Worst Ever?

The Plains Feeder has an interesting point here:

The media is noting that the Virginia Tech massacre on Monday is the very worst school killing ever in America since Charles Whitman went nuts on the Texas Tower. The media bias against the Second Amendment shows clearly in this assertion. The fact is, the 1927 Bath, Michigan school killings had a death toll of 45 with 58 injured. So why doesn't Andrew Kehoe, the Bath killer, get any mention? Kehoe didn't use a firearm! He blew up the school with a bomb. No gun control mileage here. Into the wastebasket of history goes the Bath School tragedy. No useful purpose.

The truth is making the rounds. The worst mass murders in our history were committed by people wielding boxcutters, pocketknives, fertilizer, and fuel oil.

That would be 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombings, respectively.

And don't get me started on the effectiveness of gun control on people such as Ted Bundy.

Steadily eroding the ways for which people can defend themselves from human predators won't solve anything.

You can't ban teeth and fingernails, after all.
