Violence in a gun free zone abroad

Postby bignflnut » Mon Jun 19, 2017 9:22 am

A 22-year-old man detonated an improvised explosive device (IED), or homemade bomb, at a nursery in the eastern Chinese city of Xuzhou, killing nine, including the assailant, and injuring about 65 others.


The explosion occurred Thursday afternoon in eastern China’s Xuzhou, Jiangsu province.

“Most attacks in China – where gun controls are strict – are carried out by assailants using knives or homemade explosives,” acknowledges the Telegraph.

Local law enforcement revealed the explosion did not harm any students nor teachers, but National Public Radio (NPR) notes that “images taken in the aftermath of the blast showed children and adults, their clothing burned, strewn about at the gate of the kindergarten in pools of blood.”

You don't say...people find ways to violently attack others, even when they can't get firearms?

Kids and adults unharmed? Love that press pool...
