What about the 50 plus million Kulaks who were murdered by the Soviets? They had been disarmed.<quoted text>
The proof is in the logic..if there are 300 people dead or injured in the US by guns...then that 300 would logically be minimised if the weapons of choice were manual ones...Ie...it would be harder to run around a picture theatre and kill as many with a knife, or stand in a bell tower and throw knives or bats?
What about the 80 plus million Chines peasants who were murdered by the Chinese communists? They too had been conveniently disarmed before hand.
What about those killing fields in Cambodia, where the peasants had disarmed, and then murdered by the hundreds of thousands?
What's more acceptable to you: A few murders a year, or several million a year?
