I hate using the deaths of innocent people to make a point but people need to understand that guns are not the problem.
At least 19 people are dead after man went on a stabbing rampage in a facility that cares for the disabled in a town near Tokyo.
There are conflicting reports of the number injured or killed. Injuries are ranging from 20 to 45 and deaths are reported between 15 to 20.
National state broadcaster “NHK” reported that 15 people have died and 45 were injured – of which 20 are in a serious condition. Kyodo News agency reported that 19 people are dead and 20 were injured.
A suspect in his 20’s broke into the facility, according to Japanese news agency NHK. He turned himself into police shortly after 3 a.m. In less than 30 min., from start to arrest, 20 are dead with a number greater than 20 injured.
The attack comes after Mayu Tomita, a Japanese pop star, was left in a coma in May when a fan stabbed her dozens of times after she allegedly turned down a gift he had sent her.
Tomohiro Iwazaki, 27, later confessed to stabbing Tomita in the neck and chest. He claimed he ‘ambushed’ the star because she returned a gift he sent her.
In March last year, five people were also stabbed to death in a knife attack on a Japanese island. A man was arrested after the victims were discovered in two houses.
So much for the belief that “Gun Control” will prevent mass killings or even limit the carnage.
If there is a will there is a way…
