I wonder what the death rate is between people being cut by knives and shot by guns.

Remember that mass stabbing in China on the same day as Sandy Hook? 0 deaths.

Continue to pretend they're the same and make yourself look like an idiot.

knives kill roughly 1/4 of the people killed by guns.

I probably phrased that poorly; what I want to know is the % of people who get cut by knives who die vs. people who get shot by guns and die.

I know I've nicked my fingers probably a dozen times while cooking. I am interested in how that compares to someone who has shot themselves a dozen times.

Not the same, IMO. Knives are much more dangerous to the person holding it vs the person holding a gun.

You can belittle the threat of sharp knives if you want.

I would not be so arrogant myself.

Going to dull my knives tonight when I get home.
