Anti-gun activists and politicians would have you believe that mass murders can’t happen if we reduce or eliminate the number of guns in private hands. However, as logical people, we know that’s just not true.

According to NBC News,

A group of knife-wielding men attacked a train station in southwestern China on Saturday, leaving at least 27 dead and more than 160 injured in what the country is calling a terrorist strike, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

Four policemen were also injured in the mayhem, which broke out around 9 p.m. (8 a.m. ET) at the Kunming Railway Station in the capital of southwest China’s Yunnan Province.

As it’s clearly been shown, guns are not the only way for evil people to do harm to large numbers of people. Gun control only takes guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens and does nothing to stop incidents like this latest one in China.

The motive behind the attack has not yet been determined, but authorities believe that some detained persons are suspected of taking part in the attack.

The attack was ended when police shot and killed several of the attackers.
