun,” he said. “They’re silent. You’ll have people screaming, but nobody knows what’s going on.”
Essentially the article is about how Utah is one of the only states to allow guns on public college campuses and one of the politicians from a city north of Salt Lake City gave the above quote relating to the recent shooting at Trolley Corners mall in Salt Lake.
I would most certainly be more scared of a guy wielding a gun than some geek with a sword. With a sword you see the guy coming and you run away – with a gun if you run you get shot in the back.
Seriously, what is this guy thinking? He is right up there with the guys who think video games are the cause of all the violence we are having (Jack Thompson I am looking at you.)
