This thread isn't for the purpose of offering a counter balance to the incident that happened in Connecticut, it is to bring awareness to other incidents outside of the US involving attacks on children. Certainly the Connecticut incident is more severe because of the loss of life involved -- but to degrade other assaults against children by introducing comparisons is disturbing as well.
This thread isn't a comparison in any way shape or form, nor was it intended to be.
Always amazing how people twist themselves in knots to oppose any gun restrictions whatsoever, even to the extent of this very post. The comparison is very obvious. Even when something like this happens though, it is not okay to call for more restrictions, yet the anti-restriction people are always in full force to drive home their anti-gun control agenda before the bodies are even counted.
